About a year ago, I sat down and wondered what the feeling would be like to know you're going to die real soon, to know that after your final breath, your body will go through an adventurous path to the morgue, while your spirit is somewhere probably being judged by the ruler of all as you reminisce through all the times. What I came up with was this jumble.

Hello, goodbye

welcome to the other side

Eclipse, time flies

might just have to say goodbye

O2, low key

over on the count of three

Mark the ashes, body baker

paronoia, undertaker.

Might have to say your goodbye,

'cause the time is telling and you must be going,

You might have to say your goodbye,

'cause it's gonna be over right before you know it.

Fresh air, smoke-screen

bodybag in the steam

Old man, rocking chair

holstered in a puppet stare

Ambulance, coming fate

racing pulse, heart rate

Just caught in the outbreak

imminently far too late.

Concrete, black & white

motionless through all goodbyes

Suited in, furled in

covered over, cold skin

Tic toc, there is no escape

Time will tell when you face the thunder

Mama nature's got your number

In the dirt, you'll go under.

Might have to say your goodbye,

'cause the time is telling and you must be going,

You might have to say your goodbye,

'cause it's gonna be over right before you know it.

Stoned cold, solitude

cascaded in the brood
Finished was the alpha

Genesis Omega

rot flesh, bloody mesh

linked to the maggot circus

Lumination, firefly

cranium, ant pie

Birth, light

death, night

afterlife's a path to fight through

Year rounds dull scary

broken bunkers, cemetary

Might have to say your goodbye,

'cause the time is telling and you must be going,

You might have to say your goodbye,

'cause it's gonna be over right before you know it

You know it, so you might have to say your goodbye
