"In The End" as written by Martin Johnson, John Feldmann, Andy Biersack, Ashley Purdy, Jacob Pitts and Jeremy Ferguson....
In the end, as we fade into the night (whoa!)
Who will tell the story of your life?
In the end, as my soul's laid to rest
What is left of my body?
Or am I just a shell?
I have fought
And with flesh and blood, I commanded an army
Through it all
I have given my heart for a moment of glory

In the end, as you fade into the night (whoa!)
Who will tell the story of your life? (Whoa!)
And who will remember your last goodbye? (Whoa!)
'Cause it's the end and I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid to die

I'm not afraid!
I'm not afraid to die!

Born a saint
Though, with every sin I still wanna be holy
I will live, again
Who we are isn't how we live
We are more than our bodies
If I fall, I will rise back up and relive my glory

In the end, as we fade into the night (whoa!)
Who will tell the story of your life? (Whoa!)
And who will remember your last goodbye? (Whoa!)
'Cause it's the end and I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid to die

In the end, as you fade into the night (whoa!)
Who will tell the story of your life? (Whoa!)
And who will remember your last goodbye? (Whoa!)
'Cause it's the end, and I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid to die

Who will remember this last goodbye? (Whoa!)
'Cause it's the end, and I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid to die

I'm not afraid!
I'm not afraid to die!
Not afraid!
I'm not afraid to die!

    My InterpretationThis song holds a lot of meaning for me. It's really hard to explain. People generally aren't afraid to die. They are more afraid that they won't be known when they do. So who would remember their last words? They are afraid of dying alone with no one there. Maybe it's a song about fulfilling accomplishments before you die. Or maybe about not being single when you do.

    My InterpretationI'm sorry if you disagree, but I believe this song is actually about being ready for anything. "I'm not afraid to die" makes me feel like you should be prepared for the impossible-no matter hoe far-fetched it may seem.

    Andy on in the end
    "I was going through the death of my grandfather at the time. I was very close to him and he was someone I grew up with, both of my parents worked full time. Every day I would go to his house after school and he formed me into the man that I became." The song is about Andy Beirsack's view of heaven of "If nothing else, heaven is the legacy for the people around you. If there is a Heaven that's wonderful but you can't deny that those people telling the story after you've lived it they are the ones creating that afterlife, that legacy that you were someone of important someone of substance.

    My OpinionI feel this song is about living your life to it's fullest no matter what. Being able to move on from this life without regret or sorrow of things left undone and leaving your mark on the world. As mortals we will all die at some time, but our legacies will live on through our friends, family, acquaintances & history. All the people you have left an impression on, what story will they tell of your life?

    My InterpretationI heard this thought it as a really heavy song. I think this song is about being on the break of suicide. "Who will remember this last goodbye" "I'm not afraid to day" kind of gave me this isea

    My InterpretationThe way i see it, this song is asking you what you'll so with youre life. Who will tell the story of your life? Who will remember your last goodbye? It makes me wonder who's going to remember me when im gone.

    General Commenti think this song is about believing in heaven.
    the writer is trying to convince himself he does/ imagening what it was like if he did.

    My OpinionThis is just my thought... so ya. I think that the song is about a person who is considering being religious, and what it would be like. This person is saying that "in the end" he is not afraid to die because he knows that heaven is waiting for him. It could also mean that this person does not want to die without being remembered. He/ she wants someone to remember them when they die.

    My OpinionAfter seeing this song live, and listening to it loads, my idea is that this song is about suicide, and its his way of saying "im not afraid to die" and creating an image of his Heaven, so he thinks he will be safer.
