"End of Time" as written by and David Albert Wyndorf....
Someone tell those slobs that they got it wrong
They screwed us good and gave the whole circus away
Venus warm my bed ‘cause I’m coming home, now
I’m crashing the ship and just walking away
Somebody told me once that you were deeper than darkness
A shining face on a body that could send me to war
Naked flesh in the heart of a nuclear sunrise, baby
Drain that lizard’s tank until there ain’t anymore
Throw my burned out head in a lake of fire
I’ll satisfy my soul on the other side
Pump me till I’m gone and I can’t get back
I’ll smoke you fuckers out at the end of time
I saw this girl, once... her hair was on fire
Her eyes like stars
She’s never left my mind
A planet bird singing her phoenix song
Electric children’s voices at the end of time
Somebody told me once that you were deeper than darkness
A shining face on a body that could send me to war
Naked flesh in the heart of a nuclear sunrise, baby
Drain that lizard’s tank until there ain’t anymore
Throw my burned out head in a lake of fire
I’ll satisfy my soul on the other side
Pump me till I’m gone and I can’t get back
I’ll smoke you fuckers out at the end of time
Wash my tired brain in an acid bath
Fuck me till I’m dead and I can’t get back
I’ll satisfy my soul on the other side
and smoke my baby out at the end of time

    General Comment"Someone tell those slobs that they got it wrong
    They screwed us good and gave the whole circus away

    The person in the song sees the world as an absurd and somewhat ugly place. He doesn't have a very high opinion of mankind, referring to mankind as "slobs and giving the whole circus away."

    "Venus warm my bed ‘cause I’m coming home, now
    I’m crashing the ship and just walking away"

    He knows his behaviour is dangerous and self-destructive, but there is a sort of calming satisfaction he gets out of it. For him the idea of oblivion has peacefulness to it. It's an escape from his feelings of discontent.

    "Somebody told me once that you were deeper than darkness
    A shining face on a body that could send me to war
    Naked flesh in the heart of a nuclear sunrise, baby
    Drain that lizard’s tank until there ain’t anymore"

    Here he is speaking about a lover who he sees as "deeper than darkness," which is why he drawn to her, but to him she is just another distraction.

    "Throw my burned out head in a lake of fire
    I’ll satisfy my soul on the other side"

    Self-destruction and discontent with life again. He will be satisfied in oblivion.

    Pump me till I’m gone and I can’t get back
    I’ll smoke you fuckers out at the end of time"

    Distraction, self-destruction, and resentment for mankind again.

    "A planet bird singing her phoenix song
    Electric children’s voices at the end of time
    Somebody told me once that you were deeper than darkness
    A shining face on a body that could send me to war
    Naked flesh in the heart of a nuclear sunrise, baby
    Drain that lizard’s tank until there ain’t anymore"

    Another lover, same as other. Another distraction. The repetition implies that he is trapped in this cycle of self-destruction and distractions.

    "Throw my burned out head in a lake of fire
    I’ll satisfy my soul on the other side
    Pump me till I’m gone and I can’t get back
    I’ll smoke you fuckers out at the end of time
    Wash my tired brain in an acid bath
    Fuck me till I’m dead and I can’t get back"

    Self-destruction, and resentment for mankind again.

    "I’ll satisfy my soul on the other side
    and smoke my baby out at the end of time"

    Here he seems to be talking about someone of importance and not just another distraction like the others because he refers to her as "his baby," but for some reason they aren't together.

    And if he could just "smoke her out" after he's achieved that peaceful oblivion then his soul would be satisfied, which is just more self-destruction because he knows this is an impossibility because both of these things are mutually exclusive.
