    Lyrics

    This is the end, beautiful friend
    This is the end, my only friend
    The end of our elaborate plans
    The end of everything that stands
    The end, no safety, no surprise
    The end, I'll never look into your eyes again

    Can you picture what we'll be
    So limitless and free
    Desperately in need of some stranger's hand
    In a desperate land?

    Lost in a Roman wilderness of pain
    And all the children are insane
    All the children are insane
    Waiting for the summer rain

    There's danger on the edge of town
    Ride the King's highway, baby
    Weird scenes inside the gold mine
    Ride the highway West

    Ride the snake
    Ride the snake to the lake
    The ancient lake
    The snake is 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're you taking us?

    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 to 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 he came to a door and he looked inside
    "Father?", "Yes, son?"
    "I want to kill you, mother, I want to"

    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

    This is the end, beautiful friend
    This is the end, my only friend
    The end, 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
