 Final Transcendence   
 
You know it's coming 
Never see the hourglass 
But feel the waning sand 
Where will you be 
When spirit disconnects from body 

 
Die on your feet 
As your soul is cleaved from the flesh 
Instantly lifeless 
Mannequin on dirt 
Hunter consummates the pact
 
Laid on the slab 
A machine can testify 
These final moments 
Prior to extraction   
From a feeble and frail shell 
You aren't blind to the coming
 
You know it's coming 
The final transcendence
 
Here in your liquid grave 
Succumb to pressure 
Opened wrists 
Expressing every ounce of life 
And still not in control
 
You know it's coming 
The final transcendence
 
You know it's coming 
The reversion impossible 
Calling to come skyward 
Irresistible, an urge to flight
 
The unfurling wings   
At the time of division 
Lifting your ether from husk 
A freedom unbinding 
An ascension to light
 

You know it's coming 
You know it's coming 
You know it's coming 
The final transcendence
 
 
You know it's coming 
You know it's coming 
You know it's coming 
The final transcendence

What's the inspiration this time? Similar to the last?

That's a great opening stanza. Starting strong, and the building continues as you go on. I'm not sold on the "liquid grave" part, but perhaps that's out of ignorance. I wouldn't assume someone with opened wrists has much control over anything, expressing life or not. And the rest makes sense in the logic of the song, so I haven't anything left to say. Is there a reason why opened wrists exhibit control? Hm. Interesting as always in any case.

I've been thinking, well, about death. Not in a suicidal way, but more analytical. All my grandparents have died over a 30-year span, and I heard bits and pieces about their end throughout my life; cancer, diseases, complications. I knew someone who did commit suicide, so that also comes into play, albeit not in the method described. The basic concept was two parts: you aren't in complete control of your death; even with suicide, the exact moment of death can lack precision (say, slitting wrists vs gunshot to the head); the second was to extrapolate on the moment of death. 

Death is fascinating because we don't have people that come back and give you a run down of the experience---at least not credible ones. I know the interest is dark, but to just think through what happens is interesting. There is a mystery that lacks a first person view.

Ah, that elucidates things a bit. I've thought about death in both suicidal and non-suicidal terms, so I can relate. Forgetting faith, the moment of death is pretty much the biggest mystery in life. Good thinking with this piece. Your explanation also reconciles that stanza about which I was unsure.
