THE END
[Music:  "Down So Long", Jewel]

The sun sets behind the mountains
I'm ten thousasnd miles from anywhere 
And my bracelet and my heart 
Both just got shot up
And at this point I just don't even care 

The wind blows cold as I reach the top 
Sounds like somebody's hunting me, but I've got a job to do
Try to pray to Jesus,  "Let me live a little longer", but the words just won't come
Got everybody in hell looking for me but you

Well I've been down so long 
For me to climb back up here
And I've been down for so long 
That the end must be drawing near 

I looked to everybody but me for justification
Until I found an angel on an island
Who said she didn't see any causes that were worth the fighting for
And the old man who raised me said, "It's simple... just taking a life - 
Don't matter which is the right side
If it's someone else's crime" 

Well I've been down so long 
Sinking deeper every year
And I've been down for so long 
That the end must be drawing near 

And so I took a trip 
Caught a plane
Off to Tibet
All against your last command
And then a masked man gives the order
And against the wall I stand--

We've been down so long 
What is there left to fear?
We've been down so long 
That the end must be... 
The end must be... 
The end must be drawing near
