Love. Joy. Longing.
Each were a windswept kiss of exhilaration, sweetness, and melancholy upon his brow.
He was feeling emotion.. as though for the first time...
But just as suddenly as his visions began, the colors started to wash away and disappear to reveal a shocking sight.
The lush colors he saw were no more, and now only pure light illuminated his entire field of vision.
And all around him, as far as he could see..
He saw luminous beings.

"We finally found you" resonated and echoed through the chasms of his mind

The voice he heard triggered something.
He was suddenly transported back to the fateful moment of his death where he had seen these beings and heard their words.

A flurry of strong and uncomfortable emotions gripped him.
Pain, Fear, Resentment, Denial.
They each bore down on him with a gravity he had never felt.

He felt himself begin to free-fall.
And as he fell further and further, the light began to fade from his sight to be once again replaced by deep darkness.
But just before it was gone completely, he heard a faint voice...

"We're almost ready"


Wait... For it
We're almost ready
To make up our minds

Out the corner of your eye
Limited by our peripheral vision
And from waking dreams they may arise
Hypnagogic Hallucinations

Wait... For it
We're almost ready
To make up our minds

Are they proof of the afterlife?
Nothing but nonsense to the modern skeptic
But are we really just that sure?
Human perception is simply pure?

Wait... For it
We're almost ready
To make up our MIND
