Mortality

Hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil

Fine tendrils of hair sprout from my ears

They dance in the wind like delicate spears

One day I believe they will whisper to me

Your life was the sum of your fears

Hear no evil,

Hear no evil,

In the end we are all equalled

Hear no evil,

Hear no evil,

In the end we are all equalled

My crumbling teeth still bite on my tongue

In spiteful revenge for those it has stung

One day all I speak will be poison to me

And I'll be glad when the chatter is done

Speak no evil,

Speak no evil,

In the end we are all equalled

Speak no evil,

Speak no evil,

In the end we are all equalled

The little red veins in my eyeballs spread

Knitting a gossamer blood fuelled web

One day all I'll see is the anger in me

But by then, I guess I'll be dead

See no evil,

See no evil,

In the end we are all equalled

See no evil,

See no evil,

In the end we are all equalled

Speak no evil,

Speak no evil,

In the end we are all equalled

Hear no evil,

Hear no evil,

In the end we are all equalled

See no evil,

See no evil,

In the end we are all equalled

Your own decay is your best friend

For we are equalled in the end
