Voorafgaand aan 2012 deden allerlei ongeloofwaardige voorspellingen over het einde van de wereld/de maya-kalender de ronde.

Van de voorspellingen was niets waar en het hele idee ervan was natuurlijk absurd, maar dat weerhield Mc er niet van zich te laten verleiden tot het schrijven van ‘2012’.

Lyrics – 2012

Can you hear the wind blowing
can you see the stars that shine?
Can we see where it is going
as we drink the bitter wine?

But we walk through the shadow of the valley and the mist
and the mountains are covered with treest
as we walk on the mountains and the snow the sun shines
and the wind blows a gentle breeze
and it is cold…..

Can you see the sun is falling
from the sky down to the earth?
Can you hear the piper calling?
Will you hear my final words?

But we walk through the shadow of the valley and the mist
and the mountains are covered with treest
as we walk on the mountains and the snow the sun shines
and the wind blows a gentle breeze
and it is cold…..

You poor soul come let me take you
in my arms tonight
as the dark waves come and the world collapses
you’ll know I was right
let me take away your fear
come stand with me and fight
as the cold waves wash all over us
the world will end tonight

And the world will turn the other way (4x)

You poor soul come let me take you
in my arms tonight
it ain’t no way to end the world if you’re
paralyzed with fright
let me take away your fear
come stand with me and fight
as the dark sun falls and the world collapses
the world will end tonight

And the world will turn the other way (4x)

Can we see that it is dark now?
Or do we see nothing at all?
Can we just lay down and die now?
Or do we wait for the sky to fall?

But we walked through the shadow of the valley and the mist
and the mountains were covered with trees
as we walked on the mountain and the snow the sun shined
and the wind blew a gentle breeze

and it’s still cold….
