Sheryl Crow – In The End Lyrics

In The End By Sheryl Crow

There’s a fly on the wall in the house on the hill
Where the king of the world watches TV
And the people await for his latest mandate
To a nation of angry believers

His words are a trap while his loyal band of thugs
Cover up all his many transgressions
The fly lands on his ear and whispers, “What’s there to fear
As long as you’re still the obsession?”

Is it too late to turn back now?
Too late to see the light?
Do you make a vow to Heaven and Hell?
When you wake up at night, do you ask yourself?

In the end, did you feed them? How’d you treat them?
Is it so hard to love?
In the end, like you mean it, like you’ve seen it
You get back what you give in the end

There’s a man on the cross with His arms open wide
And a fear that they’ll quench the world’s fires
But His name is a shield to the ones who would fear
Their own power and greed, and desire

In the end, did you need them? How’d you treat them?
Is it so hard to love?
In the end, like you mean it, like you’ve seen it
You get back what you give in the end

Is it so hard to love?
In the end
You get back what you give in the end

You’ll only live once, or maybe you’ll live twice
Depending on how well you spend it
You see, karma’s a drag, you come back as a rat
Dozen traps, they’ll bite your own descendants

Is it too late to turn back now?
Too late to turn around?
You’ll get one chance in this life
You can turn around things or you can close your eyes

In the end, did you feed them? How’d you treat them?
Is it so hard to love?
In the end, like you mean it, like you’ve seen it
You get back what you give

In the end, did you hear them? Did you feed them?
Is it so hard to love?
In the end, like you mean it, like you’ve seen it
You get back what you give in the end
You get back what you give in the end

Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah
