When lonesome came over me
A future shadow
Her ghost stood there, sang to me
Farewell, so long

I’ll awake you
From this living sleep
We’ll walk the shore
Where you were born
In bed with me

Although I cheat off your things
March forward, my son
A battle beyond frozen hills
Only for dawn's here

We will rise from the killing floor
Like a matador

The stained glass
Of bovine eyes
Can see right through
Every truth-soaked lie

Letters will trace every step
Out of this world
And every ditch, every ditch

We will be where you will be no more
No more

The stained glass
Or the hangman’s ass
We served you well
Now we’re coming back

Out of the wake cross this ghost
We’ll jump the gates
And left to rise, we will rise

We will rise from the killing floor
Like a matador

And the dead live (ah)
May the dead live (ah)
And the dead live (ah)
What more can we give? (ah)

Let the dead live (ah)
May the dead live (ah)
And the dead live
The dead live (ah)
