Song Spotlight: The Living End - The Ending is Just the Beginning Repeating



I was struggling trying to come up with a new tune to post this week and then Inky reminded me that the new record from The Living End came out this week. This is the first track off the new record (of the same name) and it is fantastic. I'd expect nothing less from TLE who have been consistently making great records for over fifteen years now. This track is a worthy successor to other great Living End songs like White Noise, Long Live the Weekend, Prisoner of Society and Roll On.

We are the wounded soldiers
We are the refugees
We are the dead eyed workers
I am you, and you are me

We are the model citizens
We are the absentees
We are the politicians
I'm exactly like you, you're just like me

We are the tired and weary
We are the restless and bored
We are the start of something much better
We're the end of what came before

The ending is just the beginning repeating
The ending is just the beginning repeating
Everything goes away but comes back some day
The ending is just the beginning repeating

We're not always survivors
There are no guarantees
We have our drink, we drink to our health
And I am like you, so have one on me

We're getting tired of waiting
And the rain always comes with the storm
And they always say lightning never strikes twice
But then came the knock at the door

The ending is just the beginning repeating
The ending is just the beginning repeating
Everything goes away but comes back some day
The ending is just the beginning repeating

We are the tired and weary
We are the restless and bored
We are the start of something much better
We're the end of what came before

We're getting tired of waiting
So we're running into the storm
And they always say lightning never strikes twice
But then came the knock at the door
