"End Of The World" as written by Chester Charles Bennington, Amir Davidson, Ryan Christopher Shuck and Anthony Valcic....
When you read the news
Does it make you sick?
Murder, money, politics
Gonna fill you up
Get your bullshit fix
It's the end of the world
Grab your crucifix
And fall to your knees
And beg God please
Have mercy on me (Mercy!)

When you turn on the TV
What do you get?
Sex, lies, scandal, violence
Like the end of a gun
Pressed against your lips
It's the end of the world
Grab your crucifix
And fall to your knees
And beg God please
Have mercy on me

When you can't buy gas
And you can't pay rent
And what you've got left
Is the Government's
No win
No future
No benefit
It's the end of the world
Grab your crucifix
And fall to your knees
And beg God please
Have mercy on me

Coming out of the hypocrisy
Coming out of the bureaucracy
Coming in to lead a war
They're a shame

You can ignore what you cannot see
You can believe in a lie
You can run away from anything
Until you open your eyes

No rest for the wicked
Yeah they never quit
Watchin', waiting
For the next trick
We won't be celebrating
When the atom's split
It's the end of the world
Grab your crucifix
And fall to your knees
And beg god please
Have mercy on me

Coming out of the hypocrisy
Coming out of the bureaucracy
Coming in to lead a war
They're a shame

You can ignore what you cannot see
You can believe in a lie
You can run away from anything
Until you open your eyes

Coming out of the hypocrisy
Coming out of the bureaucracy
Coming in to lead a war
They're a shame

    General CommentIts missing a few parts because I cannot make out the synth voice. The fourth verse maybe a little wrong as well. If you know the proper lyrics, please post them.

    My InterpretationThese should be close to correct:

    When you read the news does it make you sick?
    Murder, money, politics
    Gonna fill you up, get your bullshit fix
    It's the end of the world
    Grab your crucifix and fall to your knees
    And beg God please have mercy on me

    When you turn on the TV, what do you get?
    Sex, lies, scandal, violence
    Like the end of a gun pressed against your lips
    It's the end of the world
    Grab your crucifix and fall to your knees
    And beg God please have mercy on me

    When you can't buy gas and you can't pay rent
    And what you've got left is the government's
    No win, no future, no benefit
    It's the end of the world
    Grab your crucifix and fall to your knees
    And beg God please have mercy on me

    Coming out of the hypocrisy
    Coming out of the bureaucracy
    Coming in to lead a war
    They're a shame!

    You can ignore what you cannot see
    You can believe in a lie
    You can runaway from anything
    Until you open your eyes

    No rest for the wicked, yeah they never quit
    Watching, waiting for the next trick
    We won't be celebrating when the atom's split
    It's the end of the world
    Grab your crucifix and fall to your knees
    And beg God please have mercy on me

    Coming out of the hypocrisy
    Coming out of the bureaucracy
    Coming in to lead a war
    They're a shame!

    You can ignore what you cannot see
    You can believe in a lie
    You can runaway from anything
    Until you open your eyes

    Coming out of the hypocrisy
    Coming out of the bureaucracy
    Coming in to lead a war
    They're a shame!

    Your lyrics were pretty close to correct. I just wanna say, I absolutely frickin' LOVE this song! In my opinion, best song on the album. It's amazingly blunt and in your face, tackling issues that no one wants to talk about. I love all the verses and the beat is insane. If you don't like this song, you're crazy! Thanks for posting :)

    General CommentThe loop sounds a bit ripped off of Even Better Then The Real Thing by U2, but otherwise I like this one.
