Global Killer: Defending Earth from Asteroids

15 – Global Killer: Defending Earth from Asteroids

The threat of a global killer in the form of an asteroid plummeting toward earth is ever present, and several celebrities want to make everyone aware of this via a new event: Asteroid Day!

We talk about movies featuring asteroids, actual asteroid collisions, and the people who want us to know of this risk of extinction. Oh- and there’s plenty of discussion about Queen guitarist Brian May’s (Isaac Newton-esque) gray locks!

Featured Song: Tunguska

It came out of nowhere,
and hit my blindside.
it served me right, well I guess it served me right.
And I was unaware,
and tongue-tied,
left on the ropes, with no antidote.

And I thought the world was going to end,
I couldn’t speak, my stomach dropped,
I threw up in my mouth as you delivered the knockout,
my mind was in some sort of state of shock.

When you broke the bond,
a thousand times an atom bomb,
I was blown away,
just like Tunguska.
Flattened by a fireball,
to only a shadow on the wall,
Just another meaningless,
second-rate apocalypse,

Too hot inside me,
like skin on fire,
I couldn’t bear it,
but couldn’t escape it.
Angry and paralyzed,
like the air can’t reach my lungs,
completely knocked back.
Completely gobsmacked,

And I thought the world was going to end,
I couldn’t speak, my stomach dropped.
I was screaming nyet,
when you made good on all your threats,
my mind was in some sort of state of shock.

When you broke the bond,a thousand times an atom bomb,
I was blown away,
just like Tunguska.
Flattened by a fireball,
to only a shadow on the wall,
Just another meaningless,
second-rate apocalypse,

A global-killer,
with civility,
and the sudden impact,
made a crater out of me.

When you broke the bond,
a thousand times an atom bomb,
I was blown away,
just like Tunguska.
Flattened by a fireball,
to only a shadow on the wall,
Just another meaningless,
second-rate apocalypse.
