about

Wrote this song in 2006 and it's a staple closer for our set.
The song is about going to The Crown (Dunedin pub/venue) and then hoping to have any sort of crowd, I conjure a horde of the undead that gate-crash the party.

lyrics

From coal mines to the streets
I can't get my mind off the beat
Spreading like a plague
That begins at your feet
Making you weak
And now as I speak
The dead rise from the depths

Chilled spines collect dust
Minds rot from dreams turned to rust
My imagination brings them out of the night
Into the light
Ready to fright
We've got to fucking...

...go

Weary eyes look from outside
To try 'n escape the night
People start to panic
Find a place to hide
Them entering the room signals the beginning of the end
Breathing hard
Your heart beats fast
Wonder how much longer this can last
But as you're staring at your shoes
There's nothing left to lose
The dancing's all been done
All that's left to do is fucking run...

RUN!

Small Victories Dunedin, New Zealand

I find it futile to try and snap out of my nihilism, so instead I distract myself with small fictions set to fast music.
