I died last night
Tripped over my own shoelaces
I broke my spine
Fell on the sidewalk
And I landed on my face
And I thought
What a way to go
After all I’ve seen
Can’t just press undo
I’ve become a zombie me

Now I slide down the street
With no shoes on my feet
Looking for brains to eat
I’m a zombie me

Tried to say hi
But all of my earthly charm had gone
She floated by
So distracted with the sound
Of her own cell phone
I said go ahead and walk away
I have all I need
Now I speak with all the
Eloquence of livestock
And I’ve become a zombie me

Now I slide down the street
With no shoes on my feet
Looking for brains to eat
I’m a zombie me

We got some zombies comin' out the ground
We goin' pound for pound with a cleric around
Become a zombie, be cool like Fonzie
I know you wanna get on me when I say “Come on, Archie”
Let’s go see Vigo ask some people that he know
I got Ghostbusters 2 in the queue on the TiVo
I got the fever for the flavor of a human brain
And all the zombies in the house say Oh
And all the zombies in the house say Eh Eh Oh

What a way to go
After all I’ve seen
Can’t just press undo
I’ve become a zombie me

Now I slide down the street
With no shoes on my feet
Looking for brains to eat
I’m a zombie me

Now we’re recruiting new meat
As we march to the beat
Now the army’s complete
I’m a zombie me

    Song MeaningThis song is perfect for the album its on... anyone who is fond of well written metaphors in song writing needs to hear this whole album in order.

    Verse one, the story of becoming a "zombie", the singer trips over his shoelaces and "dies". This is similar to what we see when we log on to facebook and see our friends, acting like their life is over because someone dumped them, or their iphone wouldn't text in the bathroom. It represents everything encapsulated in "fml"... Tripping on your shoelaces is embarrassing, but if you just tie your shoes and get over it, there's no reason you should have to remember it even happening.. and definitely no reason you have to let the incident come between anyone you care about. "Can't just press undo" means that the character in still trying to move forward, while still feeling the shock he's recently been through.

    Verse two proves the metaphor. If the singer were a "real" zombie, he would not "have all he needs" as she floats by, distracted by her cell phone. When we're holding on to the damage of our past, we become unattractive to any potential future lovers. We "speak with all the eloquence of livestock" as we try to impress a person we don't internally feel worthy to be with.

    To FURTHER prove the metaphor, the rap verse describes the "all I need" mentioned in the previous verse... Having been rejected, our zombie enjoys the life of the undead, re-watching the same old stories(Happy Days, All in the Family, Ghostbusters 2) on TV and seeking out the company of others with no compulsion to create their own art of any sort.

    The last version of the chorus would hook hardest those people who just don't get any of this. "Recruiting new meet as we march to the beat, now our army's complete." This could translate metaphorically to meeting new friends based on nothing more than media interest, who are equally cut off from their inner light of creativity... which is surprisingly common in a country that was "land of the free" before Reagan's zombie army stamped out the smolder of those ashes...

    This is a very lighthearted and funny song, but also very carefully considered and well executed.
