"Beautiful Death" as written by and Jari Tapani Maeenpaeae....
Beautiful Death

My face turned pale before the cold eyes of death
My body was frozen by the stare from the dark
I don't want to think of anything, but there's storm of thoughts in my head
I wasn't prepared for this, 'cause I'm not ready to die
Nothing could have prepared me for this

Nothing but blood so red and deceased
Nothing but pain, I fall on my knees
Tormenting demons, I suffer and bleed
Only way out is through window of dreams

The rain whips the lonely and crushed soul
The dark clouds are closing fast, the wind is blowing the colours of life
away
The growing shadow will darken my dreams, and with the fire inside me it
feeds
I'll be screaming in the stars when it's over
Storms are raging on the path to home, once so silent and calm
the desperate glare of the dark light is cast on the fallen one
And when the illusions sigh no more, the journey to new dream will carry on
'cause life is just a beautiful death

Life turns a new and strange page
They will try to take everything away from me
You'll never know the future
Save me from the rain
Tell me what matters in life, if anything
I'm struggling with sickness
They will try to take everything away from me
Are you trying to hide from the end
Save me from the rain
Save me from the end

'Cause life will always be withering away from us
I want to be alone with you
and I'll give my heart to you, before I go
'cause life is just a beautiful, beautiful death

    General CommentJari wrote this when he got tuberculosis and had to have part of his lung removed-

    "20% of the time I spent in the army was really great and 80% was fucking bullshit and a waste of time. I guess the experience didn't affect me musically at all, but you never know, maybe in some subconscious level. I'm little bit bitter because I suspect that I got tuberculosis from the army that was discovered later on - actually too late. It got really bad and I needed to have an operation where they removed a part of my lung. I was hospitalized for months and it was a really dark time of my life. Actually, that is what the song "Beautiful Death" is about. So hey, maybe it did have some effect on me musically/lyrically after all. :)"

    General CommentObviously it's about a guy dying before he's ready. The greater message is that life is short, live it up.

    General CommentThis song is awesome!
    if this is the question "Tell me what matters in life, if anything"

    than this would we be the answer: "and I'll give my heart to you, before I go"

    Use the time that you are given...

    General CommentI love this song. The best part is where it breaks down to only the synth and he whispers "Nothing could have prepared me for this"

    General CommentAnd when the illusions sigh no more
    The journey to new dream will carry on!
    ['Cause life will always be withering away from us!]
    {You were into, I knew my heart's to you, before I go
    'Cause life is just a beautiful...} [beautiful death!]

    and the part that sounds weird after he whispers "Nothing could have prepared me for this" its "Only way out is through the window of dreams" reversed
