Take my hand I'm waiting
The smell of piss is suffocating
(They) pray to God
no he won't save them

Though the alleys hide us
The diseased they thought they killed
Are coming back to make us pay well

I'm not ready you're still mine, love
They're closing in
We'll never make it

I thought we'd die in our sleep
not face down in the streets
Their rotten arms stretch for blood
I pray they'll never catch us
Cause they don't die, they don't sleep

Oh no help is on the way
Witness city streets ablaze
Don't trust a soul but me now lovely
Don't cry, your mom and dad are fine
They're off to heaven safe and sound well

Hell on Earth,
It still surrounds us
Don't let go
I know we'll make it

I thought we'd die in our sleep, not face down in the streets
Their rotten arms stretch for blood
I pray they'll never catch us
Cause they don't die, they don't sleep

What have we done?
We left them for dead, look what they've become
Flesh hungry, vicious
Please don't slow down
if we don't make it out
God I swear I loved you

I thought we'd die in our sleep, not face down in the streets
Their rotten arms stretch for blood, I pray they'll never catch us
Cause they don't die, they don't sleep
