"Last One in the World" as written by Mark Lanegan and Mike Johnson....
Goodbye my friend I hate to see you go
You brought me down the stars
The last one in the world
I hear you cry
But let's not waste this night
The last one in the world

Within your lonely room
I hear you whisper see you soon
I sense a dying spark
I watch you falling through the dark

Goodbye my friend, thank you for the dream
The last one in the world
I hear you cry
But let's not waste this night
The last one in the world

And I listen to you call
I hardly hear you at all
I walk the quiet night
Watch the river rolling by

The last one in the world [Repeat x4]

    General CommentI believe this song is about Layne Staley and his deteriorating condition and transition into a recluse. Mark and he were great friends and roommates for a while. Allegedly, he sang this song at Layne's funeral. Pretty prophetic song.
