Song Description

A wistful and humorous look at the afterlife. But also, about our power to choose, both to live in the face of death, and what death we shall have.

Story Behind the Song

Robert Moss, in Concious Dreaming, posits that perhaps we get to choose our afterlife. If that's true, Brook chooses the ancient Celtic place called, Summerland.

Some folks dream of Heaven

Some live in fear of Hell

You may like dancing with the Devil

Or believe Nirvana?s swell

But if there?s life hereafter

I?ve got other plans

Kiss goodbye to all my rage

I?m going to Summerland

Gonna live each moment

Until the brink of death

After I?ve crossed over

That?s when I?ll catch my breath

Rest, peace and reunion (With..)

With those who?ve gone beforehand

I?m going to the Isle of Youth

I?m going to Summerland

Leave behind my bones

My resentments, too

I?ll get me another set

After I?m renewed

I?m working and I?m learning

I?m reaching for the Sun

Like every living thing

As confused as anyone

I?m not ready to surrender

The ground on which I stand

But when__ it?s time__

I?m going to Summerland
