The Lyrics

had no way of knowin'...that one day
people...would be rattled by their views
most unhappy...yes, they're sad
oh, we're gonna meet our doom some day

what the people read...is enough to wipe their smiles
they are so confused...how you knew how
sendin' them a message...man will be through
oh, what trauma...just who were these guys ?

oh, oh...listen to the mystics
oh, oh...listen to the mystics
oh, oh...listen to the mystics
end of time !

well, they know...you wrote letters..everything you say
they can see it comin' in their day
they're unhappy...they've no chance
oh, there ain't no chance for us, they say

and if they're grievin', cause of you
and believin' what they see
there ain't nothin' they can do or say
this ain't good...end of time
oh, baby...death ! ...the mystics say

oh, oh...listen to the mystics
oh, oh...listen to the mystics
oh, oh...listen to the mystics
end of time !

they ain't crazy...they deliver
predictin' hassles, sins and lies
and the proof is growin' bigger
listen to the mournful sounds
as mankind slowly dies

oh, oh...listen to the mystics
oh, oh...listen to the mystics
oh, oh...listen to the mystics
end of time !
