I want to die without no fear
I want to die rejoicing
I want to meet my brother there
And hear his glorious voice sing
Could not bear it to be left alone
In this world so full of sorrow
So if you leave this world today
I'll follow you tomorrow
I want to be prepared to die
In any kind of weather
I want for you to be ready too
We'll fly away together
If you think your life will have no end
Your foolish days are numbered
Go and waste your time trying to pretend
Still you're bound for eternal slumber
And the wicked men who rule this land
With all their wealth and power
Are bound to die like you and I
And none can tell the hour
I want to live in freedom now
I will not wait for Heaven
I want to sing til Babylon falls
And we all will be forgiven
I want die without no fear
How I want to die rejoicing
How I want to meet my brother there
And hear his glorious voice sing

    General CommentThis song is a very powerful statement, a man who is at death's door and he knows it. His sorrow sends out a message to others who have forgotten what life is, and that eventually they will be following him.

    A song to remind us that we're fallable, no matter how invincible we think we are.

    General Commentah where to begin. this album is incredible. and he's a great artist amongst the few that are out there in our day and age. the theme definately seems to revole around the idea of death. but i don't think it's what he's saying in his songs and his words. i feel like he's saying don't worry about death and just get out there and live your life. because death is really just a small part of the greater life. just live to the fullest
