Raise The Dead

Album: Raise The Dead (2008)
  • Go on and pull yourself up
    We climb, we climb, we climb, we climb
    Down there they get you, down there
    Again and again, forever and ever
    Go on and give it a tug
    Go on, pull up, I know it's tough
    But down there it's deeper than deep
    That hole is so steep
    And things are heavier

    Hear it now, the night is calling us
    Wave your hands and summon the spirits up
    Tonight, tonight, tonight
    we raise the dead!

    The dark is plaguing our hearts
    Pumping through us and collecting in our deepest parts
    Well down there it's dripping like tar
    And it's stuck to your arms
    And it's sticking to you too long
    The time is higher than high
    Something lurking in your shadow that keeps trying to hide
    Oh no, want it alive
    To get out, to get out, to get out of your insides

    Hear it now the night is calling us
    Wave your hands and summon the spirits up
    Tonight, tonight, tonight
    we raise the dead!

    Go on and pull yourself up, up, up
    Go on, pull up, I know it's tough
    But down there they get you, down there
    Again and again
    Forever and ever
    Hear it now, the night is calling us
    Wave your hands and summon the spirits up
    Tonight, tonight, tonight
    Tonight, tonight, tonight
    we raise the dead! Writer/s: Alexander Greenwald
