Momento Mori

Momento Mori Remember you must die We must walk thru the valley of the skulls You can get there by using the proper tools Everlasting life is for the fools Old age can't be defied The grim reaper can't be denied He's waiting on the other side Knock on the door and he will reply Sometimes it up to you to decide Skin will wrinkle, hair will turn gray Better pray We are not here to stay We will need a walker and a beta blocker Hopefully we don't have a heart stopper Momento Mori Remember you must die Bones will become fragile and break with ease Trying to avoid getting a disease Just waiting for a permanent release From this painful existence that we call life Have had a heart attack not once but twice We are just waiting to rot in the ground Nothing but dirt that's all around Silence will be that horrific sound Momento Mori Remember you must die In the coffin we must lie No need to cry We need to be set free in able to fly!
