"Live Undead" as written by Tomas Enrique Araya, Kerry King and Jeffery John Hanneman....
Cascaded darkness
Walls close in on me.
Nailed shut but my eyes still see.
Severe anguish as my body evolves.
The pain of life after death it resolves.

Emptiness in twilight's rebirth,
The faint sounds of shoveled earth.
Madness growing as your mind dissolves.
Merely secret in my dreams.

Night grows cold, twilight's near,
On the edge of madness the wounds are sheared.
Forms of hanging, flesh shredded carcass
No spared breath.

Imprisoned in a shell, ready to explode.
Dead soul,
Stone cold,
Out into the night.

Voices inside my head
Hold me under.
Voices oppress.
Like roaring thunder.

An echo bouncing inside my brain.
How much can I take of the pain,
The pain!

A war raging deep inside my head,
A split decision that will end with me dead.

You see the agony in my eyes,
Protruding aimless,
I think it's time to die.

A cannibal's desire feeds the fire
That burns in your head.

Intense pain eats away at your brain,
Thorazine pumping through your veins.

Death walks inside you,
Smell death around you,
Hell's evil spell takes a soul,
Hear the sound of the bell
Counting off death tolls.

Laughing as you eternally rot,
Searching for human flesh
And life's blood.

Live Undead.

    General CommentActually, I think it has something to do with being burried alive (hence the name)...

    Cascaded Darkness, walls close in on me
    - Youre put inside a casket

    Nailed Shut But My Eyes Still See
    - casket is closed (specially in old times when it was nailed closed... I think) but you can still see since youre alive

    The Pain Of Life After Death It Resolves
    - You are still alive after being considered dead/put in coffin, and you will eventually die...

    General Commenti think i agree with alasticinverted but it could be about lots of things there is no set meanings for any of thoes words becuase they could be representing something else

    A Cannibal's Desire Leads The Fire
    That Burns In Your Head <<<<<
    everything before the second solo i think is about being buried and then turned into a zombie in some way
    everything after that i think is about actually being the zombie

    scary stuff =]

    General CommentThis is about someone who has been buried alive.

    "A Cannibal's Desire Leads The Fire
    That Burns In Your Head"

    He is thinking about surviving off his own flesh, the fire burning in his head is his struggle with "sanity" because he doesn't want to feast on himself.
