What Comes In Like A Thief In The Night? DEATH!

You know what Im into?? Im really big on songs with meaning especially ones where the meaning of the song is kind of hidden so you have to listen to it over and over to get what its about. Well I just listened to this song called "The Thief In The Night" and its a pretty real song. It makes you think, it makes you wonder. Guess what it makes you think about? Death. Sounds like a sweet song doesnt it? Its not really about death and like hell and stuff, its not a heavy metal song neither. It kinda sounds like a song Tupac would be into for real. If you read the lyrics (click hear) and/or listen to the song (click hear) when you get around to the 3rd verse, if youre really listening the song starts to hit you hard. I finished listening to it and just started thinking, wow no one really appreciates life like they should. In the song Aceyalone says that theres three stages in life, die dying and dead. I agree with that beyond mere agreement, Were young and we know we're all gonna die, we get older and we start to realize that we're dying and then before we know it, dead. Thats it. So easy, so quickly. You wait for it but it comes so fast you dont even see it and then there, dead. Like a thief in the night. What a way to use that sentence huh? Death comes like a thief in the night. Doesnt make much sense til you really think about it. Many people are afraid of death but what are they really afraid of, death or what happens after death? What happens after death? Way too many answers to that question for me to get into, it really depends on your religion, spirtual state and moral status. So far, the way Ive been brought up into christianity I believe that everybody goes somewhere when they die and that somewhere is based on what you were doing while you were alive. Heaven or hell. Now, that doesnt mean live your life in a box and give everything you have away so you can say "Oh, Ive been a good person so Im going to heaven". Im not gonna start preaching or anything but if you make a positive difference in the world, again not saying you have to find the cure to cancer but if you can do just a little something thatll change one or more persons life for the better you'll definetly go where you deserve. Im gonna end this post now because its getting kinda long and short and sweet is usually what I try to go for so...yeah, Im ending this post but not this topic. Follow up post coming soon so check back in...soon~

"Overly Anxious Can't Just Wait
To See When Death Is Gonna Pull You to Your Fate
It's Inevitable There's no Escape
There's no Mistake
Every Time a Life Is Given It's Another One You Have to Take
Then Your Electricity and And Your Energy's Released
Born Into Another Soul After Your Physical's Deceased
May You Forever Rest in Peace
Although Your Current Is Concurrent There Is no Deturrent
You Will Cease to Be no More
The War Has Been Won
The Warrior Is Rested and Your Duty Here Is Done
Just When You Think You're Having Fun
It'll Snatch You Up and Run
For a Second You Appreciate the Sun
For a Half a Second You Appreciate the Stars
For a Half a Second You Reflect On Who You Are
And What You Where
And in a Flash It's All a Blur"
-Aceyalone from "The Thief In The Night"

very thorough examination of the do you think someone (g-d?) is tallying up all your actions and determining if you do more good than bad in your lifetime? another question that's been bugging me: why is it that such bad things happen to good people? i mean the holocaust, MLK, children getting run over by cars...that type of stuff. if you really believe that someone is watching what we do, how come that someone lets such bad things happen?
