Lyrics[edit]

 [Intro]
 
 [Chorus]
 This is the end
 Beautiful friend
 This is the end
 My only friend
 The end
 
 [Verse 1]
 Of our elaborate plans, the end
 Of everything that stands, the end
 No safety or surprise, the end
 I'll never look into your eyes again
 
 [Verse 2]
 Can you picture what will be?
 So limitless and free
 Desperately in need
 Of some stranger's hand
 In a desperate land
 
 [Verse 3]
 Lost in a Roman wilderness of pain
 And all the children are insane
 All the children are insane
 Waiting for the summer rain, yeah
 
 [Verse 4]
 There's danger on the edge of town
 Ride the King's Highway, baby
 Weird scenes inside the gold mine
 Ride the highway West, baby
 Ride the snake, ride the snake
 To the lake, the ancient lake, baby
 The snake, he's long, seven miles
 Ride the snake
 He's old and his skin is cold
 The west is the best
 The west is the best
 Get here and we'll do the rest
 The blue bus is calling us
 The blue bus is calling us
 Driver, where you taking us?
 
 [Verse 5]
 The killer awoke before dawn
 He put his boots on
 He took a face from the ancient gallery
 And he walked on down the hall
 He went into the room where his sister lived, and then he
 Paid a visit to his brother, and then he
 He walked on down the hall, and
 And he came to a door
 And he looked inside
 "Father?" "Yes, son?" "I want to kill you"
 "Mother? I want to..."
 
 [Bridge]
 Come on baby, take a chance with us
 Come on baby, take a chance with us
 Come on baby, take a chance with us
 And meet me at the back of the blue bus
 Of the blue bus, on the blue bus, on the blue bus
 Come on yeah
 Fuck, fuck
 Fuck fuck, fuck, fuck
 Come on baby, fuck me baby yeah
 Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck
 Come on baby, fuck me baby
 Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck
 Come on
 Fuck fuck
 Alright
 Fuck fuck
 Kill, kill, kill, kill
 
 [Chorus]
 This is the end
 Beautiful friend
 This is the end
 My only friend, the end
 
 [Verse 6]
 It hurts to set you free
 But you'll never follow me
 The end of laughter and soft lies
 The end of nights we tried to die
 This is the end
