"The End" as written by Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson, Robert G. Bourdon, Chester Charles Bennington and Joseph Hahn....
Just when you thought it was over,
Sky turned black and we all fell to earth,
Dead in our tracks, we were frozen in fact.
Choking to breath then came the seas,
Wash away impurities, wash away all I couldnt be

Everyone will be washed away
Drowning in the hell that we made
I cannot believe that I have insomnia
Everyone will be washed away, drowning in the hell that we made,
I cannot believe that I have insomnia.

Standing at the tall wall,
Breathing in the chaos behold,
None will be forout its all toppling down
Cities will sink none could believe,
Wash away impurities, wash away all I couldnt be.

Everyone will be washed away,
Drowning in the hell that we made,
I cannot believe that I have insomnia,
Everyone will be washed away, drowning in the hell that we made,
I cannot believe that I have insomnia.

Save me, save me from what will make up this world, save us, save us from the incraveous from ourselves,
Save me, save me from what will make up this world.

Just when you thought it was over,
The sky turned black and we all fell to (fell to)

Everyone will be washed away,
Drowning in the hell that we made,
I cannot believe that I have insomnia,
Everyone will be washed away, drowning in the hell that we made,
I cannot believe that I have insomnia.

    General CommentI'm sorry you felt like you had to try and make yourself "Stand out" Shadow. Stay in school kid.
    This song is badass. And for Matt to only be like 19? That man is crazy insane with skill.

    General CommentThe song is the best on the album.

    I think it means that we have all screwed up, all sinned, and that one day everything will be erased and gone.

    The singer is then asking for forgiveness for his sins.

    General Commentat the starting when he says "just when u thought it was over the sky turned black and we all fell to Earth
    dead in our tracks we were frozen in fact shooken to breath then came the seas wash away impurities wash away all that couldnt be" hes sayin after the battle with rome in bible times god flooded the earth as a sign to tell noah to build and ark and when he says " everyone will be washed away drowning in the hell that we made i cannot believe that our end is so near" he's sayin hes scared of death that the rain and seas were rising and that if no one saved them theyd die and the hell part is war is hell and they created a world of anger hate and war and the whole song is sayin weve sinned and he'll be washing them away
