"...around the bend / I wandered there astray / And there I found the end"


The End

 

Long the strife short the breath

Late on this day in May

The sun has gone away

Dark is life dark is death

And we only delay

The downfall and decay

Which lurks around the bend

 

I wandered there astray

And there I found the end

 

They say this or that is why

Philosophizing as they die

In vain too late the hand of fate

Removes us from the stage

And I think it is funny

It is all about money

At the end of the age

 

All we have is absurdity

Nothing else left for you and me
