1. Disregard

I have often thought to myself
Why some people don’t eat flesh
Is it the morals that we’re taught?

Lurking deep beneath our skin
Bodies that are constant sources
Rich in power and in strength
Human form is far removed from
What we like to think of it as…

Where did the concept of eating human flesh being so repulsive come from?
There’s got to be an even better way

For others to think of what they might place upon their plate without disregard
I wish someone could someday explain to me this strange concept
For like others, I am mortal and don’t have all the answers

2. Failure

We are what’s left behind
I can feel It call my name
These worlds that I have taken
Will stay with me as lies

No they won’t leave their victim
I know that we are on their list of deeds
The decomposing lifeform
Our tortured earthly souls are waiting to be freed

Their day has only just begun
And any killing bird stays to the bitter end
They take the pain that you have given to me
If only I could bring against this world the feeling of myself

Now choking, it’s not safe, you’re running from help
If I was blind, I’d see the strain of being here embodied
To be a victim of the earth and now I’m trapped inside

It’s too late for us now, the wheels are in motion
Heartbroken regrets, I fear you’re out of time
Death is coming, your life’s a failure
Now we’re watching as you die

3. The Principles And Practices Of Embalming

Wanted to be the first technician on a cranial autopsy
The principles and practice of embalming

Examination of all the head and before the incision
Cavities might allow blood to escape through the veins
Causing change to the original condition of the brain

An incision, is first made through
The scalp flaps and in line with the skull
A double V-shaped cut is then made
By sawing through the bones of the skull

Open the skull
Dura is spilt
The brain is removed for examination
By cutting it loose with a long bladed knife
Tightly ligate the ends of the veins
Drill a small hole through the back of the skull
Puncture the scalp
Insert through this hole a section of tubing
To be used as a drain
Hold this in place with a safety pin inside
Since it is physically impossible to prevent all leakage into the skull
We have developed a procedure which eliminates problems
If offers the hope that what was required to fix the head is gone

There’s no frustration to show our work once it’s strengthened

Drill and wire the calvarium to the skull on both sides
Twist the wires tightly so the skull will be unable to slip

No autopsy may be made unless authority has been secured
Coroner may order an autopsy to seek cause of death
Or if the cause of his death is not yet apparent

An incision is first made through the scalp flaps and in line with the skull
A double V-shaped cut is then made
By sawing through the bones of the skull

4. No One Wins

There’ll be a time
Where I can take what they’ve taught and make it work
This would be a better place if you could free your mind of thought
Though to be in this place, life has abandoned you
World that we now live in has changed so rapidly
There’s no need for equality, equality

All the dreams, ideals you fought for, waiting now for someone else
It’s not real, that you’re feeling parts of life’s exterior
I can see your body rot, gaze upon your cornea
No one wins, we end together, values, visions dead forever

Hate to be nothing, why do you abandon me
Words without actions, lies, they mean nothing
Can’t you all see the light that waves in front of you?
This could be a mirror of the only ever way that we’ve known

I can take what they’ve taught and make it work
This would be a better place if you could free your mind of thought
Though to be in this place, life has abandoned you
World that we now live in has changed so rapidly
There’s no need for equality, equality

5. Death Reveals

Is death freedom from this world?
The ones who knew you will soon forget
That you have now attained what you wanted
So why should it be haunting you?

As the generations past and time leaves you behind
Existence will be now erased from other people’s minds
So that once a living being affecting many other lives
I can see that all you feel is pleasure

Are you unaware that there is comfort found in pain?
The endlessness of all the thoughts compounding in your head
Shows you the tragedy of willingly, wanting to be here
Existence is meaningless in our world

Hurt that frequents your mind, a constant memory
Of a life that is not always wanting
To be free of all the pain and hatred
I can almost feel it, why can’t you?

Death is to be free of and to cause ultimate pain
Life is fleeting moments of regrets and poor decision making
So many untruths to sort through, never knowing why
One day I shall understand why we don’t

Can’t understand the mortality of man?
Why do I use words of hate to fund communication?
Does the perfect world exist already, in my mind?
I can see it, I can feel it
Is death freedom from this world?
The one’s who knew you will soon forget
That you have now attained what you wanted
So why should it be haunting you?

Death is to be free of and to cause ultimate pain
Life is fleeting moments and regrets and poor decision making
So many untruths to sort through never knowing why
One day I shall understand why we don’t

Are you unaware that there is comfort found in pain?
The endlessness of all the thoughts compounding in your head
Shows you the tragedy of willingly, wanting to be here
Existence is meaningless in our world

6. Compromise

I see no chance
Relying on myself
I take away responsibility
They drain my life
I purge the pot they breed in

First I must take pride and not ponder
A day to stay
Don’t underestimate
I take away
The task that you failed
I ache but I, I fought them till it didn’t matter
For they must change now or before I burst

Those around me
Are incomprehensible
Is harder to bear with my backache
Fortunately I take great pride
I’m before my time
No demise
Compromise
I can see you’re watching me
But could you even understand my pain?
Watching, what is it in your brain that never gets it?
One day I’ll disappear to the answer locked in my head
That you’ll never see or feel a consumer

The more the body is pierced, tortured, wounded, humiliated
The more complete is man’s victory over pain
The greater man’s victory over pain
The greater his victory over the flesh

I see that they
That people are a plague
No sympathy
No liability
They drain my life
We’ll see the life they’re living
Once I stop all I’m doing for them

7. Betrayal

No one survives
Against hateful minds

I can feel the pressure growing
Last time you walked away
This time there will be no one there waiting to take your place
Think not that the world now owns you
Think not of your despair
Rise up and take their power
Do not hesitate or fear

For them, a distant memory
Waiting with baited breath
I see through parts of your life
Why do you lie to me?

One of the reasons why
The movement began to move executions behind prisons
Is the effect that it would have on young people
Their parents would take them to witness an execution
Thinking that perhaps it would have some salutary effect
They would hold ’em up so that they could get a good glimpse and all of that
But I found I guess 30 or 40 cases, where after witnessing an execution
A child of tender years, would hang a playmate or hang themselves

We must distrust each other, it is our best defence
From those who seek to specialise in betrayal
There’s no comfort in freedom
For what we seek is pain
Your life has now come undone
I’ll watch you beg for more

8. Last Mistake

The box was taken to the edge of the earth
There it will be safe from all the evils that exist on this world
To feel all of life has been talked about
You’re in trouble
You’ve got yourself to blame
Forces are pushing away
With forty people
You fought to free your demons
He tested your mind
To be the leader
Shame made you crawl back again from me to breathe
And be a man

Born without the concept of hate
Taught to act afraid
I’ve seen your last mistake
Start to learn though pain
What you’ve taken before’s
What you mustn’t break
I’ve seen your last mistake
There has to be a better way
Better way
I need more power to hate
Turned around by failure
I’ve seen your last mistake
Turned around by…

Man’s brutality and his inability to feel empathy
With misery is one of mankind’s worst sins
It is the very basis of human degradation
And if man can create so much suffering
What right does he have to complain when he himself suffers?

Born without the concept of hate
Taught to act afraid
I see your last mistake
Carved in my sore head
Thought that people would learn
But to my surprise
I’ve seen your last mistake
We have to find a better way
A better way
I need more power to hate
Turned around by failure
I’ve seen your last mistake
Turned around by…

9. Painless

Memory apart after opening
Feel nothing, the dream is gone
Spinning in a mind overflow
Dream what reality cannot
Ever make you understand
A vision to bring back the sense of the world
Deranged senses become defences
These are the visions I don’t want to keep
The mind tortures itself constantly without meaning

Painless
Means out of me
Every trace
Burn the skin
Sow the heart with salt
All thought gone

Painless
Means out of me
Every trace
Burn the skin
Sow the heart with salt
All thought gone
Numb is peace
Numb is peace

This is the dawn in which the prey take courage and turn on the predator
It is the dawn in which the underdog finds the strength to rebel
Nothing disoriented the mighty more than the attack of those how have always feared

Them in the past
Can’t allow one to be what we cannot
We’d hurt somehow
They saw your dreams
Which means they saw your fear
Which means that they must disappear
Hold the matches
Scared is tough
When you’re numb
The fear’s enough
When you’re tired
Sleep forever
We have work now
These are the visions I don’t want to keep

Painless
Means out of me
Every trace
Burn the skin
Sow the heart with salt
All thought gone

Painless
Means out of me
Every trace
Burn the skin
Sow the heart with salt
All thought gone
Numb is peace
Numb is peace

10. Pure Hatred

In the brain we’ve found a role
Detach your life from mind control
Evade life of being ruled
Destroy
The parts that lie unused
Permanence
Eternity
Surgery
Will set you free
Vacant eyes and lack of care
Now one with humanity

Hate
Pure
Pure
Answer
No-one ever
Again
Pure
Hate
Pure
Children sew their minds shut
Answer
No-one ever

In the brain
Is a directive
Brain found to be
Grossly defective
The soul, it sees
Sees through the eyes
It’s time is up
Lobotomise
Mutilation
Drilling holes in
Trepanation
Evolution
Ten percent
Is all we use
You need it like a hole in the head

11. Paradox

I can’t take this
Forever I’ve wanted to be a lot more than just a person
Not to play on the side of the humans
We’re forced to live and die in this system
I can’t see the logic that we are taught
Pleasure is attained through freedom
Pain is the answer
Try to escape from the body

Welcome to the paradox
Cannot take this
I thought that pain was my saviour
Living a lie from what I’m thinking
I’m chasing my life which must end right here

How can I free myself from this world that I’m forced to live in?
We’ll see at the end that this idea of freedom that you hold to yourself
Can never retrieve all the things that were meant to be

If they’re causing us pleasure
I want to be the pain causing the change to our race
When it hurts you
I want to be the pain causing the change to our life
When it hits
I want to be what I am, not the circumstance of how I was born
I cannot take this, I will not take this

I want to be the pain causing the change to our race
I want to be the pain causing the change to our life
I want to be what I am, not the circumstance of how I was born
I cannot take this, I will not take this
Why should I take anymore?

13. Corporal Jigsore Quandary

”Identifying the bodies which are decomposed, dismembered, skeletonised pose very serious problems. We’ve had many cases in this department where a body has been found in pieces, or decomposed, and we’ve been able to put things together. Yes, the head, the upper part of the body, in a very badly decomposed state…”

Excised and anatomised, deviscerated disarray
The torso diverged with pride
Deftly amputated, evulsed limbs now defunct
The trunk imbrued, tatty stumps used as lugs
For a chondrin puzzle so quaint
Head and body decollate
A heaving mass so quiescent

Scattered and scrambled, your teasement grows
A bloody caricature to make whole
A squirming grisly jigsaw, detrital fragments fit so snug
That missing piece will leave you stumped
Totally desassembled, nicely sliced and diced
A cold mannequin once resembled
Real cranium teaser, carved from flesh and bone
So mystifying

Battered and diffused, with placating blows
A human jigsaw to make whole
A sequacious pattern which once fitted so snug
Joining together each dubious lump
Ravaged disassembly, neatly cubed and diced
A cold mannequin reassembled
Astute brain teaser, incorporate flesh and bone
So mortifying

An incessant game methodically made
With each cumulative piecing of commensated meat

Bi-manual reconstruction, eldritch problem complete
A convented effigy
A pathological toy, each chunk rigorously
Inter mortis locking, as you pathogenically rot
Such a perplexing task
To fit the remains in the casket
Uliginous mess so quiescent

An incessant game methodically made
With each cumulative piece of commensated meat
