"One Day Son" as written by Omar Abidi, Daniel Haigh, Charles Robert Simpson and Alexander Westaway....
The night, the day, the dawn of dead, rising from the ground
It's time to see the reckoning
You never had it all this cash
Or country of your own
The land that feeds the rest alone.

When there's no room in hell the dead will walk the earth.

Just come alone and gather round
Till your gonna shake up your aim
Cause one day son this will all be yours
I'm sorry for this mess.

The night, the day, the dawn of dead, view them what you will
A drop of blood could change it all
And soon the day will come my friend
The time to hand it on
So here's to solving our sickness.

When there's no room in hell the dead will walk the earth.

Just come alone and gather round
Till your gonna shake up your aim
Cause one day son this will all be yours
I'm sorry for this mess.

Just come and walk with the dead.
Dead.

Just come alone and gather round
Till your gonna shake up your aim
Cause one day son this will all be yours
I'm sorry for this mess.

    General Commenti think the line in the chorus is 'Take up your aim' not 'shake'

    General CommentI hate people who pick wrong lyrics from other sites and post them here. Whoever posted these lyrics (leeham); next time let somebody who's not as much of a lazy fuck as you are add the lyrics to new songs.

    Corrections in the first verse:

    You've never had it all this good
    A country of your own
    (can't make out the word) fear's irrational

    General Commentthe chorus is
    "Just go and load another round
    Till your gonna take up your aim"

    makes more sense since the song is full of "The night, the day, the dawn of dead" zombie references.

    I really can't figure out the last line of the first verse though.

    The night, the day, the dawn of dead, rising from the ground
    It's time to see the reckoning
    You never had it all this good
    A country of your own..

    A land that fears the less you know, (maybe?) its definitely not irrational. or a lesson owed, something along those lines, i reckon.

    General CommentSuperficially, the song's about the state the world is in and the way its been left for its children. "I'm sorry for this mess" signifies that the world has been left in ruins and this generation isn't prepared to do anything. The chorus (it's take up your aim btw) is about how the younger generation are going to have to continue the war's started by their parents.

    General Commenti think it's about a dictator, who pushes his people too far, and they rebel, so his son must earn the right to be leader by stopping the rebellion

    General CommentYou are all pretty much stupid.
    The lyrics on the top are all right..It's a land that feeds on us alone, not a land that fears the less you know; that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
    This song is pretty much Charlie's way of saying that this country is filled with 'zombies' who have no idea how to run themselves intelligently. "this will all be yours, I'm sorry for this mess" is basically saying that the leaders of the government are handing down a system and policy that is corrupt and they don't even realize it, and there's nothing you can do to change it.

    General Commentfightstar99... Sh.

    SillyHatMan pretty much got it although i can kinda detect a bit of the 'NGE' in there. When Shinji's dad hands the responsibility down to him - would explain the whole 'take up your aim' thing aswell.

    General CommentYeah I think this song is about Zombies...

    "The night, the day, the dawn of dead
    rising from the ground"

    That kinda gives it away..
