"Final Exit" as written by Burton C. Bell, Dino A.m. Cazares and Eugene Victor Hoglan....
Your Life no longer has any value
Let them tell you what your own life is worth
There is no compassion as life fades away
This self deliverance the choice you have made
Contemplate your last breath
As you see the face of death
Contemplate your last breath
Breath, slowly breath
Goodbye
The pain in your life I cannot perceive
Crimes of humanity I see and believe
Contemplate your last breath
As you see the face of death
Contemplate your last breath
Breath, slowly breath
Goodbye
Like the knife that cuts through me
Stabbing uncertainty
It bleeds my life I know
Draining my heart my soul
Contemplate your last breath
Breath, slowly breath
Goodbye
Goodbye

    General CommentI think the lyrics speak for themselves and there is no particular hidden meaning. Would say that it deffinatley draws a parrallell to Ressurection, maybe not lyrically but I think the two of them do have some sort of connection.

    They also seem to be playing the two of them next to each other on this live tour, going to the Garage in Glasgow tonight to see them, setlist from the manchester show looks really good, really hope they play this song.

    I think this and powershifter are the best on the album.

    General CommentTo add to this song it should be known that the quote

    "Final Exit...
    The practicalities
    of self-deliverance"

    Is directly from this book finalexit.org/ergo-store/…

    I could be way off but this song is certainly from my view point about suicide. Not sure if it's about assisted suicide tho.

    The indications showing that it could be assisted suicide would be the quote in the middle of the song
    "It's quite an experience
    to hold the hand of someone
    as they move
    from living to dead."

    As that being the voice of the person doing the action. It's a very powerful song and I could see it having a very heavy meaning for many outside of the concept.

    General Comment"it's quite an experience to hold the hand of someone as they move from living to dead" does indeed come from a book by journalist Derek Humphry. The full title is "Final Exit: The Art of Self-Deliverence from a Terminal Illness". So the song IS, in fact, about assisted suicide and the lyrics say as much.
