The End Lyrics
Running with the street lights
Laughing at the grave
He swears he's gonna give it up
It's never gonna be enough
I just wanna be there
When you're all alone
Thinking bout a better day
When ya had it in ya bones
This could be...

Drunk driving all the time. The lead had a drinking problem. Hes on his throne. But he still loves his girl.

I take the whole of this song as the end of suffering, the end of pain. Two lost people, one a bit stronger than the other, extending hope. Hope for a better life. Having the courage to voice love and overcome those demons whatever they may be. A song of hope and freedom. So good and honest. Freedom from addiction, tragedy, loss, pain, heartache.. hope. Lyrically one of the best bands.

“They broke in my house and stole all my shit. I knew I was going to have to move because people knew who I was, That night we had a show, and we got onstage for soundcheck, and I just started playing, ‘This could be the end. I ain’t got a home. I’ll forever roam.'”

I would say definitely about a heroin addict struggling with his addiction and knows that one more hit can be the end... death. One is never enough. 1 is too many 1,000 is never enough...

to me its about desolation its complete surrender to the shit that is happening to them no more fighting its a resolution to the big problem it could be the end very well written both lyric and riff wise. its a difficult realization to come to and it can take years of fucked up heartache and pain and suffering but when you get there who knows maybe its easier maybe its just as hard props to those four kings live up

This character is addicted to drugs and seems willing to give everything up for them. Love, a home, happiness, etc. They want to give them up but won't and know the next time could be the last time for love and even for living

He loves her, but her love is dead, he wishes she still loved him. Its the end of love.

Two people separated. Yet guessing each others feelings all the time. Not worried. Not falling out of love. Just having to be apart.
