Man's becoming more corrupt now, godless, wicked, and cruel
The soulless man stood silenced, Mary's words rang so true
Chastisement worse than the flood, spread the word, it's all through
Don't kill the messenger girl
As if we haven't swam enough in this life of misery

Voice your prophecy, she'd us some light
Feel sorrow for mankind's chance to survive
Swallowed lies and swam in our own tears
A stab in the dark but it wounded our will
We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time

We've grown into the number six hundred sixty six
War breaks, a sign of the end, eternally expelled
Look to the sky for knowledge, the stars align tonight
Eclipse and heaven shall fall
Now I know I've seen it all in my life of misery

Voice your prophecy, she'd us some light
Feel sorrow for mankind's chance to survive
Swallowed lies and swam in our own tears
A stab in the dark but it wounded our will
Dust the apple off, savor each bite
And deep inside you know Adam was right
Lust and power, indulgence, no fear
Left with his sins, how does this end?
We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time

As the prophets she'd the light on what's to come the crowds did gather
Your time is precious, they explained, no time to worry, messiah's coming
Don't go to sleep tonight, darling, hold me in your arms
These will be our final days and I can't let go

Walls are falling, churches burning, women ravaged, children crying
Flesh is tearing, some still fighting
In this world of misery

Voice your prophecy, she'd us some light
Feel sorrow for mankind's chance to survive
Swallowed lies and swam in our own tears
A stab in the dark but it wounded our will
Dust the apple off, savor each bite
And deep inside you know Adam was right
Lust and power, indulgence, no fear
Left with his sins, how does this end?
We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time

    i think they are about how much wrong is in the world and all the horrible things humanity does and how eventually we,the humans, are going to end our world b/c of all the disgusting things we do and how we are just going to bring ourselves down eventually and everyone and everything with us.thats why the title is"the wicked end" b/c when we do end the world it wont be a peaceful end it will be a horrible,wicked end to humanity. theres a religious referance to this song b/c they are saying how from the begining of all humanity we were already doing wrong "Dust the apple off, savor each bite
    And deep inside you know Adam was right"
    then it says "We've grown in numbers six hundred sixty six" meaning that as we go on we are doing wrong more and more.at the end it says how horrible and sad of a world we live in and how we are always going to live in a world of misery we are never going to get better were just going to keep doing worng until we get rid of each other forever. another important lyric is the in the middle where it says "Voice your prophecy, shed us some light
    feel sorrow for mankids's chance to survive
    Swallowed lies and swam in our own tears
    A stab in the dark and it wounded our will
    We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time" that means that we should always beg and pray for some light from god and for him to feel mercey for us so we wont suffer so much.the second line meaning how we kinda wollow in our own pitty but im not so sure on those ones but yeah my meaning on the song could be too deep but this is what i get put of the song.

    As the prophets she'd the light on what's to come the crowds did gather.
    Your time is precious, they explained, no time to worry, messiah's coming.
    Don't go to sleep tonight, darling, hold me in your arms.
    These will be our final days and I can't let go.

    This could be about the apocalypse, how the heavens had abandoned mankind because of all the corruption of sin. Today is the last day on earth hence the phrase "hold onto me... We won't be here tomorrow

    It means that humans have false hope, and that the end is going to come eventually, and we should just accept it without trying to put god into the equation.
