about

This song is about eating people after you rise up from the grave, not zombies.

lyrics

My face is getting wet
From the rain dropping through my casket
And those whispers, oh how they urge
My hands to claw at the dirt
And those sighs on the wind
Will they fall with the scent of blood?
My eyes are too big for my stomach
And I ain't looking at mud

I'm coming back from the dead
You know what I'm gonna do
Climbing up from my grave
Baby, I'm rising up for you

There's a weight in my chest and it's not gonna let up
Until I get that flesh in between my teeth and the blood on my tongue
When the crows start singing

"Oh, there goes a dead man
Running from a second chance.
Oh, just keep on dancing
Along the cobblestone and away from that hole."

Crying out to the moon overhead
Rotten teeth gleaming in the light
Something stirs in the cemetery
The living are in for a fight for their lives

'Cause I've been damned to the pit for as long as I can remember
I've been staggering along with the beat of the hearts that I've been
Starving for
You'll hear the moans rising up from the bodies in the feast
They've been six feet under
For far too long and now that death is knocking on your door
Will you sing it?

"Oh, there goes a dead man
Running from a second chance.
Oh, just keep on dancing
Along the cobblestone and away from that hole."

I'm coming back from the dead
