The Art of Dying

There'll come a time
When all of us must leave here
There's nothing Sister Mary can do
Will keep me here with you
As nothing in this life that I've been trying
Can equal or surpass the art of dying
Do you believe me?

There'll come a time
When all of your hopes are fading
When things that seemed so very plain
Become an awful pain
Searching for the truth among the lying
And answered when you've learned
The art of dying

But if you want it, you must find it
But when you have it, there'll be no need for it
There'll come a time
When most of us return here
Brought back by our desire to be
A perfect entity
Living through a million years of crying
Until you've realized the art of dying
Do you believe me?

All Things Must Pass is a triple album by George Harrison recorded and released after the break-up of The Beatles. The first triple album by a solo artist
Harrison wrote the lyrics while he was still a Beatle, which was at the beginning of his lifelong spiritual journey.
Harrison followed Eastern religion and philosophies. One of those was reincarnation, which is described in the song's lyrics.
After a long battle with cancer, Harrison died on November 29, 2001. He was not afraid of death, as he believed it would take him to a better place.
Future Genesis drummer/singer Phil Collins played congas on this song. As a kid, Collins was an extra in the Beatles movie A Hard Day's Night. Collins was not credited on the original album, but is thanked in the liner notes when the album was reissued in 2000.
