antemortem thanatopraxis lyrics – haemorrhage

prone on the mortuary slab – naked and sedated
horrified – undergone my sick thanatopraxis
removing viscera – purging fluids i extract
arteries i deplete – cavities filled with formalin

antemortem disembovelment

cotton in nostrils and throat – slow suffocation
muscles and fendons i snap to dislocate the stiffened

antemortem disembovelment

face features molded from wax – grotesque disfigurement
effacing surgical scars – necroplastic surgery

glued eyelids – hairstyled scalp
tied-shut mouth – face made-up
lavaged and perfumed
the corpse is now ready to be inhumed

antemortem disembowelment
