The end of the world - Laurie anderson

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome back to London Laurie Anderson.

 

Ooooaaaah!

 

Ooooaaaah!

 

Hi. This evening I'll be reading from a book

I just finished and since a lot of it is about the future

 

I'm going to start more or less on the last page

 

And tell you about my grandmother

 

Now she was a Southern Baptist Holy Ruler

 

And she had a very clear idea about the future

 

And of how the world would end

 

In fire

In fire

 

Like in Revelations

Like in Revelations

 

And when I was ten my grandmother told me

The world would end in a year

 

So I spent the whole year praying and reading the Bible

 

And alienating all my friends and relatives

 

And finally the big day came

 

And absolutely nothing happened. Just another day

 

Ooooaaaah

 

Now my grandmother was a missionary

 

And she had heard that the largest religion in the world was Buddhism

 

So she decided to go to Japan to convert Buddhists

 

And to inform them about the end of the world

And to inform them about the end of the world

 

And she didn't speak Japanese

 

So she tried to convert them with a combination of

Hand gestures, sign language and hymns, in English

 

Ooooaaaah

 

The Japanese had absolutely no idea what she was trying to get at

 

And when she got back to the United States

 

She was still talking about the end of the world

 

And I remember the day she died

 

She was very excited.

 

She was like a small bird perched on the edge of her bed

Near the window in the hospital

 

Waiting to die

 

And she was wearing these pink nightgowns

 

And combing her hair so she'd look pretty for the big moment

When Christ came to get her

 

Ooooaaaah

 

And she wasn't afraid but then

Just at the very last minute something happened that changed everything

 

Because suddenly, at the very last minute she panicked.

 

After a whole life of praying and predicting the end of the world, she panicked

 

And she panicked because she couldn't decide whether or not to wear a hat

 

Ooooaaaah

 

And so when she died she went into the future in a panic

 

With absolutely no idea of what would be next
