lyrics

This is my donation. To science.

I want to soak in formaldehyde for a few years.
I want to be cut up by practicing doctors,
then re-stitched and readied for the next class.
I want to be probed and poked and pointed at.
I want to be preserved.

I'm donating my body to science.
Why be buried or burned? Why frozen?
I want my organs exposed.

And I want to be able to feel it.
I want to be conscious
when they lower me into the preservative tank.
I want to feel fluids,
rushing into my eyes and ears and orifices.
I want to feel them coursing down my throat.
I want to feel it ballooning up my stomach and lungs.
I want to feel full of eternal life.

And you can feel me too. Forever.

I'm donating my body to science.
Why be thrown into a tomb
or shoved in an urn?
I don't want to be put in a vault
or buried at sea.
I want my organs exposed.

And I want to teach people a lesson.
With my smell.

I want to show people the real me.
I want them to get their hands wet
when they dig inside me.
I want to make people to laugh.
I want to make them gag.
I want to give people to have nightmares.

And I want people to be jealous.
I want them to wonder where the hell I am right now.
And I want to see the looks on their faces
when my skin is peeled back.

I want people to see me for what I really am.
I want people to see what they really are, and can be.
And I want to live on and on.
On and on --
groping inside of them --
on and on --
just like they grope inside of me,
searching
probing
groping.

This is my living dead will.

"Arnzen doesn’t just read or recite his stories; he shouts, snarls, whispers and groans his way through (and) adds music to the mix to create an aural landscape of terror like nothing you’ve heard before. Don’t miss this.” -- MicroHorror.com
