The Lyrics

An all throughout horror story to the tune of a power ballad, can that ever be good? Anyway, inspiration to it came from seeing the remake of the movie "Dawn of the Dead" and leaving the theatre with the same feeling as after having played DOOM 1 for the first time many years ago.
It's four o'clock in the city
And the graveyard shift is up
But we don't feel no pity
And we ain't gonna stop
No rest for the living few
Cos we just wanna bite and chew
Baby, baby, we eat brains tonight

Outside of conscience
We're hungry and fast
Inside a mall there's a few mensch
Maybe some of the last
Hiding there they have a clue
We are gonna eat them too
Brainy baby, we'll eat yours tonight

We ARE coming now hon'
Like a German running after brew
And you just cannot outgun
This damned undead crew
We're staring at the face of you
That we are gonna eat right through
Brainy baby, we need brains, all right!
Peter Andersson

Lovely, k1chyd - haven't listened to that one for years, but it's made me want to get ol' Eliminator out again... except that I've only got it on vinyl which don't fit in the car ;-)

Thanx Phil. It's truly their best album. I remember when they toured Sweden after it came out and some reporter asked them why they had given all their previous albums Spanish titles and now suddenly given this one an English title. They answered: "English title? Is 'El Iminator' an English title?" :-)
