about

I have never been overly afraid of death. So long as I go peacefully that is. Even in Kerr I thought of death more as peace than a source of anxiety. At that point I figured that life was meaningless, so death certainly couldn’t be much different. It was just another mode of meaninglessness. I found, however, that many of my friends did fear death, and that several were fairly pre-occupied with it. On the other hand, I have always been terrified of spiders, irrationally so. I imagine the two fears are not entirely different, since at their heart they both involve something outside of our control. Therein resides the fear: that as proactive as we are the majority of life we take passively. What’s more is that most of the things that are of highest consequence to us are largely outside our control. Death is the ultimate example of this, since it could come at almost any time and for almost any reason, disregarding any feelings or preparations we may have had.

lyrics

Little spider in the corner of my house
Stay right where you are, I know what you’re about
If I look away you’ll bite me where it counts
And I can feel you creepin’ (I can feel you creepin’) I can feel you creepin’ down

The back of my neck
Where my hair stands on end
I’m losing my sense
Of discretion again

I don’t want to die
I don’t want to die
It’s not my time
It’s not my time
I don’t want to die
I don’t want to die
Everyone dies
Everyone dies

Little spider in the corner of my room
I know it’s not your fault, but I still blame it on you
Cuz I’m afraid of anything I can’t control
And I can feel you creepin’ (I can feel you creepin’) that subtle doubt into my soul

On the back of my neck
Where my hair stands on end
I’m losing my sense
Of direction again

I don’t want to die
I don’t want to die
It’s not my time
It’s not my time
I don’t want to die
I don’t want to die
Everyone dies
Everyone dies

I’ll die and then I’ll turn to dirt
From dust I came and to dust I will return
We die and then we turn to dirt
From dust we come and to dust we will return
