Alone is to feel death crawling beneath your skin
We must remember the dead

I look down to the ground before me
Worried no longer, we were free for the first time
Now more lonely than we ever been

Around the fire we wonder; if they are alone as we are
The lonely dead lonely

Alone is to feel death crawling beneath your skin
We must remember the dead

Around the fire we wonder; if they are alone as we are
The lonely dead lonely

Dead we are the lonely dead, dead we are the lonely dead
When we speak we speak of the new age
And we realize the dead
Our lives live in the ruin of change

Our first choice was to bury them
Our first choice was to bury them

Dead we are the lonely dead, dead we are the lonely dead
When we speak we speak of the new age
And we realize the dead
Our lives live in the ruin of change

Dead we are the lonely dead, dead we are the lonely dead

    General CommentAmazing song, though I'm not completely clear on the meaning... The whole album is a story, so maybe the Lonely Dead are the ones who were rejected by society. They're dead to society, and they have only each other and their own revolutionary thoughts to guide them and keep them company.
    I saw God Forbid live, and I got to scream into the mic during this song. Byron switched off with me during the "remember the dead" verse!
