What is this, which oozes life from rotting sleep?
Is this carrion flower all we ever can aspire to bequeath?
A parting gift bestowed unto the worms

With every breath, I suck the essence from the world
With every step I may crush a life I’ll never know
So take this carnal legacy
Share in this inheritance of bones

And sew my marrow in the soil

So in the end, all that remains is that which dwells within the tapestry of others
And so I gladly throw my atoms to the ravenous abyss

And if I left a morsel of myself would it ripen in your tableau of design
Is it mine to give, or have I simply borrowed from your infinite resources, one last time?

So is this putrefied benevolence a dream?
A rank mirage, a murder dressed as charity, an insincere refrain
And does this even matter, this perpetual succession
Always severs our intentions from the soul

Do the vultures wonder why?

So in the end, all that remains is that which dwells within the memory of others
Yet even this is as mayflies to the storm
As all in turn must satiate this ravenous abyss
