In The End

  Christ-like sacrifice!
  Pass that cup to me
  I will bear the price
  If the puny and insignificant
  Are to have a glimpse of peace
  Then someone much like I myself
  Almost exactly like I myself
  Must rise above the rabble
  By helping them to their knees
  As this is how I see myself

  I might as well anoint myself
  For the greater good of us all
  You'll thank me in the end
  For the loss of the weak and small
  You'll thank me in the end
  Though it may seem painful at first
  You'll thank me in the end
  And you'll wonder how things could get worse
  You may not reach the end

  Speak my name as your last breath is spent
  When you were lost in your ignorant haze
  And afraid of the dark
  I led you out again!
  When you dreamed that God was love
  And life was a lark
  I woke you up again!

  For my sacrifice
  Who will bear the price?
  The extraordinary problems
  That occur from day to day
  Require somebody like myself
  Let's say exactly like I myself
  So that ordinary labors
  May proceed with least delay
  So we've elected me myself
  Since we can think of no one else
  When you're in the mood to complain
  You'll call me in the end
  Then for things that I'll do in your name
  You'll blame me in the end

  But if I use the right choice of words
  Your family and friends
  You'd betray like a cowardly turd
  Then refuse to watch the end
  Then we'll go through the whole thing again

  And when I'm standing astride your backs
  With my head in the stars
  You'll take me in the end
  While I'm bending you over and
  Screwing you hard in the arse
  You'll love me in the end

  Pass that whip to me
  Let us raise the price
  Never knowing love
  Just so you can believe a power above
  This is my sacrifice!
  You'll thank me
  You'll thank me in the end
  You'll like me in the end
  You'll love me in the end
  You'll praise me in the end
  You'll thank me
