  • "I hereby commit my body to the ground
    sterilised and wrapped in plastic foil
    being an object of this space and time
    this body should remain concealed

    for it holds every disease
    ever exposed
    it holds all pain and death
    I could ever unleash

    beneath deceiving, fragile skin
    breathes the ever growing hate within

    since the first glimpse of my existence
    I have fed this greedy infection

    an aimless search for potential persistence
    found no escape from the fatal injection of life

    for it holds every disease
    ever exposed
    it holds all pain and death
    it could ever unleash

    beneath deceiving, fragile skin
    breathes the ever growing hate within

    I am the father

    I am the son
    my refugee soul has escaped
    this body depraved
    of final wishes I ask none
    but one
    now that I am gone
    lay thorns on my grave"
