I was born a bonny zombie baby
It’s the only life I’ve known
But years and moons have passed since then
How I’ve zombie-grown!
Growing up sure ain’t easy
Juicy brains don’t come for free
And there’s no chance those screaming humans
Will ever let me be!
See, I’ve never craved attention
I just want an axe-free life
Somewhere peaceful in the country
Where I can find a loving, kind, decaying wife
I never knew my zombie father
Spent no childhood catching ball
No mother there to catch me
When rotting limbs would fall
And I don’t know if you’ve noticed
But zombie role models are lacking
We’re just used in films to show off
The hero’s muscles as they’re hacking
And don’t you see the irony
In claiming we love brains
Then trying to bash our heads in.
It’s prejudice ingrained!
I don’t wanna fight you.
Set aside your sword.
Quit swinging that bloody baseball bat.
Let’s sit, and have a word.
I know my tongue’s necrotic
But there’s a message ‘neath my growling
If only you would listen, really listen,
We could end this midnight prowling
Our demands are very few:
Just leave us all alone,
In basements, malls or graveyards,
Where we can rot and roam.
We’re the next step in evolution:
These are Darwinian growing pains.
We don’t want to harm you…
We just want to eat your brains!
