(1st Verse)
Running with the street lights
Laughing at the grave
He swears he's gonna give it up
It's never gonna be enough
I just wanna be there
When your all alone
Thinking 'bout a better day
When ya had it in your bones

(Chorus)
This could be the end
This could be the end
This could be the end
This could be the end

(2nd Verse)
I see you in the evening
Sitting on your throne
And praying with the fireball,
And posted it up against the wall
I just wanna hold you
Take you by your hand
And tell you that you're good enough
Tell you that it's gonna be tough

(Chorus)
This could be the end
This could be the end
This could be the end
This could be the end
'Cause I 'ain't got a home


(3rd Verse)
Running from the street lights
Shinning on the grave
Once you've had the good stuff
Never gonna fill you up
I wanna be the one who
Gives 'em all the world
And gives 'em all a feel of it
Just a little taste of it

(Chorus)
This could be the end
This could be the end
This could be the end
This could be the end
'Cause I 'ain't got a home
I'm out here all alone
'Cause I 'ain't got a home
Out here all alone
Said I 'ain't got a home
Out here all alone
I 'ain't got a home
I'll forever roam
I 'ain't got a home...

    I think it is about a man who is tired of running and is ready to settle down. The woman he met is the end of that running for him... But there are some issues with the relationship. Perhaps she is running too...

    He knows it is a powerful connection and he comments that he doesn't have a home... But suggests he is ready to come home...

    This is a song about drug addiction. Probably opiates. Started out as casual use, never thinking of addiction. No obvious signs of abuse yet. There is a person that cares deeply for this person and truly wants to be there for unconditional support and is starting to suspect "something". This person wants to confront the addict before its too late. 2nd verse the addict is getting sloppy and the friend is ready to confront and tell them it will not be easy, but they can do it. 3rd verse friend helps addict turn life around. The friend shows ex addict better ways to "have fun". But because of the drugs, he's lost friends, family and possessions so is now alone with know where to go. ?that's just what i got out of it.

    I think that this song is about somebody struggling with the addiction of drugs. And that he wants to be there for that person so they do not go back to their addiction. " i just wanna be there when your all alone thinking bout a better day when ya had it in your bones. "

    These lyrics are incorrect!!!
    These are the actual lyrics from their album

    I don't want the street lights
    Laughing at the grave
    He swears he's gonna give it up
    It's never gonna be enough
    I just wanna be there
    When you're all alone
    Thinking about a better day
    When you had it in your bones
    This could be the end..
    I see you in the evening
    Sitting on your throne
    You're playing with a fireball
    And posted up against the wall
    I just wanna hold you
    Take you by your hand
    And tell you that you're good enough
    Tell you that it;s gonna be tough
    This could be the end..
    Cos i ain't got a home
    Running from the street lights
    Shining on the grave
    Once you've had the good stuff
    Never gonna fill you up
    I wanna be the one who
    Gives them all a whirl
    And gives them all the finger at it
    Just a little taste of it
    This could be the end..
    Cos i ain't got a home
    I'll forever roam
    Said i ain't got a home
    I'll forever roam
    No i ain't got a home
    I'll forever roam
    I ain't got a home

    I think its about someone who sees the misery in someones life. Sees someone thats suffering from insecurity, that is dying to be recognized. This person is trapped in a world where they are constantly degraded, never good enough for their family, their loved ones, nor society. And this song is about someone wanting to show them that they are good enouigh, that they mean something to someone, that a better day will come.
