"Dead" as written by and Tommy Siegel....
Maybe it was just the sleeping pills
When I went to bed last night
Maybe I just never made it home
And what if there's always been
A tiny, tiny hole inside my heart
Leaking very very
Very very slowly

And if you're dead
How do you know if
You are really dead
Or stuck in a dull dream
About nothing that never ends

I was staring out the window when
I could've swore I heard a voice
What if there was someone calling me
Or what if it was just the sound
Of my soul slipping out last night
Sliding in between the cracks of my bedroom door

And if you're dead
How do you know if
You are really dead
Or stuck in a dull dream
About nothing that never ends

We all at minimum
Deserve a unique exit from this world
So if you're there god
See to it god
See to it

And if you're there god
See to it god
See to it


So if you're there god
See to it god
See to it

    General CommentI gotta say I really don't know what to take away from this song.

    I've read interviews saying they were influenced by the Book of Revelations when writing this album, not as followers but just by the ideas presented in the book.

    As an atheist I don't really understand the sentiment of the line:

    "We all at minimum Deserve a unique exit from this world"

    It sounds extremely vain to me, what do they mean by "unique"?

    It's one of my favourite songs on the album, probably for its ambiguity but I was just wondering what other's thought.
