How dark was the night?
When they were given new life?
On the eve of our impending doom
The buried and forgotten
Moldy and rotten
Began to stir in their tombs
Here in our darkest of hours
Prepare for the coming dread
Mindless walking things
What horror do they bring?
Now that eternal peace is denied?
The dearly departed
Are back where they started
And everything's far from alright!

They have woken to devour
This world will run red
The earth has now grown sour
And its spitting out the dead!
Be warned! be still!
Now you can hear them stirring!
Clawing at the ceilings of their graves
They're here! They're dead!
They're evil and their hungry!
Flesh and sinew and bone have all gone astray!
No pulse! No brains!
Now you can hear them digging!
Corpses transformed into feral beasts!
No soul! No hope!
No conscience in their blood lust!
They have only come here for one thing and that's to feast!

The hordes of decay are crawling this way
And they're pouring out into the streets
Lifeless hollow shells are escaping their cells
And they're dying for something to eat!
Here in our darkest of hours
Prepare for the coming dread
An army of death with their fetid breath
And their skin dangling from their bones
There is no escape from this most ghastly of fate
For this is how we must atone!

They have woken to devour
This world will run red
The earth has now grown sour
And its spitting out the dead!
Be warned! be still!
Now you can hear them stirring!
Clawing at the ceilings of their graves
They're here! They're dead!
They're evil and their hungry!
Flesh and sinew and bone have all gone astray!
No pulse! No brains!
Now you can hear them digging!
Corpses transformed into feral beasts!
No soul! No hope!
No conscience in their blood lust!
They have only come here for one thing and that's to feast!

The dead are awake
There's no escape
Tombs asunder
Released from slumber
Peaceful silence
Turns to violence
Will this affliction be our downfall?
Reanimation!
Desecration!
Death is no longer the Be-All End-All
Insurrection!
Resurrection!
Out of the mouth of Hades they have crawled!

Be warned! be still!
Now you can hear them stirring!
Clawing at the ceilings of their graves
They're here! They're dead!
They're evil and their hungry!
Flesh and sinew and bone have all gone astray!
No pulse! No brains!
Now you can hear them digging!
Corpses transformed into feral beasts!
No soul! No hope!
No conscience in their blood lust!
They have only come here for one thing and that's to feast!
