Sarcophagus Full Of Sarcoma

If I open this door my heart will walk out,
But if I keep it closed it will eventually break it down.
I have no reason to keep paying my lungs to breathe,
I'll do it myself, I don't need this bladder, I don't need this brain.
All I need is love and perhaps some beans.
And a compass to find my way back to my pyramid.
Oh no wait, I'll use the sun.

    Good stuff... seems quite blasé. And no I'm not the guy at the helm of premiership side West Ham.
