"The End" as written by and Graham Edwards Lauren Christy....
I gave my life to see this through
Laid new ground before you
One more second to redeem myself
One more second, let the tension swell for me

There is no telling after this
Just how far the fall is
One more second 'fore the cord is cut
One more second to be dead enough for you

Run to the mercy inside
Oh sacred hands
There in the place where I died
And you began

I need your affirmation
I lay my head, but I can't sleep
You are the end for me
I found my consolation
I made my peace, but I can't leave
You are the end for me

I feel my time begin to wane
No more try in vain now
One more second for a peace of mind
Once more second till the end of time for you

Run to the mercy inside
Oh sacred hands
There in the place where I died
And you began

I need your affirmation
I lay my head, but I can't sleep
You are the end for me
I found my consolation
I made my peace, but I can't leave
You are the end for me

Run to the mercy inside
Oh sacred hands
There in the place where I died
And you began

I need your affirmation
I lay my head, but I can't sleep
You are the end for me
I found my consolation
I made my peace, but I can't leave
You are the end for me
I need your affirmation
I lay my head, but I can't sleep
You are the end for me
I found my consolation
I made my peace, but I can't leave
You are the end for me (You are the end)

    Ryan Clark:
    “I wrote this song during the first few months of parenthood – learning how to keep a new human alive, stressing over every tiny thing, not being able to sleep out of fear that she’d stop breathing. I’d get up several times a night just to stare at her chest to make sure her lungs were pumping. I needed that consolation at least half a dozen times before I could sleep at all. It’s truly unreal the amount of concern a child introduces into your life. Ironically, each difficult step seems like nothing in hindsight.

    In compiling the lyrics for the album artwork, I noticed that sleep is a common theme throughout this record. I can’t help but think it’s because my sleep schedule as a first-time father was turned upside down."
