I do not think I ever recognized the number of popular songs that mention the end of the world: watching for it, waiting for it, thinking of it, singing of it, hoping for it.

I cannot give you a full list, or any list really. I suppose it is possible that I am exaggerating. Maybe there are in fact very few that do mention such a thing.

It is true, though, that I hear the words or their equivalent in many songs although they are not in fact in the recording at all.

I think now I am in fact merely whispering the words, or pronouncing them subconsciously, in time with many songs as I hear them -- trying to match the sentiments to the rhythm. Singing the words to the melodies. Forcing them to fit.

I hear them all the time. End of the world, end of the world, end of the world...it is becoming mundane. It is becoming inane.

Pervasive.

Meaningless.

I do not think I will even recognize it if and when it arrives.
