Rock 'n' Rott lyrics

Doomsday, the end of days, the first day of total chaos on earth
Waking up in my dark cold coffin, this is the day of my second birth
Half rotten soulless being, starting to make it's way up from the grave
Driven only by faint memories, hunger for living and terrible pain

Up from the grave, coffin splinters piercing dead skin
From the moldy cave, pushing upward with empty grin

Just 30 years, the prime of my life was cut short by a coward´s hand
As soon as I get up from this grave, oh the payback will be so grand
4 weeks under the ground, oh how my wife and kids must have missed me
Can't wait to see their faces again, oh the homecoming will be so sweet

Up from the grave, coffin splinters piercing dead skin
From the moldy cave, pushing upward with empty grin

Maybe it's that the hell is full, or maybe it's the day of reckoning
Extraterrestrial radiation or some weird chemicals leaking... leaking!
What ever the reason is you can see the consequence everywhere
The dead are walking the earth, terrified people run and stare

Yesterday advanced metropolis, today just a necropolis
Running people, dead on the streets, rotting corpses now on the their feet

Half of the city is overrun by the decayed forces from the grave
From the city´s cemeteries, hungry putrid tidal wave... tidal wave!
Civilization falling in chaos, laws and rules of men are gone
Absolute horror and fear brought on by everywhere stumbling hellspawn

Yesterday advanced metropolis, today just a necropolis
Running people, dead on the streets, rotting corpses now on the their feet

Metropolis... necropolis... dead on the streets... dead on their feet...

Yesterday advanced metropolis, today just a necropolis
Running people, dead on the streets, rotting corpses now on the their feet

Slowly walking all the long day, attacking a few people on the way
Finally I´m at my home, no more alone I have to roam
At last I see my beautiful wife standing on our balcony
But for some reason she is crying, and with my own rifle shooting me... no!

For better, for worse -now I am cursed
For richer, for poorer -stripped of all fortune
In sickness and health -pain my only wealth
To love and to cherish -even from Hell banished

I try to form a sentence, but only growling comes out
Incomprehensible foul words with peaces of human flesh from my mouth
I feel the bullets hitting me, as I stand and drool on my own lawn
Finally I turn around, take a bullet in my back and stagger on... yeah!

For better, for worse -now I am cursed
For richer, for poorer -stripped of all fortune
In sickness and health -pain my only wealth
To love and to cherish -even from Hell banished

Till death do us part -no life in my heart
Till death do us part -no life in my heart
Till death do us part -no life in my heart
Till death do us part -no life in my heart

Take one whiskey, and you may start to see, how hard it is sometimes to be - a corpse
Take a second one, and you might understand, how difficult it is to stand - on rotten feet
Take a third whiskey, and you might feel, how much it sucks to be - the undead
Take a fourth one, and you may know, how much it hurts to let go - your life

Drink for the sorrow, drink for the pain
Drink for the loss and drink for the shame

Take one more, and you´ll know the truth, why this zombie is feeling so blue - inside
Take another one, and you´ll see crystal clear, all of the living people´s fear - inside
Take one more, and you´ll feel the pain, of rotting, it´s like an acid rain - inside
Take another one, and you will hear, the sound of a dead heart shattering so near - insane..

Drink for the sorrow, drink for the pain
Drink for the loss and drink for the shame

Retribution, payback time, retaliation, vengeance is mine
I will revenge my premature death, soon the man who killed me will take his last breath
Take his... last breath...
Just a faded memory in a dead brain, logical thinking just a frail chain
But still I am at the right place, go in through the window and into a craze

Life for a life, you took mine so it´s only fair I´ll take yours
Life for a wife, I lost mine so I´ll have yours as the first course

Rip, tear, shred and break, eat so much you can´t awake,
back into this state of a living dead, just in case I´ll bite off your head
Bite off... your head...
Gutted, torn, skinned, half eaten, only little bits left to put in a coffin
Gnawing on your severed limbs, your ugly features my biting trims

Life for a life, you took mine so it´s only fair I´ll take yours
Life for a wife, I lost mine so I´ll have yours as the first course

First rays of light from between the black clouds as the sun starts to rise
From the bullet holes I'm bleeding gastric juice and I´m infested with flies
Because it's morning a strange feeling is drawing me to a certain place
Inside a massive building searching for something, this factory is a huge maze

9 to 5 until you die, 9 to 5 a dead way of life
Why can´t you really live when you´re alive? 9 to 5 forced to live a lie

An absurd scene of the wretched and broken, everyone is coming to work
The whole place full of the undead, mutter, trudge and jerk
A sad sight of walking corpses not knowing why they are here
The concept of a working place, totally unclear

9 to 5 until you die, 9 to 5 a dead way of life
Why can´t you really live when you´re alive? 9 to 5 forced to live a lie

In the industrial district slowly breaking through a thin plywood door
First seeing drums and guitars scattered all around the floor
My former band mates still alive at our rehearsal room
They try to attack me but my brown teeth make them share my doom... doom!

Now the Rocking Corpses are coming for you, if you think you'll survive you are just a fool
We'll tear your flesh, we'll eat your brain, total horror, the undead reign

As I´m feasting on the bass player the other ones start to slowly wake
When they realize what they crave, they join me for a nice bassist steak
After feeding we take on the streets dragging guitars and cases of beer
Unholy zombie metal mob, Rocking Corpses are spreading the fear

Now the Rocking Corpses are coming for you, if you think you'll survive you are just a fool
We'll tear your flesh, we'll eat your brain, total horror, the undead reign

Hiding in the shadows you are trembling with fear
Is that the sound of a guitar that is getting near?
Suddenly the stench of death catches up with you
You freeze in horror, there is nothing left to do
Around the corner, followed by flies and roaches
appears your worst nightmare, the Rocking Corpses!

Now the Rocking Corpses are coming for you, if you think you'll survive you are just a fool
We'll tear your flesh, we'll eat your brain, total horror, the undead reign

Walking into my favourite rock bar, I see how much the decor has changed,
since the recently deceased woke up and came inside deranged
The floor is sticky with blood and guts, the walls are splattered red
Partly eaten body parts complete the scene of pure dread

We´ll raise the hell tonight, drink the bars dry, that´s right!
Burn down the house of god, paint the city red with blood

Blood yeah!

There's no bartender to give me a drink so I go and help myself
Beer from the cooler, whiskey and vodka straight from the shelf
There is no taste in anything and a corpse can not get wasted
But I´ll drink all night because the habit can´t be halted

We´ll raise the hell tonight, drink the bars dry, that´s right!
Burn down the house of god, paint the city red with blood

I met a beautiful girl in a bar, she had the nicest shade of grey and green
Someone’s intestine hanging from her mouth, she was a lean mean killing machine
We slobbered, mumbled horrid noises and stared with dead empty eyes
Staggered on the dance floor and were indifferent of our demise

Come on baby kiss me one more time, your breath beyond the grave is the sweetest crime
Let´s make love like only corpses do, peeling grey skin, oh I´m crazy for you

It was love at first bite, then she took me to her home
We were licking each other's faces and gargling blood red foam
Two happy necrophiliacs, rubbing slimy dead skins on each other
Cold cadavers having the most perverse sex, a ritual of forbidden pleasure

Come on baby kiss me one more time, your breath beyond the grave is the sweetest crime
Let´s make love like only corpses do, peeling grey skin, oh I´m crazy for you

Necropolis in flames, the dead have taken over the city
Only zombies on the streets, the sight is not very pretty
But now the last of men are starting to fight back
Organized and armed to their teeth at dawn they attack

Kill the dead, shoot them in the head, stop the disease, don´t let it spread
Eat the living, blood is spilling, fresh human flesh our stomachs filling

Yeah... hahaa... yeah...

This is the final showdown at the crack of dawn
Bullets flying everywhere the battle rages on
But when all the dead men rise again as walking corpses,
the chances for living men seem quite hopeless

Kill the dead, shoot them in the head, stop the disease, don´t let it spread
Eat the living, blood is spilling, fresh human flesh our stomachs filling

Oh yeah, yeahhh... come on... come on... Come ooon!

If you think about it the outcome is very clear
To realize which side will win you don´t have to be a seer
Sickness, horror, gore and pain, but what is the story´s lesson?
Walking corpses, living dead, the next step in evolution! Evolution!

Kill the dead, shoot them in the head, stop the disease, don´t let it spread
Eat the living, blood is spilling, fresh human flesh our stomachs filling

Come on body people! Dead! End! Dead! End!...
