"It's not that I mind falling into the rabbit hole, I just don't want to loose sight of the door." from Here There Be Dragons.

The city in the sea
Is where the dead reside
From there you cannot flee
There is nowhere to hide

Grim is the lord of the realm
Sitting proudly on his throne
And you endlessly worship him
From your graves alone

Sunlight is a myth
The sea does not dare come near
Your loved ones remain forever
But they do not need fear

Tormented by their lives
They are now forever alone
But in this place of darkness and fire
They will find what they truly desire
Healing from the world that was once their home

For even though you’re fettered
I assure you this world is better
Here you do not have to work or think
You lay as broken as a leaky sink
Your mind slowly leaks away
Until one day….

You are a husk of once you once were
Your memories are now only a blur
Your grief and fear falls away
Happiness and kindness begins to fray

Your bones begin to disintegrate
In your grave, which is everyone’s fate
And slowly your form begins to rise
Slowly your dopple-ganger begins to fly

To Grim Death you finally fly
And when you reach him you truly die…
