I could feel it beneath my feet
My heart pounding along with the beat
I could hear the terrifying rumble
Like all the rocks were about to crumble.
Sweat was dribbling from my head
My eyes closed like I was dead
The Earth was splitting, I was crying
I honestly felt like I was dying.
I could hear the town scream
We could make it through this like a team
I could feel the earthquake at a bend
But was this really just the end ...
