Songfacts®:

  • This Americana-influenced ballad about the end of days in the Perry siblings' hometown was inspired by their love for Southern Gothic literature. Neil Perry told The Boot: "Like Flannery O'Connor, William Faulkner, we definitely wrote one song in particular to kind of honor that style of writing that we love. It's the very last song of the album, called 'End of Time,' and it's kind of our take on what the south would look like at the end of the world."
