"Gratitude" as written by and Jaz Coleman Paul Raven....
Let me tell you about the hearts of my people
Let me tell you of the meanings of our tribe
A dream unspoken, a promised kept the secret comes
Alive

For all the years I've watched your back and you've watched mine
We always knew the clouds would part and a golden dawn will
Shine

And when you find yourself alont the untrodden path
Remember me with a smile, and drink, a gesture or a laugh
Gratitude

You look at me but I've been looking at you
We only were a mirror to show what you could do
O innovator, o enlightened scolar play and write
Rewrite the old books, rennaisance perform new rites of light

And when you find yourself alont the untrodden path
Remember me with a smile, and drink, a gesture or a laugh
Gratitude

The wise will redefine paradise
Farmer and the visionary, a village - simple lives
Adapting to strange seasons in certain remote regions
Where no-one has exemption from total redemption

And when you find yourself alont the untrodden path
Remember me with a smile, a drink, a gesture or a laugh
And a toast for the man who loves every hour of every day
And a feast for the friends and faces met along way
Gratitude

    General CommentIt sounds like last ever song of KJ. It even sounds like Jaz prepares to die. Of course, I hope they will release more albums, but it's obvious you can hear some optimistic goodbye here.

    General CommentSuch an amazing song.. the music is so somber and heavy, with such an emotional chorus, especially when the last bit bears down on you: "a toast for the man who.." This is definitely a bittersweet goodbye song, either to his friends and family or even the fans. I think Jaz must see his fans as equals and it's a beautiful thing.

    This is the sort of feeling that one would hope anyone would be able to feel during their final hours, while in the company of others. Unfortunately it is not always so.

    I hope this is the last song they ever play live :)
