El más allá de Anathema
Los testimonios de experiencias más allá de la muerte no prueban nada científicamente pero despiertan en muchos la curiosidad de qué nos pasará exactamente cuando nuestro organismo deje de funcionar. El grupo de Liverpool llamado Anathema hace su propia aproximación al tema en esta canción, desde un punto de vista más poético que otra cosa, pero dejando claro que su interés por la muerte estaba más allá de sus originales influencias góticas: "And I felt myself going. I was in a great deal of pain. It was a very frightening experience. I began to slip, to just sort of feel myself going, and I remember trying to hold on. -I-ll be OK, I-ll be OK,- and it got to the point where I just couldn-t. And everything began to just become very quiet, and I can remember with every ounce of strength I had, I wanted to say goodbye to my wife. It was important to me. And I did, I remember just turning my head and looking at her and saying, -I-m gonna die. Goodbye, Joan,- and I did. It was then that I experienced... experienced what we call a near death experience. For me, there was nothing near about it; it was there. It was a total immersion in light, brightness, warmth, peace, security. I did not have an out of body experience. I did not see my body or anyone about me. I just immediately went into this beautiful bright light. It-s difficult to describe; matter of fact, it-s impossible to describe. Verbally, it cannot be expressed; it-s something which becomes you and you become it. I could say that I was peace, I was love, I was the brightness; it was part of me." Goodbye, my friend Life will never end And I feel like you, and I breathe all truth Love is the life breath of all I see Love is true life inside of me And I know you somehow as I hold you in my heart, in my heart There-s a fire in the sky, and I know it-s you There-s a light that-s so bright, and I know it-s you, I know it-s you And I dream like you -Cause I believe in truth For I was always there I will always be there "And it-s just so...just so beautiful. It was eternity, it-s like I was always there, and I will always be there, that my existence on earth was just a very brief instant. I could say that I was peace, I was love, I was the brightness; it was part of me."
