I was at the supermarket
Watching people cut in line
I started thinking about human nature
What would you do
if there was no more food?

My mind began to wander
About greed and hunger
And just how many other countries
Are getting ready for another war

But the sun was shining
And everything seemed fine
So count me in
I'll see you on the other side

Chemical bomb
Chemical bomb
Eyes melt, Skin explodes
Everybody's dead
It won't be long
It won't be long
People gonna run around
Losing their heads
A river of blood
Who's gonna live?
The earth is tired of human kind
And I think this world
Is gonna wash up in Hell


La la la la la
La la la la la
La lala la la la la

Then I had another vision
In the crowded grocery store
I saw the Pale Rider on his horse
Decapitating people in the parking lot
And all the shoppers were beasts
What could I do to hide?
Back in this world of humankind
I think we've already lost our minds

But the sun was shining
And everything seemed fine
So count me in
I'll see you on the other side

Chemical bomb
Chemical bomb
Eyes melt, Skin explodes
Everybody's dead
It won't be long
It won't be long
People gonna run around
Losing their heads
A river of blood
Who's gonna live?
The earth is tired of human kind
And I think this world
Is gonna wash up in Hell

La la la la la
La la la la la
La lala la la la la
maybe.... maybe... maybe...

    General CommentThis song is so calm, so serence, so placid. And it's about the grostequeness of human kind.

    Also, it makes me think of Dead Rising. Especially the food market part.

    General CommentThis song cracks me up every time, the cabaret style singing of "eyes melt, skin explodes, everybody's dead" is just sick genius.

    General Comment"Eyes melt, skin explodes, everybody's dead" is actually a line from 'Repo Man'...the Bats tend to reference the movie a lot.
