No wealth no ruin no silver no gold

 
I'll fix your feet til you can't walk
I'll lock your jaw til you can't talk
I'll close your eyes so you can't see
This very air, come and go with me
I'm death I come to take the soul
Leave the body and leave it cold
To draw up the flesh off of the frame
Dirt and worm both have a claim


---


(Oh the young, the rich or poor
Hunger like me you know
No wealth, no ruin, no silver no gold)

oh what is this that i can see
with icy hands taking hold of me
is death I come to get the soul
to leave the body, leave it cold

oh death oh death, how can it be
that i must come and go with thee
oh death oh death, how can it be
i'm unprepared, i'm unprepared for eternalty

you fix my eyes so i can't see
you lock lock my jaw so i can't talk
you're stretching my limbs, you're making me cold
you're robbin' my body of my soul

oh death oh death, how can it be
that i must come and go with thee
of death of death how can it be
i'm unprepared, i'm unprepared for eternalty

I'm death I have come to get the soul
to leave the body, leave it cold
to let the feel drop from the brain
to let the worms have their claim

oh death oh death, how can it be
that i must come and go with thee
of death of death how can it be
i'm unprepared, i'm unprepared for eternalty

you can have my gold, you can have my land
if you will remove your icy hand
don't want your land, don't want your gold
money cannot buy your soul

oh death oh death, how can it be
that i must come and go with thee
of death of death how can it be
i'm unprepared, i'm unprepared for eternalty

"to let the feel drop from the brain" is utterly, bluntly incredible.
