How Very Dead
Carotid artery pierced Now the ritual can begin Our patient yet alive But not for long Formalin injection Indeed its overkill Curiosity has bested me A void that must be filled With lurid scenes of carnage Inflicting both fear and pain The thing about this doctor Not only am I in but I'm insane Out with the old In with the new Usurped a siege within you Constructs of tissue torn apart To spoil what's next I don't have the heart Violent convulsions From the mouth you're foaming red Transmission of all oxygen Has ceased in moments you'll be dead Is this not what you'd expected When you came to me for help My overlooked credentials A hippocratic oath I'd sworn in hell Internal organ failure Excruciating pain Observing deftly As formaldehyde doth fill your veins You will not survive Out with the old In with the new Usurped a siege within you Constructs of tissue torn apart How very dead you were from the start Stiff Your body hardening From the inside out Bleak The outlook not so good Your will can't save you now Cruelly your life has been defiled Out with the old In with the new Usurped a siege within you Constructs of tissues torn apart Embalming truly an art My art Enjoy now your beauty sleep
