Cigarettes After Sex - Apocalypse

[Verse 1]
You leapt from crumbling bridges watching cityscapes turn to dust
Filming helicopters crashing in the ocean from way above

[Chorus]
Got the music in you baby, tell me why
Got the music in you baby, tell me why
You've been locked in here forever and you just can't say goodbye

[Verse 2]
Kisses on the foreheads of the lovers wrapped in your arms
You've been hiding them in hollowed out pianos left in the dark

[Chorus]
Got the music in you baby, tell me why
Got the music in you baby, tell me why
You've been locked in here forever and you just can't say goodbye

[Bridge]
Your lips, my lips
Apocalypse
Your lips, my lips
Apocalypse
Go and sneak us through the rivers
Flood is rising up on your knees
Oh, please
Come out and haunt me, I know you want me
Come out and haunt me

In “Apocalypse,” Greg acknowledges the pain his new lover has suffered in her past relationships. He’s urging her to let go of heartbreak and the fear of feeling let down, and to embrace the highs and lows of this new relationship. Greg discussed the beauty and danger that comes with letting go of fear and fully indulging in any relationship on his 2017 interview coupdemain: You go into love, and you’re pretty much going to get hurt at some point, it’s just kind of the way it is. But if admitting that the person is worth it, that they’re worth the pain, they’re worth the trouble and it doesn’t matter because you juts want them, and anything else that comes after that is another side? I really believe in that. "What the song is about is sort of vague and strange. It kinda involves some girls I dated in my hometown- based on how they were really imaginative and they wanted to travel and see the world but they were trapped in the city. They were sort of aimless as well. It’s sort of a love letter to them."
