3 major influences on this track.
1) The final words of Rutger Hauer in Blade Runner are: 'Time to Die'.
2) In 'Axis: Bold as Love', Jimi Hendrix says: I'm the one that's got to die when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life the way I want to'.
3) In The Who 's My Generation, Pete Townsend wrote: 'Hope I die before I get OLD.' To which my response is:
'Fuck Pete Townsend and the song that he sung. I don't wanna die while I'm still young…'
It makes a lot more sense the older you get…
