George Romero will be at our Wedding

I was looking for you when I first heard the sirens
The ambulances filled the streets
The masses screamed and called for help
You were no where next to me
The soldiers came to round up the living
And take them away to somewhere that’s safe
But if I cant find you there’s no place to save me
If you are gone then its too late

Night turns to dawn, and dawn into day
And the land overflows with the dead
Where did I last hold you in my arms?
What was the last thing that you said?
Some hide underground, others hide in a mall
I still drag myself through the streets
I life without love my love isn’t a life to me

I don’t believe that love can rot away
So first aim for the heart, then aim for the head

I wept bitterly and then I threw up
Something silver washed up in my lap
This metal thing, your wedding ring
Brought all of the memories back
I remember the bite, and breaking my teeth
I remember choking it down
Eating your fingers one at a time
I left most of you there on the ground

And it’s there that I find you, just as you were left
Writhing you rise to your feet
You come back to my side with very few insides
They’re still strewn about on the street

I have heard it said that love endures all things
And now I know that its true
Stronger than the grave, death cant put it out
Here I am, the walking dead, still next to you

I don’t believe that love can rot away
So first aim for the heart then aim for the head
If true love last forever, then love doesn’t die
It just becomes the living dead

    George Romero Will Be At Our Wedding: A love story that takes place within George Romero’s “Living Dead” films in which a man is searching for his estranged wife in a post apocalyptic world overrun by reanimated corpses. Just as he is completely overcome with grief and the fear that he has lost his beloved forever, he vomits and finds his wife’s wedding ring and the remnants of her fingers in his upchuck. He reluctantly recalls devouring her, and realizes that he himself is dead and has been for quite some time. Though his wife is dead, and though he has committed an unspeakable sin against her, she was killed by her own husband; their love is so powerful that she conquers death in order to be with him, forgiving his transgressions with no hesitation.

    “If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.”
    “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
    “Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”
    “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love” -1 Corinthians 13

    Wrote the main guitar riff after listening to a lot of Nirvana and Everclear, the main synth riff heard throughout the verses was developed by JG and myself at practice and the Misfit’s type pre-chorus came together naturally.

    General Commentit shows josh's love for horror and it alludes to night of the living dead, dawn of the dead, day of the dead and land of the dead. but the more serious theme is that love transcends everything, even death.

    General Commentthe whole song is supposed to be a metaphor for a love that seems impossible, like the wife has for a husband who eats her, yet is exactly how God loves all of us
