"Preaching The End of The World" as written by and Chris Cornell....
Hello, I know there's someone out there who can understand
And who's feeling the same way as me
I'm twenty-four and I've got everything to live for
But I know now that it wasn't meant to be
'Cause all has been lost and all has been won
And there's nothing left for us to save
But now I know that I don't want to be alone today
So if you find that you've been feeling just the same

Call me now it's alright
It's just the end of the world
You need a friend in the world
'Cause you can't hide
So call and I'll get right back
If your intentions are pure
I'm seeking a friend for the end of the world

I've got a photograph I'll send it off today
And you will see that I am perfectly sane
Not for a lifetime or forever and a day
'Cause we know now that just won't be the case

Call me now it's alright
It's just the end of the world
You need a friend in the world
'Cause you can't hide
So call and I'll get right back
If your intentions are pure
I'm seeking a friend for the end of the world

There will be no commitment and no confessions
And no little secrets to keep
No little children or houses with roses
Just the End of the world and me
'Cause all has been gone and all has been done
And there's nothing left for us to say
But we could be together as they blow it all away
And we can share in every moment as it breaks

Call me now it's alright
It's just the end of the world
You need a friend in the world
'Cause you can't hide
So call and I'll get right back
If your intentions are pure
I'm seeking a friend for the end of the world

Call me now it's alright
It's just the end of the world
You need a friend in the world
'Cause you can't hide
So call and I'll get right back
If your intentions are pure
I'm seeking a friend for the end of the world

    General CommentHe's putting out an advertisement of sorts-the world is going to end and I'm all by myself.I don't know,because he's been content with being a loner until that point,or maybe he can't reach his friends,or something like that.So he's looking for a person that he can be with while the world ends.Because who wants to be on their own while the world is ending?And he talks about the kind of relationship he says he can have with that person.There will be no commitment or confessions,no sharing secrets.All he has to offer is his company while the world is ending.So he says,if there's someone out there who is also friendless and seeking company,they can call on him.And the cool thing about their relationship is that although there will be no intimate conversations and so on,there's an unspoken kinship of sorts between them and they're glad that they can be there for each other,and relieved to have found a friend to be with during this hard time,and that's what makes their relationship work.And while the world gets blown up,etc. they can find solace in the fact that at least they're not alone,and spend your final,breaking moments with a friend.
