I take a knife
And insert it at the nape
And run it down
To the nexus

And let the insides
Push there way out

And says a thing to me
That I can comprehend?

Pump house
Air factory
Processing plant
To the nexus

I cut deep
look close
And dig my fingers in
To the whole bloody mess

Sorry folks
Don't want to bring you down
Wish I could be more positive
But the prognosis is not good

This story has no smiley face
This body looks done, down
To the nexus

Wipe off the blood
And cover it all with a sheet

I turn to the door
Open it to the sun
Drop my gloves, and go out
To receive the sun's stroke

Where am I walking to?
Haven't the foggiest
But I'll keep on walking
To the nexus
