I had a conversation with a dying man
He said "Son, make sure you live while you still can,"
Said "I can lie to the rules of war and I can swim the seas,"
He said "Boy, oh you know not what you have"

Now I lay on my bed waiting
Those words resound in my head
Now I remember he told me
"You'll see when everything ends"

I had a conversation with a dying man
Said "Life passes by in a blink of an eye
The worst path to follow, swallowed by the sea"
You said "so? enjoy it while you can"

Now I lay on my bed waiting
Those words resound in my head
Now I remember he told me
"You'll see when everything ends"
(And everything will end)

Now I remember he told me
"You'll see when everything ends"

(Everything ends)
(Everything ends)
(Everything ends)

Here I lie, falling asleep on my death bed
I don't think they're worthless anymore

Now I lay on my bed waiting
Those words resound in my head
Now I remember he told me
"You'll see where everything ends"

I had a conversation with a dying man
He said "Son, make sure you live while you still can"

    I would probably say that the meaning of it is to do with regretting being obnoxious and not listening to the truth. Well, that's how it speaks to me anyway.
