<wake-up call... but the moaning sheep... are still asleep...>

John Brunner sci-fi
Stare at me with bug’s eye
A nightmare... oh what a nightmare

Momma, Poppa, anti-time <?>
Anti-you and anti-I
A fright-scare... one you might wear

John Brunner sci-fi
Catholic church and apple pie
It’s almost right now... it’s any time

Now... now... now-now-now

<chorus>
It’s later than you think
The carnival of chaos
It’s later than you think
Kiss your challenges goodbye
It’s later than you think

It’s late... it’s late... it’s late, oh my!

Oooooooh... won’t be long
Oooooooh... won’t be long (yeah, yeah, yeah!)

John Brunner sci-fi
Stare at me with bug’s eye
A nightmare... oh what a nightmare

Peanutbutter, mint jelly
Flat-back and swollen belly
It’s on the air... now, it’s everywhere

John Brunner sci-fi
Oooh... you never told me, told me
Those lies, those lies... those pretty little lies

<chorus>
It’s later than you think
The carnival of chaos
It’s later than you think
Kiss your gamma goodbye
It’s later than you think

It’s late, I know it’s late, I know it’s late, oh my!

<bridge>
My momma told me that it was, gonna be alright (my momma lied)
And my daddy promised me it was, gonna be okay
In 1962... it never came true
Now I don’t know... where to go
Or who... or who to pray... to

<chorus>
It’s later than we thought
The carnival of chaos
It’s later than we thought
Ooh, we kissed it all <?> goodbye
It’s later than we thought

It’s late... It’s now... it’s uh, bye-bye!

(all...) John Brunner
(... over now) Oh... you never told me those lies
(all...) John Brunner... you never told me those lies
(... over now) Those lies... pretty white lies

John Brunner sci-fi
Well, you stared at me with bug’s... bug’s eye
John Brunner sci-fi
Well, you never... you never... you never told me those...

Lies!
