The County Medical Examiners – Nh2,(Ch2)4Nh&c5,h14,n2 (Putrescine & Cadfaverine) lyrics

Putrescine and cadaverine
The pungent twins of putridity
Colorless and syrupy
Biogenic amines...
Putrescine and cadaverine
Vapor of ornithine
The stench of death visits me
In the morgue laboratory...
(Perfume of rot... Heady, thick and hot)
Putrescine and cadaverine
Brothers in liquidity
Fuming stench of carcass stink
Noisome gas, fetid glee...
Putrescine and cadaverine
Ambassadors of ripened reek
Breaking down dead protein
Egressing odors miasmically...
(Sickening stink... Makes watering eyes blink)
These dual chemical compounds, released shortly after
Cloud the pleasant morgue ambiance with their foul,
Rotten breath
Fraternally bound to haunt swollen distended bodies
Their chemical reactions clash amidst rank autopsies...
Nh2(Ch2)4NH2... Putrescine!
C5h14n2... Cadaverine!
Nh2(Ch2)4NH2... Putrescine!
C5h14n2... Cadaverine!
Gorges rise and heave with the stench
A symphony of sickness, perfumed with putrescence
While affronted senses nauseously totter and lurch
The carcass breeds odor, and chemically gives birth...
Nh2(Ch2)4NH2... Putrescine!
C5h14n2... Cadaverine!
Nh2(Ch2)4NH2... Putrescine!
C5h14n2... Cadaverine!
The ripened tang of gaseous decomposition let loose in
The morgue
Overtaxed fans strain to aerate the grave-ly polluted
Tumefied decedents belch their chemical cohorts into
The air
The airborne corpse-whiff adheres to fabrics, skin,
And hair
(Acrid reek... Odiferous cadaver leak)
