"Come with us speeding through the night~ As fast as any bird in flight~ Silhouettes against the Mother Moon~ We will be there soon"
Can’t even shout, can’t even cry
The Gentlemen are coming by
Looking in windows, knocking on doors
They need to take seven and they might take yours
Can’t call to mom, can’t say a word
You’re going to die screaming but you won’t be heard.
Wednesday morning vanitas. (Taken with Instagram)

Carved from wood, this figure shows a male corpse inside a coffin. The body is in advanced decay and worms are spilling from the stomach. The coffin is a memento mori. This is an object that reminds the viewer of the shortness of human life and the inevitability of death.
