"End Of Me" as written by Johnny Lee Andrews and Eicca Toppinen....
Rosaries
Left under the mattress of the memories
Who could bear the witness
As you slip into oblivion,
Use it like a weapon
Am I left to bleed
Waiting for the moment when you've had your fun
A loaded gun

Take away your broken misery,
I can't wait to erase your memory
This love, this love is gonna be the end of me
Everything I gave is wasted,
I'm the one who suffocated
This love, this love is gonna be the end of me

Can't resist poisoning the message
Just a narcissist trapped inside the wreckage
And the sympathy I had is gone
Deadened by the ceremony
Drama queen,
Stand behind your empire
As your kingdom falls, all because

Take away your broken misery,
I can't wait to erase your memory
This love, this love is gonna be the end of me.
Everything I gave is wasted,
I'm the one who suffocated
This love, this love is gonna be the end of me

Your rescue, my undo
I'm not the one to save you
I'm empty completely
I'm drowning in your shadow

Take away your broken misery,
I can't wait to erase your memory
This love, this love is gonna be the end of me.
Everything I gave is wasted,
I'm the one who suffocated
This love, this love is gonna be the end of

Cant chase away your ghost,
Inside it only grows
Nothing left but misery
This will be the end of me
All the shit that you created,
All the scars you celebrated
Couldn't take away your pain
Couldn't resurrect your gain
This love will be the end of me,
This love will be the end.

    General CommentI can't believe nobody has commented yet...I love this song!!

    Also, as far as lyrics are concerned, I believe it's "I can't wait to erase your memory" instead of "I dont want to waste your memory"

    General CommentLooks like a girl who plays with his heart and mind.
    Then, "Suffocated" because of this, he decides to leave her...

    ...or at least that what he dreams (I watched a part of Apocalyptica's video where Eicca Toppinen throws a girl directly on the floor, like a dream of revenge).

    The video of this song will be officially released on Apocalyptica.com next Friday, July the 2nd.

    Song MeaningI have experienced what the singer is going through. The person he's singing about is a narcissist and a drama queen who pulls him into her world. She suffocates him by taking away his very being, thus he walks in her shadow. She uses him only for the purpose of satisfying her insatiable need for attention. She has reflected her inner emptiness onto him to leave him feeling empty as well. This broken woman, for whom he once had sympathy, is driving him away; for she is trapped inside the wreckage of her deep misery and can offer him nothing in return for his love. She stands behind her mask of narcissism as her world falls all around her. She has no empathy for him or anybody else, thus she drives all who love her away. There is nothing the man can do to save her, for all he's tried to do has been wasted and he has no choice but to leave her...otherwise "it will be the end" for him.

    My InterpretationPerfectly interpreted "rocknow"....i agree completely, there's a U2 line that goes "A victim or a vampire, depends on who is around" which summarises the song and your intepretation.

    I have also experienced loving and giving to a person that was only capable of taking and populating her narcisstic world without giving back. And you always believe that you just need to give a little more for her to turn the corner, but her world never fills, it's a bottomless pit that eventually swallows all those around her. The singer is almost there, but is about break free "I'm not the one to save you...", which is the most difficult thing for a man to say to a woman...but really understandable once you've gone thru this...

    Lyric CorrectionHey all, don't post much, but love this song and just wanted say that the line is actually "I can't always erase your memory" instead of "I can't wait to erase your memory." Slight difference, kind of hard to tell but if you watch Gavin's lips in the music video it becomes quite clear. I think it's more poetic and it rolls off the tongue better to boot. Much love, y'all!
