The Lyrics

Hey Jebediah, just got some news from New York City.
Seems the economy’s bent on crashing,
and tonight Jeb, it ain’t lookin’ pretty.
I swear it’s true
death, destruction, mayhem too
What will we do?

Hey Jebidiah, I know that you’re a prepper
so break out those MREs and pass the salt and pepper
Come on, let’s eat.
Put down your phone and take a seat
No time to tweet…

Oh, get set for anarchy
oh, get set for anarchy
oh, get set for anarchy
oh, get set for anarchy
set for anarchy

Hey Jebediah, although my time with you’s been stellar,
I’d appreciate it now if you’d stay on your side of the cellar.
Don’t come near.
You’ve made your intentions oh so clear
I love ya too, but I ain’t queer.

Hey Jebediah, hear that mob raging in the distance?
Let’s dig up those ARs you buried out back here last summer and show them some resistance.
Lock and load.
I see them coming up the road.
They’ll all get pwned.

Oh, get set for anarchy
oh, get set for anarchy
oh, get set for anarchy
oh, get set for anarchy

The crowd out there’s a thousand strong,
but we’ve got guns and ‘nades and bombs.
We’ll shoot ‘em all if there’s no other way.
Our friends would all make fun of us,
but they won’t last too long because
they’ve gone and surrendered all their arms away.
Jebediah I can promise you
that by the time that they get through
the world will never ever be the same.
And who’s to blame…?

Hey Jebediah, I know that times are gettin’ tougher
but with you gnawing off my arm, that makes it even rougher.
I’m not dead.
You’ll have to wait for me to die before you’re fed.
You know that's what I said.
Hey, Jebediah, I’m not dead.
No, I’m not dead.

Oh, get set for anarchy
oh, get set for anarchy
oh, get set for anarchy
oh, get set for anarchy
set for anarchy

Wish I could send this to Funny, I think. Sort of reminds me of a movie in which a bunch of people took refuge in a basement, thinking there had been a nuclear attack. After a while they all tried to kill each other. Then someone ran outside and found out it was only a test of the alert system. By then some people had died. There is a bit of "Timothy" and "The Most Dangerous Game" in this parody, too. I'd give you a "thumbs up", but some hungry zombie might bite it off.

Hey Patrick, don't know the movie you are referring to, but "The Divide" (2011) was similar. Set in NY with a nuclear attack in progress, apt residents flee to the landlord's underground bunker to survive. It takes only days for anarchy to break out and people to devolve into animals. Aren't you glad in Kansas that those missile silos are being converted over to doomsday apts? One is already completed and you get 900 sq ft for $1.5 mil and 1800 for $3 mil... sold out. Silo reinforced, military type security, food storage and underground water supply, movie theater, swimming pool, and well furnished residences loaded with tech and comfort. Air supply is filtered. But downside is 5 year limit post-apocalypse. Better take along some cyanide tabs and no civvy firearms allowed. Can anyone say rape, pillage, and murder internally within months?
