"The End" as written by and Matthew/james Tuck....
Your hair reminds me of a time when were we once were
Your fingernails that marked my back now rot in earth
The sheets we slept in blew away, and now the storm is over
The taste of you inside my mouth remains, but still I'm hearing

There's no love, everybody's crying
There's no truth, everyone's misguided

And now the end is here!
There's no more pills to swallow
The bitter taste I feel, won't lead me to tomorrow

Your scent reminds me of a place we used to go
The kisses placed upon my neck show signs of, no return!
The bed we fucked in, smells the same, and now the the stench is fading
The taste of you inside my mouth remains but still I'm hearing

There's no love, everybody's crying
There's no truth, everyone's misguided

And now the end is here!
There's no more pills, to swallow!
The bitter taste I feel, won't lead me to, tomorrow!

Cries for anger,
Lies for power
Fighting for nothing, is what you were born for
Cries for anger,
Lies for power
Fighting for nothing, is what you were born for

Ahh!
Yeah!
Cries for anger,
Lies for power
Fighting for nothing, is what you were born for
Cries for anger,
Lies for power
Fighting for nothing, is what you were born, for!

    General CommentA loved one, or girlfriend if you prefer, dies. He's having all these memories as he's committing suicide through an OD of probably painkillers or whatever "there's no more pills to swallow".

    But still, gotta love this song, reminiscing bout past relationships and whatever, we've all been at 'The End' at some point or another.

    General CommentIf you listen to the album in order, you can see the story being told.
    Her Voice resides: He seems like he's preparing to end a relationship, but can't seem to go through it because he loves her.
    Tears don't fall: He finds out about her being unfaithful and describes the pain he feels.
    4 word: Confronting his friend, who his girlfriend was unfaithful with.
    Suffocating under word of Sorrow: Describes being with her, even though he knows whats happens, and how he wants her to admit it.
    Hit the Floor: This describes him actually confronting her about it and attacking her, and leads into the next two songs
    All these things I hate: Describes how he doesn't like this situation, but she still constantly denies it
    Room 409: Describes him finding her at his apartment and him catching her cheating
    The Poison: Him killing her
    10 Years today: A flashback describing the friend who had cheated with his girlfriend killing himself.
    Cries in Vein: Describes his pain after remembering this, and how he looks to god for help, but doesn't receive any.
    Spit you Out: Describes him trying to fight his guilt about what happened and trying to rise above it
    The End: Describes him reflecting back on what happened as he commits suicide himself.

    It's an amazing album, and I love it when artists put more into it then just a few hits and a bunch of filler songs with no meaning.

    General CommentIm gonna have to agree with AshJ on this one. This song is obviously about the death or loss of a loved one and commiting suicide over them. When I first heard the song I really didnt understand it but then I lost my gf(no she didnt die) and i started thinking about suicide and as i sat in my dark room and listened to this song the meaning became clear to me. Anyway... I love this song just because of the fact that it so closely matches my life and the way i feel at the moment. and because its awsome.

    General CommentMy ex-boyfriend dedicated this song to me. Real sweetheart, huh? Anyway, I agree that he's commiting suicide, but I'm not positive that his girlfriend died. All of the things he said about her could just be him thinking about her and missing her. Very sexual song though.
