The Lyrics

Funeral Directors are now thinking outside the "box" (pun intended) with a wide range of new burial plans. One can have their carbon extracted to make jewelry, be wrapped in a "Mushroom Suit" with spores that speed up decomposition, have your ashes put into a salt urn for burial in rivers or at sea, be buried in an eco-friendly decomposing coffin to act as fertilizer for a tree, and there are plans to lauch ashes to the moon!!!
[Verse 1]
Health is worsening and I’m going down
Got to plan my funeral today
Heard some new ideas from this company
Thinking outside the “box” there are new ways

[Chorus 1] x2
When I’m gone
When I’m gone
They’re gonna treat me when I’m gone
Decomposing spore-wrap outerwear
Or carbon jewels for folks to care (for), oh
They’re gonna treat me when I’m gone

[Verse 2]
Health is worsening and I’m going down
Funeral options- many to choose
They‘ve got salt urns for the rivers, eco-coffins as fertilizer
I’m so confused as what I should do???

[Chorus 2]
When I’m gone
When I’m gone
They’re gonna treat me when I’m gone
Send my ashes to the moon
Designer Death displaces gloom, oh
They’re gonna treat me when I’m gone
Note: Even the Hearses are being upgraded as mobile showcases! Hey, Pimp My Hearse!!!
