Another song where Bellamy is in character, dealing with his atheism. As the title suggests, it concerns the thoughts of a dying atheist, scared by his non-belief in an afterlife. Now, at the moment of his death, he must face the disheartening non-existence he will soon inhabit.

Just before the bridge, at 2:04, Wolstenholme can be heard jumping into the pool at Grouse Lodge recording studio as Howard hits his cymbals.

Written by: Matthew Bellamy Produced by: Rich Costley

    This song gives me a peaceful feeling, my perception is some of us are already dead, some are in hell some in heaven, and since I didn't ask to be born I get to the point when Matt sings "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" I get extremely upset because for some of us, death is all we want.

    I agree with J-e-r-p-p-A. Before I even started listening to this song I thought it was gonna be awesome just because of the title and its subject matter. Turns out to be rather generic, drums are nothing special, the upbeat tempo of the song doesn't match with the mood and the subject matter of the song. In my opinion this song could be much slower, more melancholy and have a longer instrumental bridge section with some symphonic string parts in it. Not a bad song overall, they could have put a lot more work into it, just like they did with songs such as New Born, Citizen Erased, Stockholm Syndrome, Butterflies And Hurricanes and so many more.

    As a Post-a-theist, this song is kind of obsolete for me.... ^ ^

    Great song, and a bit underrated.
