He was murdered in the dark at night
Illuminated by the crosses' light
Swayin' feet, noose fastened tight
Murdered by those men in white

Whoah oh
Thrown in the swamp, that corpse won't die
Whoah oh
The voodoo goddess gon' bring him life
Whoah oh
She calls her zombie to feast tonight

She brought him back to take their souls
Revenge is swift and oh so cold
White turns to red and the blood it flows
She puts their children's heads upon her walls

Whoah oh
Thrown in the swamp, that corpse won't die
Whoah oh
The voodoo goddess gon' bring him life
Whoah oh
They're gonna get revenge tonight

    General CommentThis song is about a man lynched by the KKK who is brought back to life to take revenge on them. I don't really think there's much of a deeper meaning behind the song.
