MP3: The Fiery Furnaces - "The End is Near"

Thursday, June 11, 2009 - 02:01 PM

The time has come for Soundcheck's music video contest, featuring The Fiery Furnaces' 'The End is Near,' the first single from their upcoming album, I'm Going Away. Download the song above.

It's a great, short song -- 2 minutes and 55 seconds of content resignation with a simple, solid piano hook. But Eleanor and Matthew got one thing wrong: The end is very far away. You have until August 31 to finish your video for the song and upload it to YouTube. If you want to enter the challenge, click here for the details.

For convenience sake, we've included the song's lyrics (and a funny video the Furnaces made about interpreting them) after the jump.

"The End is Near"

By The Fiery Furnaces

The end is near.
The end is near, the time has come.
There ain't no way.
Nobody will save you now.

The end is near.
The end is near, the time has come.
Don't even think
That there's a way out of this.

Down the road and up the creek: It's over.
It's such a clear and certain hell of a thing: It's over.

You're on your own.
You're on your own, once upon a time
The other night
You couldn't do nothing right.

"I'm on my own,"
You said to yourself down on your
Luck. Woe is me
Etc.: Lonely. See...

The worst times weren't so bad, compared to this. Though,
That ain't much comfort. I might try to reminisce. No.

The end is near.
The end is near, the time has come.
Don't even think
That there's a way out of this.

The end is near.
The end is near, the time has come.
There ain't no way.
There's nothing will save us now.
