so let it be rotten so let it be done lyrics – exhumed

desensitized to the necrotized, a trompe-l’oeil made zombified
mocking death mask for the mortified -deformed
in formaldehyde death now baptized – reborn
the sickening sight now sanitized
in celebration of the demised
death unrevealed – decay clumsily disguised
but behind the lurid, leering eyes
decomposition will arise
so let it be rotten – so let it be done
behind the shroud decrepitude begun
so let it be rotten – so let it be done
so let it be rotten
so let it be rotten – so let it be done
so let it be rotten

immured deep within the absurd, beyond the pale obscenely blurred
rigor mortis sets in undeterred – putrescent
embalmed in lugubrious repose, as from within you decompose
unmoved by orchid, lily, or rose – quiescent
the distasteful scent lurks just beneath
the truth of death lay out of reach
its cold caress – would curdle funeral wreaths
but beyond the mendacious mask you’ll see
putrefaction’s perfidy
so let it be rotten – so let it be done
within the casket, decay has claimed its throne
so let it be rotten – so let it be done
death worms its way into the corpse its work begun
so let it be rotten – let it be done
