Now come one come all to this tragic affair Wipe off that makeup, what's in is despair So throw on the black dress, mix in with the lot You might wake up and notice you're someone you're not
If you look in the mirror and don't like what you see You can find out firsthand what it's like to be me So gather 'round piggies and kiss this goodbye I'd encourage your smiles I'll expect you won't cry
Another contusion, my funeral jag Here's my resignation, I'll serve it in drag You've got front row seats to the penitence ball When I grow up I want to be nothing at all
I said yeah, yeah I said yeah, yeah
Come on, come on, come on I said (Save me) get me the hell out of here (Save me) too young to die and my dear (You can't) if you can hear me just walk away and (Take me)
Caty from PennsylvaniaI felt that the end section of this song sounded pretty similar to Five Years by David Bowie, I'm wondering if there's some sort of connection? Like, inspiration-wise that is.
Indigo from Adelaide, AustraliaI always thought it was called Father until i bought the actual cd and it was changed to The End. i love this song and the story that goes with the whole album. this song sounds great live, but the version on the video here isn't as good.
Brad from Lexington, KyThis song sounds very similar to the opening track of Pink Floyd's "The Wall" album, "In the Flesh", but this was probably intentional.
The first version of The Beatles "Helter Skelter" was a 27 minute jam, so you can imagine what Ringo was going through pounding away all that time. To convince the guys that he needed a break, he screamed, "I've got blisters on my fingers!" This was included on the fadeout.
