"Pet Sematary" as written by and Daniel/colvin Rey....
Under the arc of a weather stain boards,
Ancient goblins, and warlords,
Come out of the ground, not making a sound,
The smell of death is all around,
And the night when the cold wind blows, No one cares, nobody knows.

I don't want to be buried in a Pet Sematary,
I don't want to live my life again.
I don't want to be buried in a Pet Sematary,
I don't want to live my life again.

Follow Victor to the sacred place,
This ain't a dream, I can't escape,
Molars and fangs, the clicking of bones,
Spirits moaning among the tombstones,
And the night, when the moon is bright,
Someone cries, something ain't right.

The moon is full, the air is still,
All of a sudden I feel a chill,
Victor is grinning, flesh rotting away,
Skeletons dance, I curse this day,
And the night when the wolves cry out,
Listen close and you can hear me shout.

I don't want to be buried in a Pet Sematary,
I don't want to live my life again.
I don't want to be buried in a Pet Sematary,
I don't want to live my life again, oh no, oh no
I don't want to live my life again, oh no, oh oh,
I don't want to live my life again, oh no no no
I don't want to live my life again, oh oh

    General CommentI'm surprised no one mentioned it yet but Stephen King was friends with Joey Ramone (I believe it was Joey if I remember correctly). King actually wrote a whole story about him and Joey going to a French Restaurant in the liner notes of the Ramones tribute CD.

    General CommentA karaoke favorite of mine. Love this song.

    Pretty straight forward stuff here - wasn't looking for insight, just felt like checkin' out the comments.

    I don't know this for a fact - but i'm imagining if King commissioned them to write the song, he probably did it before they filming began. Meaning they probably wrote and recorded the song before the movie was finished and hence used the book to based the lyrics around. It's cooler that way anyway - but that makes some kinda sense i think. No?
