The End

Last night I dreamed I was being eaten by wolves • I dreamed the Goat God was going to get me • And you were sitting there with my mom and my dad • Saying what was going to be I ought to let be • Like you were destiny

CHORUS • This is the song that’s going to free me • Because this morning it’s not just you • It’s anyone • It’s all men • I’m sliding over again to the end

Last night I saw all the places I’ve ever been • I rode my pony to the gas station • And you were standing there with my change in your hand • Saying, “I’ve got no time for conversation” • Like I was anyone

CHORUS

It’s time to shoot this blind old pointless dog • Speaking metaphorically if I may • ‘Cause I don’t have a gun • I couldn’t use one • So maybe I’ll just walk away • Here I go

Last night I thought someone kicked the vending machine • I heard the coffee cups talking softly • And you were just lying there with a mouth full of cream • Saying, “Oh please, baby, don’t forget me” • Like we could ever be

CHORUS

Yes, this is the song that’s going to free me • Because this morning it’s not even you • It’s everyone • It’s all men • I’m sliding over again to the end • It’s anyone • It’s all men • I’m sliding over again to the end

Amen

It’s obvious that when the apocalypse comes, I will be one of the weak people. I will have no spin kicks with which to defend myself. I will have only the magic of my words and my understanding to protect me. I will be meat for the beast. (Unless I can engage him in conversation.) And I am fine with that. If my death at monstrous hands becomes imminent, I hope I can meet it in a lounge chair, sipping on a gin martini.
