"The End" as written by and Niclas Ingmar Engelin Howard Benson....
I got a new kind of fear
Something you don't wanna view
There's this path that I can see
It leads straight to misery
We can't undo what we have done
Just face what's up ahead
We fight and we stumble
The fuse is lit, you better run now

I can't tell you what to do
This crossroad is your own
But I know what we'll become
We'll be outlaws on the run

Do you think about the end?
The words you say with your last breath and the emptiness in space
Do you think about the end? (That slow last breath of air)
The words you say with your last breath and the emptiness in space

What if I say to you
Let's leave this earth for a while
A perspective from the hollow
And the wheel we can't control

I can't tell you what to do
This crossroad is your own
But I know what we'll become
We'll be outlaws on the run

Do you think about the end?
The words you say with your last breath and the emptiness in space
Do you think about the end? (That slow last breath of air)
The words you say with your last breath and the emptiness in space
And the emptiness in space
And the emptiness in space

When we were young
Was this the dream we had?
We're celebrating nothing
We need to find our way back

When we were young
Was this the dream we had?
We're celebrating nothing
We need to find our way back

When we were young
Was this the dream we had?
We're celebrating nothing
We need to find our way back

I can't tell you what to do
This crossroad is your own
But I know what we'll become
We'll be outlaws on the run

Do you think about the end?
The words you say with your last breath and the emptiness in space
Do you think about the end? (That slow last breath of air)
The words you say with your last breath and the emptiness in space

    My InterpretationContemplation of the life you have lived and what lies ahead for us all in the end (death). It is questioning whether you are happy with your life, and if your end (death) was to arrive tomorrow / soon would you have regrets (if so perhaps you need to address them now, before it is too late).

    Pretty of references to death through the song. Of course the title "the end" (as the ultimate end is death). Mentions of "paths" and "crossroads" which are used in literacy to reference life choices that lead us to the end (death).
