This is the full song version of the loop Darkened Horizons.
"As you lay on your deathbed and begin to wonder 'why, oh why', open up your mind to the new horizon; to the dark horizon."
Tell me what you think!!!
Apparently not everyone understood the symbolism in the song's lyrics. The song is supposed to be a journey starting when a person who is dying, on his last breath who transcends reality, our reality, and at the end reaches peace, or Heaven.
The term Dark Horizon is a play on words. The horizon, dictionary definition, is the line where the rounded surface of the Earth meets the sky. I meant it to be understood symbolically as meaning where your Earthly self meets your transcendent self. This only occurs at the time of death.
Why is it a "Dark" Horizon? People who have been through near death experiences commonly describe it as going through a tunnel of light and eventually out running the light itself. Once you outrun light, there is only darkness, that is until you fully transcend into the sky.
