"Dead By Dawn" as written by Steven Kenneth Asheim, Glen Michael Benton, Brian Hoffman and Eric Hoffman....
Book of the dead, pages bound in human flesh
Feasting the beast, from the blood the words were said
I am unseen, dreamt the sacred passage aloud
Trapped in a dream of the necronomicon

Seven lords of an evil and fatal force
Levitate through the secret and ancient doors
Unbegun, premenating bizarre
Swept away to the castle of Cantar

Seeking the tomb, tried to possess
Immortal sleep, visions of death
Drank of the blood, water of life
Splendorous son, show me the sign
You are dead
Blanketing fear, unknown to man
Demons appear, death they command

(Dead by dawn, dead by dawn, dead by dawn
Dead by dawn)

(Dead by dawn, dead by dawn, dead by dawn
Dead by dawn)

(Dead by dawn, dead by dawn, dead by dawn
Dead by dawn)

Blasphermate me

We are what wars, and shall rule again
Dead by dawn, chanting death thee ancient hymm
This is not real, I am not the chosen one
Trapped in a spell of necronomicon

Torted pain, in the palace of dead
Recitate, through the passages I dreamt
Dead, dead by dawn
Dead, dead by dawn

    General CommentUgh. This song is an obvious reference to Evil Dead. I mean come on "Dead by dawn" recited over and over in the movie. "We are what was, and shall rule again" an obvious rip of "We are the things that were and shall be again" And "This is not real, I am not the chosen one" Ash IS the chosen one, even though he thinks he's not. Wow.

    General CommentThis song is about being cursed when you stupid little "goth" wanna-be's play with magic, and end up dead because you fucked with the wrong demon or plucked some really evil witches hair for your spell. The song basically says, "Dont fuck with something you dont know much, or have much respect for." I know, I know - 'thats all bullshit', you say. Well, keep thinking that so there can be more great songs like this one.

    General CommentThis song is about the crucifiction of Christ. "Immortal sleep, visions of death
    Drank of the blood, water of life
    Splendorous son, show me the sign
    You are dead
    Blanketing fear, unknown to man
    Demons appear, death they command
    Dead by dawn, dead by dawn, dead by dawn"
    Which is ironic that they would say that, because even Satan himself believes in God, because he was an angel himself. He didn't want Christ to die, because he knew that if he died, it would take our sins, and people would be able to go to heaven. He wants to win, but in the end he won't.

    General CommentDouchePatrol, spare us all from your right wing, pro-christ rhetoric. I see you fundamentalists using this FREE site to promote your irrelevant religion. Maybe your GOD can bless you with something more than this feeling of self-righteousness evident in your post.

    General Comment#3: Slap your own forehead for misspelling 'watch', lol.

    Seriously though, I don't know how anyone can read anything else into this song. It is about Dawn of the Dead, end of.
