The Walking Dead

lyrics

Feast your eyes on radiant screens
a handmade reality is here for you to view

Feed your hunger with the poison
feed poison with lament for the young

If this skin just doesn’t fit right - it’s designed for desire
these days you’re so desirable - so why don’t we have some fun?
look at where we came from, take a look at what we’ve done
why don’t we have some fun?

We are The Walking Dead

As I age time reverses, ‘till it’s back to blights and curses on The View
and if life is but a book tour, I’ll just smile and nod, be cordial - but what’s the point?

We are stain on the sleeve of evolution
we’re piss in the pants of progress
we are the wretched ones
look at where came from, take another look at what we’ve done
and see what we’ve become… what have we become?

We are The Walking Dead

Look at where we came from, look at what we’ve done
The Beast is our reflection, thought we had it perfect
took it to the island, sang This Land is My Land
we’re hungry like children, we’re wild as villains

We are The Walking Dead
