Eerie whispers
Trapped beneath my pillow
Won't let me sleep
Your memories

And I know you're in this room
I'm sure I heard you sigh
Floating in between
Where our worlds collide

Scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see
And it scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see

And I know the moment's near
And there's nothing you can do
Look through a faithless eye
Are you afraid to die?

It scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see
And it scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see

It scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see
And it scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see

    The song title explains it all really. Imagine laying in bed knowing our about to die. Your scared shitless because you have gone around your whole life saying there isnt a God and now you think there might be, your hoping there is and if there is all you know about him is what you have heard from fundamentalists. You were taught to fear God. Dont fear God. God loves us all and its okay to die. This songs makes me feel good believe it or not.

    Actually, the song has nothing to do with 'loving god'. It's about the fear that everyone feels, whether they are of faith or not. It sheds some light on the idea that some people 'believe' to reaffirm that they will be okay after they die, as a cowardly notion.

    it´s so much easier to live ur whole life thinking u won´t have to pay for ur mistakes and right before u die, u remember God could save u and ur afterlife. everything comes
    back, sooner or later.
    i wonder, is it scarier for ppl to think they might "get punished" or to think u´re on ur own after all is over here?
