Dignity is the fourth studio album by American recording artist Hilary Duff. It was released on March 21, 2007, by Hollywood Records. After launching her third record Hilary Duff (2004), she experienced an eventful personal life, including a stalking incident, her parents' separation, and breaking up with her boyfriend. Consequently, Duff assumed an integral position in its production, co-writing almost every track with longtime collaborator Kara DioGuardi instead of her previously-limited involvement.
Death with Dignity Lyrics. Spirit of my silence, I can hear you But I’m afraid to be near you And I don’t know where to begin And I don’t know where to begin. Somewhere in the desert, there’s a forest And an acre before us But I don’t know where to begin But I don’t know where to begin Again, I've lost my strength completely, oh be near me Tired, old mare with the wind in your hair. Throughout this song (and the entire album) there are references to places and events in Oregon, the state where Sufjan Stevens estranged mother lived during Sufjan’s childhood. The instrumentation and production is sparse, featuring two harp-like guitars with an occasional addition of piano. The lyrics illustrate the loneliness and loss felt by Stevens after the death of his mother.

An alleged breach of dignity provides a way for third parties to pass judgment on actions that are knowingly and willingly chosen by the affected individuals. It thus offers a moralistic justification for expanded government regulation of science, medicine, and private life. And the Church's franchise to guide people in the most profound events of their lives-birth, death, and reproduction-is in danger of being undermined when biomedicine scrambles the rules
Before I begin, I want to give some context to the album as a whole (a lot of this information comes from this interview with Stevens). First, the title refers to the name of Stevens’ late mother and her ex-husband Lowell. Lowell serves as Stevens’ father figure despite after his divorce from Carrie and is currently involved with Stevens’s record label Asthmatic Kitty. As a child, Sufjan lived with his mother and stepfather for three summers in Oregon. The title of the song refers to the Death with Dignity Act, which was passed in Oregon in 1994 and allows for terminally ill patients to receive physician-aided death. We can only assume that this is the way that his mother left the world. With the title of the first track, Stevens has shown us the main subject of the work: the death of his mother. The first stanza of the work talks about the spirit of silence and how he is more or less afraid of it.
