Every dead body that is not exterminated becomes one of them.
It gets up and kills! The people it kills and kill!

Why is it?

Because they still believe there's respect.

Hello, Captain.

I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-
I-I was born
A zombie
From Mercury.
I just sleep.

I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-
I-I was born
A zombie
From Mercury.
I just sleep.

Ah-I-ah!

You got an alternative?

Yeah, yeah, I got an alternative.
Let's get in that old whirlybird
There, find us an island someplace, get in the, and spend what
Time we got left soakin' up some sunshine.
How's that?

    General Commentthese lyrics are so fucking wrong its ridiculous

    first, correction on the samples (see the movies before putting the quotes from them people):

    [From Dawn of the Dead]
    "Every dead body that is not exterminated becomes one of them, it gets up and KILLS, the people it KILL get up and KILL"

    "Why do they keep them here?
    Because they still believe theres respect in dying"

    "Aye, aye captain"

    [From Day of the Dead]
    "You got an alternative?
    Yeah, yeah, I got an alternative. Let's get in that old whirlybird there, find us an island someplace, get real juiced up and spend what time we got left soakin' up some sunshine. How's that?"

    and the main lyrics:
    "I was born a zombie
    I'm a creep
    From the sea"
