"I Love the Dead" as written by Bob Ezrin and Alice Cooper....
I love the dead before they rise
No farewells, no goodbyes
I never even knew your now rotting face
While friends and lovers mourn your silly grave
I have other uses for you, darling

I love the dead
I love the dead
I love the dead so

I love the dead
I love the dead
I love the dead

I love the dead before they're cold
Their blueing flesh for me to hold
Cadaver eyes upon me see nothing
