"Blake's View" as written by and M. Ward....
"Death is just a door"
Blake said it first
It's just another room we enter
It's the threshold that hurts

Birth is just a chorus
And Death is just a Verse
In the great song of spring
That the mockingbrids sing

We come and we go
A-weeping and a-wailing
Our heads in the hands of the nurse
Put your head on my shoulder, baby
Tell me where it hurts
You say you lost your one and only
Could it get any worse?

I say, "death is just a door
You'll be Reunited on the other side"
It's alright
"Death is just a door
You'll be reunited bye and bye"

    General CommentThis is a song that borrows heavily from the poet William Blake. Blake was a visionary poet of the 18th century, and considered one of the best literary minds to ever come out of Britain. This song is talking about Blake's basic philosophy/theology. That this life is temporary, and simply preparation for the next. Life is a cycle, like the song says. If we are a part of this life, then we are subject to this cycle. Like Blake and Ward believe, we'll always be apart of this eternity.

    General CommentAlthough I don't believe in God or the afterlife, this is still such a beautiful song.
