Even though the man was shot eight times in the back,
Bleeding and dying right there on the sidewalk as feckless police officers looked on,
He had enough life left inside his mind to realize that this was...
The End Of The Road!
THE END OF THE ROAD
The dead man concluded that the light at the end of the tunnel of life is brighter as life grows dimmer.
Some of the voyagers of a long hard life of ups and downs... seeing more ups... see the light in focus.
Others... the ones who live in the harsher downs, more than the ups... may not see the light at all.
It is all metaphysical bullshit, in the end... he doesn't even know it he wants to enter the goddamn light!
