Tonight I bathe in lavender oil
And I prepare my skin to be so smooth and soft
I shall wear my most favored items
And I shall paint my lips red
So that if they have to pronounce me as deceased
At least I will look my best
And maybe there will be less work to do, when they lay me down to rest

I have never enjoyed the thought of a burial
Worms in my eye sockets
Ants in my navel
Beetles in my genitalia
And maggots in my gums, so playful
It scares me more then death itself

So perhaps I shall be lit aflame
Or cast adrift upon the open sea
But whatever it is that you decide
Please don't bury me

I never liked the dark. I never liked the cold
I would rather be chopped into tiny bits
Scattered across the globe
That way when they went looking for me
I would always be far from home

Perhaps I should specify:
I never wanted to die
But in this life of imperfection
We are all faced with a daunting task
And so when my time comes, I beg you
Please don't put me in a casket

But if tomorrow never comes
If I never wake from my sleep
Know that I always loved
And some butterflies we can never keep

I fade away
I fade away

I fade far, far away
hmmm

"I will not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
I will face my fear.
I will let it pass through me.
Where the fear has gone,
there shall be nothing.
Only I will remain."

This makes me damn sad.

You might be frightened of what's coming, but don't let yourself go.

We're with you, don't be scared.
