Tonight's twilight will be the last seen by our eyes,
So if it seems so beautiful, kiss the beauty goodbye,
Oh my little cornea, please say that you are no more,
And ears please swear you did not hear this creaking in the cabin floor,
I'll forgive my eyes for lovely lies, so certainly within my will,
Please declare this piercing stare, So false, at a clock that's standing still.

Such pretty skin, give it to us,
The sun won't wise my spirit dies, All hope has withdrawn,
So here I lay because either way, I know we'll all be dead by dawn,
Dead by dawn.

Arming shotgun shells this rotting smell lingers on words that were said,
Her body in pieces, my hand cut away, the ever-enchanting book of the dead,
The sun won't rise, my spirit dies, All hope has withdrawn,
So here I lay because either way I know we'll all be dead by dawn.
A chainsaw can remove a limb or act as a replacement,
Smell the gas as hours pass, contrary to my statement,
The corpses wish to cover me with kisses,
So just maybe I'll cover this cabin with their blood,
Hail to the king baby.

    General CommentThis song is pretty straight forward, it's about the Evil Dead movies. :)

    General CommentI saw showbread last night and one of the singers said it was about a guy who goes to a cabin in a woods and finds tapes. Then he quit talkin about it 'cause the guitarist started playing, but it makes sense. By the way, if you get a chance GO SEE SHOWBREAD LIVE! They are amazing, by far one of the best live bands ive seen. They have amazing energy and let the crowd sing/scream with them if you look like you want to. Trust me, it is an absolutely amazing experience!

    General CommentI definitely agree with the last comment. "Her body in pieces, my hand cut away, the ever-enchanting book of the dead,"refers to Ash (Bruce Campbell) having to dismember his girlfriend. Also "A chainsaw can remove a limb or act as a replacement,"refers to Ash cutting his arm off after it was possesed and replacing it with a Chainsaw. Close th the end of the movie Army of Darkness (the third movie) Ash says, "Hail to the King, Baby."

    General Commentas if we weren't already assured that showbread was not only the best band in the Christian music scene, but in all of music as a whole, they had to come out with this song and reassure us once again. only the rediculous skill and creativity of these crazy kids could produce a song about zombies. ah yes, they've done it. and it couldn't be better.

    Sincerely Yours,
    Age of Reptiles

    and may Raw Rock kill you forever and ever, amen.

    General Commentits about the movie evil dead i don't know if anyone has seen it but (A chainsaw can remove a limb or act as a replacement) and (Her body in pieces, my hand cut away, the ever-enchanting book of the dead) all happens in the movie.
    the main character gets his hand cut off and replaces it with a chainsaw.
