"Beføre I'm Dead" as written by and Kasson Daniel Hartwell....
Moon hangs around
A blade over my head
Reminds me
What to do before I'm dead

Night consumes light
And all I dread
Reminds me what to do before I'm dead
Sun reclines, heats my mind

Reminds me what to leave behind
Light eats night and all I never said
Reminds me what to do before I'm
To see you

To touch you
Epochs fly, reminds me
What I hide, reminds me
The desert skies

Cracks the spies
Reminds me what I never tried
The ocean wide salted red
Reminds me what to do before I'm dead

To see you
To touch you
To feel you
To tell you

The sun reclines, remind me
The desert skies, remind me
The ocean wide salted red
Reminds me

    General CommentI heard this the first time when I watched "Queen of the Damned".
    It was the first song of the Kidneythieves I heard, in fact.
    And I started to look for more songs afterwards, which probably says enough about my reaction.

    When I cut it loose from the movie, it could be about someone that is life threatening ill, whose life is fading away, a teenager probably. He/She looks out of the window of the hospital at night and dreams of all the things he/she wants to do before he/she is dead. All the things he/she is missing.
    The hospital picture comes from "Oceans wide of salted red", which means blood, I think. Desert skies, well, desert skies are known for their beautiful stars. Like I said, at night.
    The sun reclines, metaphor for life fading away?
    Then, there is of course the mention of the lover. Perhaps someone he/she loves but never had the chance to tell?

    But I can couple it to the movie really good. Becoming a vampire, being bound to the night, the blood referring to the new life, the lover of the reason why she "chose" this life. Great choice for the soundtrack.
