    Coming on/Coming in

    Hi there,
    which of the two following sentences is more correct?

    "Is the end coming on this day?"
    "Is the end coming in this day?"

    It's for a song lyrics.
    Thank you,

    Fabio

    Re: Coming on/Coming in

    The first one sounds more natural.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
