If our ship went down and spilled us out,
would you think of me and smile as you drown?

If I kept in mind that you are going to die,
would I hold my tongue?
Tomorrow you'll be gone.

    General CommentThe title (a play on ontology and thanatology, the studies of life and death, respectively) and lyrics ask what your last thought will be with imminent death approaching. The CD is about a broken marriage, making this a lamentation of being alone when we could die at any moment.
