"Wake The Dead" as written by and Robert C./howard Mccracken....
This is not natural
A bunch of holes where the dead used to be underground
Forget supernatural
'Cause all those resting in peace are out walking the streets
Yeah, with no heartbeat

Across the sky they can hear you on the other side
A scream that's loud enough to wake the dead
And all alone you bought tickets for the nightmare as you wake the dead

Oh, this is not possible
An empty hole in your chest where your heart used to beat
Does this mean what I think it means?
How could both you and me be about as dead as we could be?
Yeah, with no heartbeat

Across the sky they can hear you on the other side
A scream that's loud enough to wake the dead
And all alone you bought tickets for the nightmare as you wake the dead

Take a walk with me
Walk with the dead
'Cause you knew that we'd have to die sometime
Well, darling, tonight could be...

Let your voice shred miles (of diamond skies)
Just to walk as they wake in the darkness (yeah)
Well, darling, tonight could be a beautiful night to die
(A beautiful night to die, yeah)

Wake the dead
Fuck it, you're dead
Wake the dead
Fuck it, you're dead
Wake the dead
Wake the dead

Across the sky they can hear you
A scream that's loud enough to wake the dead
And all alone you bought tickets for the nightmare as you wake the dead
Wake the dead

Across the sky they can hear you on the other side
A scream that's loud enough to wake the dead
And all alone you bought tickets for the nightmare as you wake the dead
Wake the dead
Wake the dead
Wake the dead
Wake the dead
Wake the dead

    General Commentsongmeanings really need to add an option to EDIt and CORRECT lyrics, particularly as a number of them are put up before the final song versions are realsed, or are put up by illiterate idiots.
    on other news, this song rocks. i heart zombiez. not so big on the slow bridge because thursday did the exact same thing in At This Velocity. otherwise rocks.

    General CommentIn my opinion, its a song about society, likening people to the dead, generalising people to all have the same routine, and mindlessly go about their everyday lives without any real thought or care.

    good job on fucking up every single song that you posted lyrics to. you already have the lyrics, why put them in the wrong order? I guess you're just that cool.

    General CommentWhat wrong order?

    Anyway this song is fucking awesome... So detailed and expressive... props to the Used.

    Btw, this song takes a listen or two to get into. Then you'll love it.

    General CommentI think this one is obviously about raising the dead, and in the end, leaving with them
