Years ago, you said to me, "I think I'm losing the fight
Or the fight is losing me, I'm not certain"
And here we are, the closing scenes and all the house lights come up
Oh, the falling of our final curtain

I've played a role for so long that I've forgotten myself
But I said I'd be there and I'm keeping my word
You've played yourself so well and now I want to be you
A great imitation of losing my nerve

So it's over and everything is wrong, everything has gone
And I know that everything means nothing
Oh, it's over but I don't want to fight, I don't want to be right
I know that everything means nothing
On the road to Damascus they fell

I saw the light, I saw the light but hey, it never saw me
Oh, conversion has just left me heathen
And we could wait a thousand years perhaps a million or more
If it's worth waiting for but I'm leaving

So on to a Mecca of earthly delights
Depression is only desire deprived
Once more unto the breach and fuck my getting it right
We've died for so long, let's just get out alive

'Cause it's over and everything is wrong, everything has gone
And I know that everything means nothing
Oh, it's over but I don't want to fight, I don't want to be right
I know that everything means nothing
On the road to Damascus they fell
Well, I've been to Damascus

Hell is where I'm gonna be
The devil my intimate friend
And hell is other people's hearts
And knowing that everything must end

Oh, it's over and everything is wrong, everything has gone
And I know that everything means nothing
Oh, it's over but I don't want to fight, I don't want to be right
I know that everything means nothing, oh, it's over

Oh, it's over but I don't want to fight, I don't want to be right
I know that everything means nothing
On the road to Damascus they fell
I've been to Damascus as well
