    I've never given this much thought. First song that popped into my head was an early Rush song, Fly By Night.


    "Airport scurry flurry faces
    Parade of passers by
    People going many places
    With a smile or just a sigh
    Waiting waiting pass the time
    Another cigarette
    Get in line - gate thirty-nine
    The time is not here yet....."

    Why try? I know why
    The feeling inside me says it's time I was gone
    Clear head, new life ahead
    I want to be king now not just one more pawn

    Fly by night, away from here
    Change my life again
    Fly by night goodbye my dear
    My ship isn't coming and I just can't pretend

    Moon rise, thoughtful eyes
    Staring back at me from the window beside
    No fright or hindsight
    Leaving behind that empty feeling inside

    Start a new chapter
    Find what I'm after
    It's changing every day
    The change of a season
    Is enough of a reason
    To want to get away

    The other part:
    Quiet and pensive
    My thoughts apprehensive
    The hours drift away
    Leaving my homeland
    Playing a lone hand
    My life begins today

    Lyrics By Neil Peart Music by Geddy Lee

    Not yet.

    I remember a song from a funeral that many sang along:

    "I've been traveling a day.

    I've been traveling a year.

    I've been traveling a lifetime to find my way home.

    Home is where the heart is.

    Home is where the heart is.

    My heart is with you."

    Cheap wine and a 3 day growth by Cold Chisel!!! nah seriously, i want, as my Union Jack draped coffin is wheeled down to the front, The Lark Ascending by Vaughn Williams, and as i get cremated i want the theme from M.A.S.H. to be played. Then I want my ashes loaded up into a big firework and at my wake, i want as i ascend into the starry night to a conclusion of colourful explosion, Higher by Van Halen! Man, i might have to fake my own death, i reckon i'd have a great send off!

    I'll be wearing jeans, biker boots, a leather jacket, and a t-shirt that says "I'd rather be sailing." My pallbearers will be 6 women of questionable reputation. One of the songs will be Personal Jesus by Marilyn Manson and another one will be Norman Greenbaum's Spirit in the Sky. Also Solace by Scott Joplin.
