This is the end

Beautiful friend

This is the end

My only friend, the end

Of our elaborate plans, the end

Of everything that stands, the end

No safety or surprise, the end

I’ll never look into your eyes… Again

Can you picture what will be

So limitless and free

Desperately in need… Of some… Stranger’s hand

In a… Desperate land

Lost in a Roman… Wilderness of pain

And all the children are insane

All the children are insane

Waiting for the summer rain, yeah

There’s danger on the edge of town

Ride the King’s highway, baby

Weird scenes inside the gold mine

Ride the highway west, baby

Ride the snake, ride the snake

To the lake, the ancient lake, baby

The snake is long, seven miles

Ride the snake… He’s old, and his skin is cold

The west is the best

The west is the best

Get here, and we’ll do the rest

The blue bus is callin’ us

The blue bus is callin’ us

Driver, where you taken’ us

The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on

He took a face from the ancient gallery

And he walked on down the hall

He went into the room where his sister lived, and… Then he

Paid a visit to his brother, and then he

He walked on down the hall, and

And he came to a door… And he looked inside

Father, yes son, I want to kill you

Mother… I want to… Waaaaaa

C’mon baby,——— No “take a chance with us”

C’mon baby, take a chance with us

C’mon baby, take a chance with us

And meet me at the back of the blue bus

Doin’ a blue rock

On a blue bus

Doin’ a blue rock

C’mon, yeah

Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill

This is the end

Beautiful friend

This is the end

My only friend, the end

It hurts to set you free

But you’ll never follow me

The end of laughter and soft lies

The end of nights we tried to die

This is the end
