"Outnumbered" as written by and Michael Hranica Andrew Trick....
We are outnumbered...
The virus has completely devastated over 150 of the world's major regions and is spreading rapidly.
At this point in time we know of only one method of killing the creatures: destroy the brain.
Beyond the guard of any loved ones who may have recently been in any sort of contact could be infected.
And if you find yourself out in a threatening position, please do not hesitate to act.
Again, this is not a test.
This is not a joke.
We as a species are overwhelmed.
We are outnumbered!

Standing at accuracy's demise we have reached the new world wasteland.
Population converted: One by one (one by one), thousands upon thousands.
Like scavengers on waste, like vultures on the sick, zombies outnumber the living.
We are the outnumbered. We are the outnumbered.

Find your post, find your shelter in hopes of outliving the undead.
Build your walls, maintain protection with ambitions of beating the odds.
Find your post, find your shelter in hopes of outliving the undead.
Build your walls, maintain protection with ambitions of beating the odds.

In a sea of stinking rot, in a place where living humans are no longer the hunters,
all the money in the world won't satisfy the enemy.... Hunted. Hunted. Hunted. Hunted.

Standing at accuracy's demise we have reached the new world wasteland. Go...
Mankind is the losing faction; retreat is eternally hopeless.

Find your post, find your shelter in hopes of outliving the undead.
Build your walls, maintain protection with ambitions of beating the odds.
Find your post, find your shelter in hopes of outliving the undead.
Build your walls, maintain protection!

With ambitions of beating the odds.

We are the outnumbered.

    General Commentits talking about how the worlds becoming a wasteland, which we have to admit it is with all the death and crime. also the oil spill! :p but in all seriousness its speaking about how many people have turned to hate and ultimately, destruction. "with ambitions of beating the odds" its talking about keeping your own, beating what satan is trying to throw at you. " find your post, find your shelter, build your walls maintain protection" its talking about finding God and keeping close, find shelter in God, build your walls against the worlds destruction, and keep yourself protected from it.

    and the dude who said its just about zombies, how ignorant..

    Standing at accuracy's demise
    We have reached the new world wasteland
    Population converted: one by one, thousands upon thousands
    Like scavengers on waste, like vultures on sick,
    Zombies outnumber the living
    We are the outnumbered
    We are the outnumbered!

    [Chorus]
    Find your post, find your shelter
    In hopes of outliving the undead
    Build your walls, maintain protection
    With ambitions of beating the odds
    (x2)

    In a sea of stinking rot,
    In a place where living human are no longer the hunter,
    All the money in the world won't satisfy the enemy
    Hunted! Hunted! Hunted! Hunted!
    Standing at accuracy's demise
    We have reached the new world wasteland
    Mankind is the losing faction
    Retreat is eternally hopeless

    [Chorus]
    Find your post, find your shelter
    In hopes of outliving the undead
    Build your walls, maintain protection
    With ambitions of beating the odds

    General CommentI totally think, with hollywoods demonic views on zombies and the picture we have of zombies, that the infection is christianity and is spreading rapidly. We as christians arent on the defenseive, we are on the offensive rapidly advancing the kingdom of God all over the world. what if zombies are the living and the survivors are the dead ones? think about it... only holding up there own? living to survive? thats not christianity. We are a body of believers not our own being, we are a unit. And we are living to outlive this world and all the evils it throws at us, but we are also fighting it with our beliefs all over the world.Even if we are outnumbered by this worlds forces, we have a benifactor and His name is above all names and his power is above all powers, and His name is Jesus Christ.

    General CommentI'm excited for this. Even if I didn't already love TDWP, I would buy this EP just because it's about zombies :)

    My InterpretationThey said that they were just making this album for fun, writing about zombies obviously. But the actual lyrics do mean something. During the chorus I think it means you need to find yourself and stick with it. There are so many bad things going on in the world that people forget who they are and go with the flow. And yeah maybe it could have something to do with like finding Jesus Christ and believe in him even if other people don't. And yes, whoever said it's only about zombies mustn't think much.

    General CommentKudos to TDWP for branding this song with a name that is both relevant to the lyrics and not ridiculously stupid!
