Lay me down in darkness
Forsake me this mortal coil

Copulate propagate species multiply
Presupposed course of history
By not choosing to learn we refuse
Predestined - mass choice amputation

Immolated spectrum of the senses
Cauterization of thought and deed
Tragic doom - generations of flesh
Assimilate choice with the plight of carrion

Unlearned facts dictated before
Etched in transgressions of the past
Life is an execution
Consumed by a will to the grave

Human nature paramount apathy
Futile pipedreams of hindsight
Ignorance of expression - inaction
Death absolves this wasted existence

Shrouded by pallid primacy
Visceral images
Rotted hope - the heart of man

Forsake me this mortal coil

Vicious circles turning ever quickening
Ugliness and desolation
Terminal means cut shorter still
And even as I speak the walls crush in

Lay me down in darkness
Forsake me this mortal coil

Entropy - atrophied emaciation
And what I know and always have
Bleak horizon awaits my resolve
Subconscious pathway to extinction
