This is not natural
A bunch of holes where the dead used to be underground
Forget supernatural
'Cause all those resting in peace are out walking the streets
Yeah, with no heartbeat

Across the sky they can hear you on the other side
A scream that's loud enough to wake the dead
And all alone you bought tickets for the nightmare as you wake the dead

Oh, this is not possible
An empty hole in your chest where your heart used to beat
Does this mean what I think it means?
How could both you and me be about as dead as we could be?
Yeah, with no heartbeat

Across the sky they can hear you on the other side
A scream that's loud enough to wake the dead
And all alone you bought tickets for the nightmare as you wake the dead

Take a walk with me
Walk with the dead
'Cause you knew that we'd have to die sometime
Well, darling, tonight could be...

Let your voice shred miles (of diamond skies)
Just to walk as they wake in the darkness (yeah)
Well, darling, tonight could be a beautiful night to die
(A beautiful night to die, yeah)

Wake the dead
Fuck it, you're dead
Wake the dead
Fuck it, you're dead
Wake the dead
Wake the dead

Across the sky they can hear you
A scream that's loud enough to wake the dead
And all alone you bought tickets for the nightmare as you wake the dead
Wake the dead

Across the sky they can hear you on the other side
A scream that's loud enough to wake the dead
And all alone you bought tickets for the nightmare as you wake the dead
Wake the dead
Wake the dead
Wake the dead
Wake the dead
Wake the dead
