Lyrics
There’s silence all around – nobody make a sound.
Only my quiet footsteps falling to the ground.
But then a muffled groan and all my hope is gone:
There’s just too many now – looks like I’ve gotta run!

But time is running out…
But time is running out…

I turn around to find my exit is shut off.
So then I draw my gun, prepare a molotov.
I shoot one in the leg and it doesn’t help at all:
It may be injured but it isn’t gonna to fall!

And time is running out…

(chorus)
Zombies! An infestation making a meal of our crumbling nation!
All the people you knew: they’ve wound up dead or a zombie too.
I’m the last known survivor, wishing that I just had something to die for!
But they never feel pain – they’re marching towards you to eat your brain!

Out of the crowd I battle, running for my life.
Cut through the barb-wire fence with my Swiss-army knife.
I think of all my friends but there’s no time to mourn:
Up to the roof I climb – I should be safe till dawn!

But time is running out…

(chorus)

I’m sending out an S.O.S.
I’m sending out an S.O.S.
I need someone to come and rescue me!!

(chorus x2)

Footnotes
For Great Justice! combines many new songs with some of my older ones and they don’t come much older than this: Zombies! was the third song I ever wrote and the first to be released on YouTube. It’s so old, it actually pre-dates my songsfrompaul channel! Back then, I was just using a fairly-crappy acoustic guitar (plugged into my laptop’s microphone jack) and singing into my embedded webcam’s microphone. A lot has changed since then but this song has remained almost exactly the same!
