  • (Bring out your dead
    Bring out your dead
    Bring out your dead
    Bring out your dead)

    Invaders came on phantom ships
    Sailed the Black Sea west to Sicily, yeah, yeah
    The sick, the dying, and the dead
    All that was left from this cursed disease, yeah, yeah

    It was the fleas onboard that bit infected rats
    Got blood inside of the fleas, yeah, yeah
    Soon the ghost ships tied up to the docks
    The path of the plague was complete, yeah, yeah

    The sweet smell of rosies, a pocketful of posies
    You can't mask the fragrance of death in their beds
    There's typhus in the air, and ashes everywhere
    Amongst the sick, the dying, and the dead

    Feral creatures feasting on the dead
    Devour rancid human meat, yeah, yeah
    Death and sickness permeate their bones
    Rich or poor, they're dragged through the streets, yeah, yeah

    Open up your eyes, so you can see
    All the sick, the dying, and the dead

    Die, die, die!
    Die, die, die!
    Die, die, die!
    Die, die, die!

    The sick, the dying...
    And the dead Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
