Internal Landscapes
Lyrics Anathema

[Spoken words:]
And I felt myself going. I was in a great deal of pain. It was a very frightening experience, I began to slip. I just started to 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 it 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 any one about me… I just immediately went into this beautiful bright light.
It's difficult to describe, as a matter of fact is 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
Love will never end

And I feel like you
And I breathe all truth

Love is the life breath of all I see
Love is the true light inside of me

And I know you somehow
As I hold you in my heart
In my heart

(Senses following me)

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
And I will always be there…

[Spoken words:]
It's 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 very brief, instant…
I could say that I was peace, I was love, I was the brightness, it was part of me.
