In the End

Moving toward eternity
Signing all the books
It’s a long path to tread
Slipping in the back door
Tying up loose ends
before the sun sets again
Searching for answers
Sifting through the ashes
as night descends
Falling forever
Screaming through the darkness
until pain disappears

In the end
alarms and lights are flashing
until everything dims
In the end
people stand around
and pretend to be at peace

But nothing is over

Fighting back the tears
Fending off the years
It’s a long road to pass
Pushing away finality
Adding up the moments
as stars appear
Wishing for yesterday
Preparing for tomorrow
as the curtain falls
Drifting in the ether
Orbiting the earth
as waves lap the shore

In the end
reality is spiraling
out of control
In the end
they all face the demons
that led them here

But nothing is over

In the end
no one is prepared
for the final beat
When everything is over
and nothing is over

In the end
when you reach the end
the world turns on
and nothing is over

Nothing is over
