Organ Donor

On a recent visit to John Wolfe’s Season of Shadows, I was introduced to this little gem. I’ve enjoyed watching this one so much that I really had to share it. This is the music video for the song Organ Donor from Jeremy Messersmith’s latest album, “The Reluctant Graveyard”. Thanks again John for turning me on to this one. For anyone interested, I’ve included the lyrics below the video. Enjoy!

I was born in a mortuary
Full of worry
Ice water in my veins
Gave my heart in the school library
Never knew her name

Lost my tongue in the sanctuary
“Heaven spare me!”
Hands raised above my head
Sent my brain to the seminary
Never seen again…

Swing low
Grey bones
I don’t know
If I’ll ever be whole again

Left my spine in the wedding chapel
Full of people
Feet turning into lead
Lost a leg at the iron foundry
Where they found me dead

Drained my blood at the mortuary
No more worry
Ice water in my veins
Took my bones to the cemetery
Where they still remain

So swing low
Grey bones
I don’t know
If I’ll ever be whole again
