"This Is The End" as written by and Thiessen....
I can't keep a straight face and say this is not the end
Not if you want it its upon us and I wanna say it's sinking in

This may sound crazy but I want to come back home
That's it I said it now I'm sailing off
To Neverland and then Japan

So think real slow
Don't forget that yes is yes and no is no
About the way you want to go
'Cause I may forget the way to get back home
This is the end if you want it

You're not the first thing in my life I've loved and lost
Yeah I've thought worse things that I might be less
Inclined to merely just shrug off
I took the fire escape and made it out alive
Yeah I still burn from time to time but I've
A healing hand against my side

So think real slow
Don't forget that yes is yes and no is no
About the way you want to go
'Cause I may forget the way to get back home
This is the end if you want it
This is the end if you want it
And this is the end

    Song MeaningI am NOT the gossip type- I hate shows like Access Hollywood and TMZ for their celebrity worship-- BUT, when I heard these lyrics, the first thing I wondered was "Oh crud - did he split with that chick he was gonna marry?"

    General CommentThere are two things about this song I don't understand completely.

    One being the lines
    "I took the fire escape and made it out alive
    Yeah I still burn from time to time but I've a healing hand against my side"

    And the other being
    "You'll take me home
    Like my family did, my father did I know."

    What does he mean by those things?

    General CommentWhen i first heard the song i wasnt sure what he was meaning by the whole song itself. I thought he was talking about the end of the band itself. Its possible but idk anything about it...

    General CommentThe rest of the lyrics(If You Want It):

    You'll take me home
    Like my family did my father did I know
    You'll think real slow
    But don't forget the speed that I can go away
    Cause this is the end if you want it
    Yeah this is the end

    I've been convincing myself that I'm worthwhile
    Cause I'm worth what I'll convince myself to be
    I've been convincing myself that I'm worthwhile
    Cause I'm worth what I'll convince myself to be

    I met the devil and I stared her in the eyes
    Her hair had scales like silver serpents
    I a statue, stood there mesmerized

    I took the fire escape and made it out alive
    Yeah I still burn from time to time but I've a healing hand against my side

    Blisters on my feet I crawled back home
    Frozen from the sleet burned sand and stones
    Nourished back to life by life alone
    With one shake of the mane regain the throne



    whenever i hear this part, i get a little spooked:
    "I met the devil and I stared her in the eyes
    Her hair had scales like silver serpents
    I a statue, stood there mesmerized

    I took the fire escape and made it out alive
    Yeah I still burn from time to time but I've a healing hand against my side"

    i believe it's saying that the temptation of cheating was present and he resisted it. but ofcourse, one doesn't always get away unscathed.

    anyways, Jesus loves Matt. he made us worthwhile!
