"To the End" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
I've held the hand of God and I've sang the Devil's song
And when it comes my time no tears are gonna fall
But some will light the fire and some will mourn the one
Left longing for the ire of, of their departed son.

Oh lord have mercy thank God you're gone
Here's to the end, thank God you're gone.

They finally shoved you in the box they could never fit you in
An empty cell forever locked so much for best intentions.
But some will load the gun and some will hone the knife
Some will raise the fist as they recall your life.

Oh lord have mercy thank God you're gone
Here's to the end, thank God you're gone.

We've waited for so long, waited for so long
Thank god you're gone, you're gone

I've held the hand of God and I've sang the Devil's song
You'll never erase the past or regain what's lost

You're finally gone
Oh Lord have mercy thank God you're gone
Here's to the end, thank God you're gone.
Thank God you're gone
So far gone

    My InterpretationI think this song is specifically about Bin Laden. The album came out in January 2012 and this song seems to have been a late addition as the songs before and after merge well. Bin Laden was killed May 2011, and the band recorded the album Feb-May 2011, which would have been the correct time frame for writing and adding this song to the album late in the process. Clearly, the narrator has a negative opinion of the subject he's referring to, and that subject is dead, thus I don't think it would be about troops leaving Iraq, which only happened just before the album came out. LOG has said they did not want to be political on Resolution, but that was before recording, and I think the news of Bin Laden's death changed things. Given their cynicism of the American government apropos the war on terror and their suspicion that the government never wanted to get Bin Laden, it would have been a very significant piece of happy news for them.

    My InterpretationI take this is being more about the narrator (self) than a particular person. Sort of taken as a message of live your life to it's fullest and have no regrets when you die (the end).

    It seems in parts that there may be two voices (narrators) in the song, and that the second voice should celebrate their life in death (instead of mourn it).
