When the end is getting closer
And the earth has burned the sky
Now repent 'cause it's all over
Just let me die

Here's the massacre
A mausoleum fit for me
Lived a hundred years,
A hundred years I didn't see
Gave all my hope away
Isn't any left for me?
Bombs are splitting atoms
What can the future bring?
We can fill a million choirs
And wait till children sing
We can walk a million miles
And end up in the sea
And our lungs just keep filling
And lying when we breathe
The world's filled with liars
Liars like me
And I look at my child
It's finite, this feeling
Eyes blue like the sky
I see all of this meaning
I reach up to God and ask if I'm dreaming
I'm so sorry I don't have those things that you're needing
And darling, a kiss
Kiss me I'm leaving

When the end is getting closer
And the earth has burned the sky
Now repent 'cause it's all over
Just let me die

As my body lies here broken
And I'm carried to the light
Now my heart is finally open
So just let me die

When the end is getting closer
And the earth has burned the sky
Now repent 'cause it's all over
Just let me die

Here's the massacre
A mausoleum fit for me
Lived a hundred years,
A hundred years I didn't see
Gave all my hope away
Isn't any left for me?
Bombs are splitting atoms
What can the future bring?
We can fill a million choirs
And wait till children sing
We can walk a million miles
And end up in the sea
And our lungs just keep filling
And lying when we breathe
The world's filled with liars
Liars like me
And I look at my child
It's finite, this feeling
Eyes blue like the sky
I see all of this meaning
I reach up to God and ask if I'm dreaming
I'm so sorry I don't have those things that you're needing
And darling, a kiss
Kiss me I'm leaving

When the end is getting closer
And the earth has burned the sky
Now repent 'cause it's all over
Just let me die

As my body lies here broken
And I'm carried to the light
Now my heart is finally open
Just let me die
