lyrics

What is there to be said? - What is there to be written?
Tell me

Lived a life of no accomplishment
Made no friends to part their thoughts
Pushed an estranged family away
No highs no lows, nothing of note

The expectation of something memorable to etch into the stone
Awash in mediocrity that words serve no purpose

Don’t waste your breath - don’t waste your intellect
In both life and in death
Equally vacant

Don’t waste your time - don’t waste your empathy
In both life and in death
Unremarkable

Inter the body into the earth
The cheap coffin will decompose
But even the worm infested lacquer
Is more remarkable than the corpse inside

A humdrum collection with average value
Left in storage for nobody to claim

All societal procedures are over
The deed is done
The empty funeral home is closed
The soil is sunk

Don’t waste your stone - don’t waste your equipment
In both life and in death
No epitaph needed

Don’t waste your dirt - don’t waste your acreage
In both life and in death
A forgotten crypt

The gravestone bears no name
For no one knows who lays in waste
An unetched stone sits on display
To mark this final resting place
