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 CommentOh wow, I just saw Dawn of the Dead (the original George A Romero one) and boy is it creepy. This song fits PERFECTLY with it.

    According to some research I did, albatrosses are said to be the "bad luck birds", apparently.

    Crows are bad luck on land and I guess albatross are bad luck by sea.

    Maybe its a metaphor for like a "sea of zombies?"

    Just as a side note, Gorillaz seems to really like this movie b/c they use a musical number from it as the Intro for their new album "Demon Days" (its the part where the two guys are outside the mall, getting ready to drive two trucks and block off the entrance, and the zombies are all crowding around the trucks).
