As The World Caves in Lyrics By Matt Maltese | As The World Caves Chords

As the World Caves In Lyrics (Matt Maltese’s 2017 ballad) is a sexy but sinister love song hinging around the idea of a night of passion between Theresa May (the UK Prime Minister at the time) and Donald Trump (the US President at the time).
Many felt that the two governments were a worrying sign that the world was heading towards its demise.
 
As The World Caves in Lyrics
Maltese has since tweeted that the song is no longer about Trump/May, however, the song crystallizes this apocalyptic feeling perfectly and the song remains relevant today, as the world continues to cave in.

[Verse 1]
My feet are aching
And your back is pretty tired
And we’ve drunk a couple bottles, babe
And set our grief aside
The papers say it’s doomsday
The button has been pressed
We’re gonna nuke each other up, boys
‘Til old Satan stands impressed
 
[Pre-Chorus]
And here it is, our final night alive
And as the earth burns to the ground
 
[Chorus]
Oh, girl, it’s you that I lie with
As the atom bomb locks in
Oh, it’s you I watch TV with
As the world, as the world caves in
 
 
[Verse 2]
You put your finest suit on
I paint my fingernails
Oh, we’re going out in style, babe
And everything’s on sale
We creep up on extinction
I pull your arms right in
I weep and say “Goodnight, love”
While my organs pack it in
 
[Pre-Chorus]
And here it is, our final night alive
And as the earth burns to the ground
 
[Chorus]
Oh, girl, it’s you that I lie with
As the atom bomb locks in
Oh, it’s you I watch TV with
As the world, as the world caves—
Oh, it’s you that I lie with
As the atom bomb locks in
Yes, it’s you I welcome death with
As the world, as the world caves in
 
[Outro]
As the world caves in
