"End of Days" as written by Matthew Tuck, Jason James, Michael Kieron Paget and Michael David Thomas....
We're wasting precious time
The clock is ticking
Can you hear the countdown
With every hour
Give me the power
I need the strength to carry on
On and on

No more I care to live
When I'm just born to die
We're all born to die
Born to die [x2]

Never before, never again
Behold this travesty
Never before, never again
Behold adversary [x2]

Befriend my enemies
My pulse is racing
I can hear my heart beat
Is this the last time
You get to be mine
I lack the will to carry on
On and on

No more I care to live
When I'm just born to die
We're all born to die
Born to die [x2]

Never before, never again
Behold this travesty
Never before, never again
Behold adversary [x2]

No more sorrows, no tomorrow's
I've never felt alive before

With every hour
Give me the power
I need the strength to carry on
On and on

No more I care to live
When I'm just born to die
We're all born to die
Born to die [x3]

No more I care to live
When I'm just born to die
Born to die

To die [x3]

    General CommentI heard something on Youtube where they were talking about the new CD and playing parts of the songs and Matt said it was about, if I remember correctly, what would if you had 24 hours to live or something like that. BTW my favorite song off the CD so far.

    General CommentI tend to agree with the previous statement - it is my favourite song off the new CD also. Great mix of screaming and singing, and I just had to put the lyrics to it up.

    I love the NEVER BEFORE, NEVER AGAIN bit especially!

    Your interpretation of the song sounds pretty accurate to me Anterior. This belief of ours is justified by the start of the song: "We’re wasting precious time, the clock is ticking can you hear the countdown?" Also, the words "NO SORROW, NO TOMORROW" emphasise that this appears to be the last day of life.

    Sounds to me like the reckoning that life is finite, and that it doesn't matter what happens, and to make the most of the time you have left, as it is running out quickly. "No more I care to live when I’m just born to die."

    And the chorus "Never before, never again. Behold this travesty. Never before, never again. Behold adversary," Translates to 'Never before, never again, behold this ||MOCKERY/ FARCE/ CHARADE / PARODY / TAKE OFF, etc|| Never before, never again behold ||YOUR CHALLENGER/ YOUR OPPONENT/ YOUR RIVAL, etc.|| These are words used instead of Travesty and Adversary, for those who arent sure.

    I also believe that the meaning of these well chosen words is to "Never before, never again" underestimate or make a mockery or a fool of your closest and oldest rival, death.

    Thanks Anterior for the general meaning of the song, that of what you would do if you had just ONE DAY left to live. Sounds good to me, and I hope the nonsense I just blabbed on about helps everyone to expand the basic meaning of this great song by BFMV.

    Thanks!
