I Know The End

  • Somewhere in Germany but I can't place it
    Man, I hate this part of Texas
    Close my eyes, fantasize
    Three clicks and I'm home
    When I get back I'll lay around
    And I'll get up and lay back down
    Romanticize the quiet life
    There's no place like my room

    But you had to go
    I know, I know, I know
    Like a wave that crashed and melted on the shore
    Not even the burnouts are out here anymore
    And you had to go
    I know, I know, I know

    Out in the park we watch the sunset
    Talking on a rusty swing set
    After a while you went quiet and I got mean
    Always pushing you away from me
    But you come back with gravity
    And when I call you come home
    A bird in your teeth

    So I gotta go
    I know, I know, I know
    When the sirens sound you'll hide under the floor
    But I'm not gonna go down with my hometown in a tornado
    I'm gonna chase it
    I know, I know, I know
    I gotta go now
    I know, I know, I know

    Driving out into the sun
    Let the ultraviolet cover me up
    Went looking for a creation myth
    Ended up with a pair of cracked lips
    Windows down, scream along
    To some America first rap country song
    A slaughterhouse, an outlet mall
    Slot machines, fear of God
    Windows down, heater on
    Big bolts of lightning hanging low
    Over the coast, everyone's convinced
    It's a government drone or alien spaceship
    Either way, we're not alone
    I'll find a new place to be from
    A haunted house with a picket fence
    To float around and ghost my friends
    No, I'm not afraid to disappear
    The billboard said the end is near
    I turned around, there was nothing there
    Yeah, I guess the end is here

    (The end is here)
    (The end is here)
    (The end is here)
