Lyrics:

this year began like the one before
little did we know what lay in store
what the hand of fate held up her sleeve
even now it's hard to believe

reset the clocks, inspect the locks
welcome to year zero
never more as it was before
welcome to year zero
welcome to year zero

for this, there is no precedent
so many crises, no President
the old rules no longer apply
this planet I don't even recognize

delete the blogs, release the dogs
welcome to year zero
the past today has been swept away
welcome to year zero
welcome to year zero
welcome to year zero
welcome to year zero

we're starting from scratch like a newborn child
baby steps first soon running wild
just try to put this genie back in its lamp
you can't unring this bell or turn time back

reset the clocks, inspect the locks
welcome to year zero
never more as it was before
welcome to year zero

delete the blogs, release the dogs
welcome to year zero
the past today has been swept away
welcome to year zero
welcome to year zero
welcome to year zero
welcome to year zero

This whole tune took me back to the early 80's man...

All I could hear in my head the whole time the song was playing was "Stray Cat Strut"

Your voice even sounds a bit like a crooning Brian Setzer.

This is a first round draft pick for the soundtrack of the real life apocalypse movie we are all about to star in...

Thanks, I appreciate the feedback. Yeah, I was concerned it sounded too much like Stray Cat Strut. Loved your line "about the soundtrack of the real life apocalypse movie we are all about to star in". It should have been part of the lyrics.
