Meaning
The narrator of the song realizes he has pushed life to far. He knows that he is about to die if he keeps going like he is. In fact, he is so close to death that an angel, or possibly even God himself, is communicating with him from the other side. When he realizes he needs a second chance to fix his life, he asks the angel, or God, which ever it is, for that chance, as well as to bring him back to heaven when his time finally comes. It isn't said if he receives this chance or not. At least this is what I get out of this song.

I feel like it is just that he is sick of life. He "won't struggle on in a world so cold, in a world so wrong." He isn't literally terminally ill, he just feels that the world is slowly killing him. The "Brompton Cocktail" eases his pain by killing him and removing him from this world. Ax7 says "such a price that WE pay." Since not everyone in the world has a terminal illness, I don't feel like this song is speaking of a literal terminal illness. Maybe I'm reading to much symbolism into the song, but this is how it makes me feel.
