The streets have gone dark
They've been dark for days
We board up the house
Hide upstairs and wait
And wait
Just outside
We hear awful sounds
Cower in bed
And think of ourselves only
The last lights are all fire
We let the heat thrive
Panicked a week
Starved just as long
We're two signs of life
Our doors are marked
Desperate chants of
"Help will come
Help will come
Can't try to leave
Help will come...finally"
The last lights are all fire
Let the heat thrive
Turn the seas sour
Bleed the ground dry
I won't wait
You'll give up with me
No one comes
And we rot in bed
No one comes
And the boards stay up

    My InterpretationThis song is definitely a warning. In an event where civilization breaks down, such as a zombie apocalypse, boarding up the house is the wrong thing to do. You can't count on help coming for you, even if you mark your house. If you do, you'll either starve to death, or end up killing yourself. The only thing to do, is to stock up, be self sufficient, and get out of cities and into the country.
    Do not barricade yourself in someplace.
