The heart is beating but slowing down
The heart is dying losing its crown
Losing it’s meaning as it slowly decays
We were all waiting for this fateful day
The life of the heart slipping like sand
As it says goodbye to it’s lifelong band

The organs it’s worked with for much of it’s life
Are being destroyed by somebodies knife
The heart is now drumming it’s final beats
As the lungs are now wailing the tune of defeat
The sadness and pain is starting to show
As there won’t be another tomorrow

The knife is still stuck in the heart’s dead centre 
Where only the bravest of tools dare to enter
The brain is now dead, though it’s texts still come through
As it signals the death of the rest of it’s crew
The heart dies soon after, the leader, the master
The other organs die bravely in the disaster.

The knife will lie in the heart forevermore
And so will the blood that spilled on that floor
But what I can say without a doubt
Is that this man chose the easy way out
