This is how I view reincarnation.

lyrics

When I die don’t cremate me
Don’t keep my ashes in an urn
Don’t fill me with formaldehyde
Just throw my body to the worms

Oh throw my body to the worms
Just let my flesh decompose
To the soil I shall return
So throw my body to the worms

When I’m gone do not preserve me
Like some old Egyptian mummy
I’ll be through with this body, I won’t need it anymore
And I’d like to see it turn to compost

Oh throw my body to the worms
Just let my flesh decompose
To the soil I shall return
So throw my body to the worms

Oh why should my spirit get to be the only one
Who reincarnates into another form?
My body’s made up of useful molecules
And nutrients for all those little worms

So if someday you’re standing out in my backyard
Wishing that I still was around
Just look around you at the flowers & the trees
Imagine how their cells came from me

Oh throw my body to the worms
Just let my flesh decompose
To the soil I shall return
So throw my body to the worms

Throw my body to the worms
Throw my body to the worms
