I hereby declare the beginning of the end
The end of the show
If I were you, I’d cut my losses
Grab my stuff and go
For mistakes will be made
Your attention will fade
And I’ll probably play too long
Maybe I should just end with this song

But I hereby declare the beginning of the end
The end of the day
Even though the sun hasn’t really risen yet
There’s nothing new to say
And why get out of bed
When everything’s been said?
Yes, why go to bed at all
At the end of the day
The end of the show
The beginning of the end?

“Oh what can be worth doin’
In this age of ugly ruin?”
Someone is bound to complain
“And what can be worth thinking
When the atmosphere is shrinking
And stupid songs keep running through my brain?”

So I hereby declare the beginning of the end
The end of the world
Everything’s falling apart for me tonight
So why bother with a rhyme that’s just too difficult to think of?
I’ve seen it in the signs
It’s the end of the line
Even though the line has barely begun
It’s the end of the world
The end of the show
The beginning of the end

“Oh what can be worth writing
When it isn’t that exciting?”
Someone is bound to complain
“And what can be worth trying
When I’m far too busy dying
And stupid songs keep running through my brain?”

So I hereby declare the beginning of the end
The end of this song
I cried like Donald Fagen when I wrote this
So go ahead and sue me if I play too long
But my back is to the wall
And I’m tired of the fight
Let’s let apathy win tonight
If this is the beginning
It’s only the beginning of the end
Beginning of the end
Yes, my face is on the floor again
I’m dizzy from the height
Let’s let entropy win tonight
If this is the beginning
It’s only the beginning
Of the end
