** And of course the last stanza of the eponymous song, which wraps the album up quite nicely:
--> ''I am not afraid to keep on living\\
I am not afraid to walk this world, alone\\
Honey, if you stay, I'll be forgiven\\
Nothing you can say can stop me going home.''

The Patient fits gothic tropes by being a flawed hero, one who recognizes his horrible faults on death's door, and is thus unable to make peace with his former lover and his mother, and on "Disenchanted he ultimately makes peace with himself, and dies in a penitent state, in the grand tradition of many tragic heroes.

** However, most of the songs seem to be from the dying patient's perspective. The context of these lyrics is different of the patient is saying these things to himself. If you look at it that way, it's much sadder, as it sounds like he's trying to tell himself that he sucked in life and convince himself that nobody should miss him too much when he's gone.
