"Zombie Autopilot" as written by Mike Justian, John Maggard, Paul Mcgrath, Trevor Phipps and Ken Susi....
It was last night on the midnight train back home
I ran into this one yet unfamiliar tone I know I should have known
It was last night I knew I should have known
Chaos

Our busy minds asleep
We drudge across the land
Is this the coming of our monarchy harmless
We meet increased demands
Is this the life we had in our dreams
Our eternal nightmare all of us are blind to others
Hide behind our plans to nothing
Cage us

We weep in self defeat
All humanity is lost
In this eternal nightmare
All days are lost to conditioned zones
All days are lost to what we know free us

A piece of mind
Gone are dreamers who strive to know
All of us are blind

    General CommentAmazing song, one of my favourite songs ever. Hard to find the exact meaning behind the lyrics, so I wont bother. But words cannot describe how I love this song, the guitar solo is so brilliant and the ending always makes me shiver no matter how many times I listen to it.

    General CommentI think this song has to do with a doing the same things over and over again day after day and how it makes us become like Zombies. If you watch the video the guy in the video slowly becomes a Zombie in it. I have a feeling the ultimate meaning is about living life to the fullest and not become a slave or a zombie to our lifestyles being work or daily routines.

    General CommentI love this song, seeing Unearth live with Slipknot and Killswitch Engage was so killer

    I think this song is about people being zombies and unaware of big problems in the world and then suddenly stapping out of their ignorance and realizing all of the issues in the world

    General CommentThe lyrics seem to be inspired by the poem "working on Wall Street" by May Swenson. It's great - check it out =)

    General Commenti think it''s about people who are like zombies and walk like living dead and don't care about others
