"Hate The Living, Love The Dead" as written by Jerry Caiafa, Paul Caiafa, David Calabrese and Michael C. Emanuel....
Hate the living, love the dead
Smashing embryos, cut off heads
Find the brain for my bride-to-be
We'll bear our children, Adam and Eve

Put me together with the bodies of the dead
And I will wait for life and breathe again
Hate the living, love the dead

Scalpels, scissors, stitches, skin
Wake this eternal sleep she's in
And we'll breed for you, on your command
Hate the living, love the dead

Nerves steady, hands are sure
Bride reborn to view with horror
Blackened eyes, blood-stained hands
Hate the living, love the dead

Put me together with the bodies of the dead
And I will wait for life and breathe again
Hate the living, love the dead

Scalpels, scissors, stitches, skin
Wake this eternal sleep she's in
And we'll breed for you, on your command
Hate the living, love the dead

Put me together with the bodies of the dead
And I will wait for life and breathe again
Hate the living, love the dead

Scalpels, scissors, stitches, skin
Wake this eternal sleep she's in
And we'll breed for you, on your command
Hate the living, love the dead

Oh

    General CommentJust thought I would throw this in there...

    I don't know if anyone has confirmation that this is about Bride of Frankenstein, but I also thought there was a chance this song was about Re-animator/Bride of the Re-Animator. Just sounds like it with all the gore imagery... however, the "We will breed for you on your command" part doesn't really fit in with that interpretation to well.

    I am not trying to challenge popular thought here, just thought I'd point out the possibility. If it is in fact about Bride of Frankenstein, it is still pretty interesting to think of the Re-Animator flicks in relation to these lyrics as well.
