"Closer to the End" as written by and Daniel Romer-friedman....
She climbs into her padded room
Holds the darkness like her groom
And when she pushes through the gloom
She dances slowly

She tries the officer
But no one seems as off as her
And no one even offers her
The chance to tell them

We're getting closer, closer and closer
We're getting closer to the end
And as you hold her, it's getting colder
We're getting closer to the end

Now the end has just begun

She remembers how it used to be
At holidays beneath the trees
At picnics with her family
She danced so slowly

But now away she goes
'Cause she's the only one who knows
The darkness comes and then it grows
She tries to tell them

We're getting closer, closer and closer
We're getting closer to the end
And as you hold her, it's getting colder
We're getting closer to the end

Now the end has just begun

And when the stars begin to darken
They'll tell us that it's only rain
And when the sun begins to grow
They'll tell us everything's the same

But this doesn't feel the same
No, I don't feel the same
This doesn't feel the same
It certainly doesn't

She screams when she can feel it break
The sand, it storms - the earth, it quakes
The fire streams feed fire lakes
She tried to tell them

We're getting closer, closer and closer
We're getting closer to the end
And as you hold her, it's getting colder
We're getting closer to the end

Now the end has just begun

We're getting closer, closer and closer
We're getting closer to the end
And as you hold her, it's getting colder
We're getting closer to the end

Now the end has just begun
