Twelve years I lay here in wait
In a coffin six feet under
Prematurely laid to rest
Murdered by my own creation

My mission left incomplete
My vision left unfulfilled
Departed from the world too soon
Time to finish what I started

Writhing here in agony
Struggling to be released
This box no longer contains
The thing that I have become

Layers of dirt I claw through
Ascending toward the surface
Stretch my hand above my head
Breaking ground I grasp the air

My rotting corpse has been set free
To roam the Earth eternally
Charged by the energy you have given

My rotting corpse has been set free
To roam the Earth eternally
There's no escape you see dead has risen

Panic fills the streets around me
People running everywhere
Chaos and disorder rampant
And it's only just begun

Gather up your torch and pitchfork
Bar your windows; lock your doors
This night shall last forever
There is much left to be done

My rotting corpse has been set free
To roam the Earth eternally
Charged by the energy you have given

My rotting corpse has been set free
To roam the Earth eternally
There's no escape you see dead has risen
