about

Also known as 'In the End' by A Fish Called Bastard.

lyrics

Just to exist,
Yeh that was it,
Enough to survive,
Enough to stay alive.
I got fucked up
And fell for love
But it was just another means to an end, in the end.

Bad decisions & stupid mistakes still somehow lead me here,
To this everything to my everything somehow.

You saved me from myself,
And from anyone else,
My own safety net,
The hand that catches me when i fall and its all i need,
To drag me off the ground when i’ve got nothing left.

Building up a wall
So i couldn’t fall
Or feel or see,
What’d become of me
But we got fucked up
And fell in love
And i was the means to my end, once again.

Bad decisions and naive mistakes they all lead me here,
To this emptiness, to the edge of reality.
Bad decisions and blindsightedness set me on the path to here
To this end, to my end but i couldn’t see.

I saved you from yourself,
And from all the rest,
Your own safety net,
The hand that propped you up, kept you sane for all these years,
Til i had to let go, I couldn’t hold on any longer.

We lost sight of ourselves,
And of everyone else,
Not a safety net,
But a weight tying us down, clinging on to what was left,
Did it mean anything to either of us in the end?
