"Ars Moriendi" as written by and Michael Patton....
He who hears in the vast silence He who wafts on the red wind "In extremis" He who steals pearls from the ashes He who leaps across the precipice "Ride si sapis" 'Ave atque vale' I shall rise again Bardo of the flesh So feast on me All my bones are laughing As you're dancing on my grave 'Ave atque vale'

    General Commentyes, ars moriendi is translated to "the art of dying," and it comes from texts that were supposed to tell a person how to die properly, or to die well (according to christian belief during that time).

    General Commenttiny little snippet of information: 'In Extremis' means 'at the very point of death'. obviously the song meaning is clear, just thought if anyone wanted to know a bit more latin...
