"End of the World" as written by and Aviv Geffen....
Don't you forget what I've told you
So many years
We are hopeless and slaves to our fears
We're an accident called human beings

Don't be angry for loving the baby
And say it's unreal
So many lives turned to salt
Like roses who're hiding their thorns

It's the end of the world
The end of the world
It's a prison for dreams and for hopes
And still we believe there is God
It's the end of the world
The end of the world
We're dead but pretend we're alive
Full of ignorance, fools in disguise

In your room doing nothing
But staring at flickering screens
Streets are empty, but still you can hear
Joy of children turning to tears

Disease hides around every corner
Quiet, lay still
Wait for a moment to hear
We forgot what is touch, what to feel

It's the end of the world
The end of the world
It's a prison for dreams and for hopes
And still we believe there is God
It's the end of the world
The end of the world
We're dead but pretend we're alive
Full of ignorance, fools in disguise

Take this pill, it will make you feel dizzy
And then give you wings
Soon, boy, you'll fall into sleep
Without nightmares, without any fears

If you wake up in hell or in heaven
Tell the angels we're here
Waiting below for a dream
Here in the garden of sin

It's the end of the world
The end of the world
It's a prison for dreams and for hopes
And still we believe there is God
It's the end of the world
The end of the world
We're dead but pretend we're alive
Full of ignorance, fools in disguise

    General CommentA very beautiful Song! The best Blackfield-song so far. I think we should all live our lifes with more happieness and maybe passion. And I think this is what they want to express with this song... (If I have a bad english please forgive me, I'm from germany ;)

    General CommentActually, this song is a translation and was written by Aviv Gefen who is an Israely that's working with blackfield. he is a musical genius, but a very pessimistic peron and so is his songs.. for me, its about being too optimistic, about not seeing the reality as it is - we dont want too see all the pain because it hearts too much, but that's what makes us blind, we are fooling ourselves - "Full of ignorance, fools in disguise", and by the time we wiil realize it, it will be too late.
    there's so much to say about the meanning of this song but i want to translate just one verse too demostrate what i mean
    "so take the pill that will make you fly
    far away from this place
    when thay'll find you you'll be dead
    and they will write that you were silent
    if the dead coult talk - what would you say?
    you would scream at everyone
    look - it's the end of the world"

    General Comment"Tell the angels we're here" - not "till the end you're still here". Great, great, morbid song. Reflects exactly my view of the way things are.

    General CommentI actually find the original Hebrew version of this song to be better. Look it up.

    General CommentI'm guessing that this song is about someone who has lost hope in the world, and sees it for the pit of corruption that it is. This leads them to ending their lives through ODing on pills.

    Song Meaningin the context of hope. it's the end of the world. the shitty things about we as human beings that collectively condensed. It's about most unhealthy things. Hey, its the end of the world already!

    So I think what was left is to inspire hope.

    General CommentI take this song (sad, gloomy and, yet, terrific) to mean a deep sadness and confusion for, literally, the loss of an unborn child due, maybe, to an abortion ("Don't be angry for loving the baby/And say it's unreal/So many lives turned to salt/Like roses who're hiding their thorns") whom the singer mourn before someone just a little insensitive. From there, the song displays the whole bunch of the singer's depressing, dreary feelings, and his growing incapacity for feeling and touching, together with his couple, whomever that might be. Still, the guy's able to rationalize and dopped himself--a substitute for loving and melancholy--the emotional ordeal he's/they're passing through, although we all know that there's no much hope: it's the end of the world.
