lyrics

Let's fight
Back to back till the end and
Let's try not to get bit
But if we do
I swear on everything you hold dear
That you will not become like them
I will dispatch you
In peace you will lie
But if I don’t make it out of this alive
Promise me you’ll do what you must to survive
As the sky falls
All the world burns
Look me in the eye and tell me
Would you kill me if I turned?

So put your back against mine
As they breach the fence line
Try to keep a cool head
or else it's bedtime
If one bite breaks my skin
and lets the virus in
Toss me the grenade
I won't hesitate to pull the pin
Will you kill me when and if
Teeth rip into my flesh
Will you help me rest in peace
Not to resurrect
I need you to promise me
Swear by everything you hold dear
Are we clear
Look at me when you answer
Don't fear
I will do the same for you
Put one in your head
Burn your body won't let them feast
Won't be meat for dead beasts
Who can't sleep
Driven only by the craving for brains
To kill the pain
This reign will never end
Now we must run
Never rest
Lest we become prey
We can never win
So it's best that you know one day
You will have to do it
Say you'll it to me when it's time
Don't wait for a sign
Stick your knife into my mind
and just twist

Let's fight
Back to back till the end and
Let's try not to get bit
But if we do
I swear on everything you hold dear
That you will not become like them
I will dispatch you
In peace you will lie
But if I don’t make it out of this alive
Promise me you’ll do what you must to survive
As the sky falls
All the world burns
Look me in the eye and tell me
Would you kill me if I turned?

Well would you do it
Given options could you choose it
Would you do me in
If I were turned into a truant human
Could you shoot the only dude
That you have left among the ruins
If ghouls were still pursuing you
Could you continue moving through it
I need you to convince me
That you're capable of doing this
I need to assure you
I would do the same for you and if
You should have to do it
Once I've risen
Please keep this in mind
That ain't me
It's just a house
That I no longer live inside
Like those abandoned homes
We broke in and stayed for a while
Ghosts in broken picture frames
Dead strangers' frozen smiles
Through every trial every mile
You've been fearless
Even when supplies are running
Lower than our spirits
Now once this passes
And the monsters are defeated too
I know the new world
Is going to need you
Like I've needed you
So if a sick one should ever attack
And I turn
Do it quick
Run and never look back

Let's fight
Back to back till the end and
Let's try not to get bit
But if we do
I swear on everything you hold dear
That you will not become like them
I will dispatch you
In peace you will lie
But if I don’t make it out of this alive
Promise me you’ll do what you must to survive
As the sky falls
All the world burns
Look me in the eye and tell me
Would you kill me if I turned?

about

Coolzey Fairfield, Iowa

Golden era hip-hop roots planted in black Iowa dirt are the foundation. Growth tempered by alternative era rock influence. This along with a love for the juxtaposition of the dark, horrific nature of life paired with a slapstick and comedic view of the world allow for a wide, unpredictable arsenal ranging from soul-spilling indie bedroom rock to wise-cracking battle rap and on to radio pop. ... more
