This is the end, this is the last time
Take what you want, why wait a lifetime?
Why wait till tomorrow when you can just take it today

And it's not far away

Live all your life according to a plan
Live by the rules, the best way you can
So the system that fed you and bred you can throw you away

And it's not far away, not far away

Ohh, ohh
The system that fed you and bred you will throw you away
And it's not far away, not far away

Not far away, not far away
Not far away, not far away

Ohh, ohh
There's a system that bred you and fed you will throw you away
And it's not far away, not far away

Ohh, ohh
Total chaos, total destruction, not far away, not far away
Social collapse, moral corruption, not far away

I feel it in my bones, it gets closer each day
The future is here and it won't go away

They're gonna segregate the people
They're gonna put you in your place
And no one's gonna listen when you try to plead your case
And those who think they are immune will get slapped in the face

Chaos will rule, no one will be safe
The ending is near and it's not far away

The future is here and it's ours to dictate
The ending is closer, so why hesitate
Ohh, ohh

The ending is near and it's not far away
