"Death is certain, replacing both the siren-song of Paradise and the dread of Hell. Life on this earth, with all its mystery and beauty and pain, is then to be lived far more intensely: we stumble and get up, we are sad, confident, insecure, feel loneliness and joy and love. There is nothing more; but I want nothing more." Christopher Hitchens

Verse 1
Was it love that brought you here
A hapless soldier in an endless war
Adrift on a sea of rage and perils
But life has robbed you of options

Lies, when I hold you to the light
Fears, the cry of child in the night.
Pain, just call my name in the rain
Dreams, A bed of thorns with no pain

Verse 2
On an ocean filled with the truth
It is the lies that make the shore
The quiet makes life much louder
Like a heart in need of a soul

Verse 3
One path that looks like another
One lonely road leads to another
Was it rage that lead you to the edge
Or the sound of dirt upon the lid
