In remainders of the dead,
In confusion of unnumbered sound,
Solace in the head,
The body,

    Nirvana, Nirvana, Nirvana
    Flushed into the
    Jaws of piraña
    Munched and crunched
    Truncated scream
    Ephemeral hue
    Dispersed in stream
    Around above below
    Within beyond without
    In piraña bowel
    Until all shat out
    Detritus in stream (Report) Reply
