Xenopsylla Cheopis
MDCLXV
We used the helicase
to bind the CXV

Non-responsive
And their ferritin is high
In vivo
But still seem to be alive

Controls are feeling fine
Despite the awful sounds
Brought the incidence of tallowy offal down

We all fall down
We fall down
We all fall down
We fall down

The martyr's bretheren were not to be set free
In vitro planet Earth
In vivo you and me

He had them watch me
And lock everything around
He told me
You seem awful down

We all fall down
We fall down
We all fall down
We fall down

It will end in flashes
And we'll choke on ashes
And we'll all fall down

Long live the phantom
I hear him sing and scream out his anthem
I feel the shadows
Crying
Running
Coming, for me too dark to see

We all fall down
We fall down
We all fall down
We fall down

It will end in flashes
And we'll choke on ashes
And we'll all fall down

It will end in ashes of their lies
We can still see flashes in our eyes
But until it crashes
And the atom smashes
All our minds will just fade away

It will end in flashes
And we'll choke on ashes
And we'll fall

    My Interpretationi think it means fighting.
    End in flashes: Flashes=Gunshots
    Choke on ashes: Ashes=Being burnt/cooked
    All Fall Down: Fall Down=Dying

    General CommentThe song's about the creation of the zombies in Nazi Zombies.
    It's from the perspective of the scientists who started the program and their deaths as they are overwhelmed by the zombies.

    Xenopsylla Cheopis
    MDCLXV
    (London plague of 1665)

    We used the helicase
    to bind the CXV
    (Binding CXV/Roman numerals for Element 115 to resurrect dead cells)

    Non-responsive
    And their ferritin is high
    In vivo
    But still seem to be alive
    (Resurrection of dead cells, creating zombies, they're docile)

    Controls are feeling fine
    Despite the awful sounds
    Brought the incidence of tallowy offal down
    (Controlling of a drone or a mechanically controlled zombie, awful sounds being the moaning and screaming)

    The martyr's bretheren were not to be set free
    In vitro planet Earth
    In vivo you and me

    He had them watch me
    And lock everything around
    He told me
    You seem awful down

    Long live the phantom
    I hear him sing and scream out his anthem
    I feel the shadows
    Crying
    Running
    Coming, for me too dark to see
    (This is the internal conflict between some of the scientists and their betrayal of each other, killing their families or each other and eventually releasing the zombies)
    We all fall down
    We fall down
    We all fall down
    We fall down

    It will end in flashes
    And we'll choke on ashes
    And we'll all fall down

    It will end in ashes of their lies
    We can still see flashes in our eyes
    But until it crashes
    And the atom smashes
    All our minds will just fade away

    It will end in flashes
    And we'll choke on ashes
    And we'll fall
    (Absolute apocalyptic chaos. Flashes representing explosions and gunshots, ashes and atom smashing representing fire and nuclear explosions. The flashes can still be seen by the survivors and zombies alike. But the world is over and eventually everyone, living and undead will fall down and die.)
