"The Bitter End" as written by and Deryck Jason Whibley....
There's no doubt in my mind when it's over
What is done will be
You will find when life gets colder there's no sympathy
There's no point trying you can't escape the bitter end
Well who will greet you when you're at the bitter end

All your choices chosen you've got no say
Your decisions made
Face your consequences as your life begins to fade
As time keeps spinning closer to the bitter end
Well who will greet you when you're at the bitter end

Take a look at yourself as time keeps racing
Is all you've come to be
What you expected or are you still chasing possibilities
Cause all your prayers won't save you from the bitter end
Well who will greet you when you're at the bitter end

    General CommentAside from the rip-off, it's about how we'll all be punished at "the bitter end" because of whatever reasons.

    Also, I swear that second solo is done by a machine... just listen to it. And I've never heard or seen them play this song live. Probably because Dave can't really play it.

    actually, UK magazine Total Guitar released a dvd called "Meltdown" which featured Sum 41. In the video Dave plugged right in showed how the solo was played.

    General CommentIt's not made by a machine. I have a couple videos of them playing it live, including the solo.

    General CommentA few of their songs on this album remind me of other songs, but this song is Battery without a doubt. I'm not saying someone should sue them, but come on.
