"To Live Is To Die" is another one. What makes this song special is that the band didn't sully their feelings by putting them in words. In the entire 10 minute song, the only lyrics are the following poem written by Cliff shortly before his death:
"When a man lies, he murders a part of the world.
These are the pale deaths, which men miscall their lives.
All this I cannot bare to witness any longer.
Can not the Kingdom of Salvation take me home?"
- The first part of the poem was written by Paul Gerhardt. Cliff provided the last two lines.
- The first ever live performance of "To Live is to Die" is intensely depressing.
