You’ll have to excuse the confronting topic of this song..

I found Kris Sky’s version of Chris Hornes “The Art of Dying”,
and purposely didn’t listen to the original version or lyrics but after going to two funerals and a birth this week I choked up just reading the song title and sat down in the studio with a stiff drink and let it all pour out…

You can listen to the original full mixed track here

They say death doesn’t come with any instructions..
(but its in the key of Am)

There are two vocal files here, a wet preview MP3 and a lossless dry flac

Here’s the lyrics;

“The Art of Dying”

Theres many people tell you how to live your life
Not many give directions on the way to die
go out with a wimper
or some thunder in the sky?
not any room for practice
to perfect the art to die.

I ask the cat that sits beside me how to die
he’s done it maybe eight times before from window high
do I run away avoid the end
dont face that last black tie?
or face the reaper with his laughter
look him in the eye?

Is there more than crying?
To this art of dying?

Sit beside my Father and its been a while
remember all the good times
held his hand with just a smile
Hes lived a life of colour, noise and fought that extra mile
and in the next room cries the first breath of my newborn child

Is there more to crying
to this art of dying?
If I said its good (I’m lying)
this art of dying
art of dying

Ive watched a friend get taken by the needle for a high
and cried out loud to everyone
the day he finally died
So many demons caught between the narrow and the wide
don’t know if I can find the strength to learn the art to die

Is there more than crying?
To this art of dying?
if they said its easy (they lied)
this art of dying.

Oohhhhh
Crying!
this art of dying
Oohhhhh
Crying!
to this art of dying
is there more than crying
to this art of dying?
Crying! Crying!
To this art of dying

(don’t know if I can find the strength to learn the art to die)
Crying! Crying! Crying!
To this art of dying
Crying! Crying! Crying!
Crying! Crying! Crying!
to this art of dying
