Gone cast away in time
Evil yours, now evil mine
So I robbed you blind, the voices
In my head suggest a less than
Peaceful side

The endless possibilities
Controlling 9-3-5

You can't break me, crushed the
Fears of yesterday
You can't take me, barriers of trust will fade.

I've stood in the dark, been
Waiting all this time
While we damn the dead I'm
Trying to survive, I'm not ready to die

Damned, watch the masses fall
Burn it down, control 'em all
(Help me up) Make me crawl, to daddy's little
Girl I'll read the writings on the wall

While cast into the nothingness
The final curtain call

You can't break me, crushed the
Fears of yesterday
You can't take me, barriers of trust will fade.
I've stood in the dark, been waiting all this time
While we damn the dead I'm
Trying to survive, I'm not ready to die

Through the madness we find
Loyalty is no match for power
Save your body or lie, left to rot in
Your darkest hour
Prayers won't help you now as long as your mine

You can't break me, crushed the
Fears of yesterday
You can't tae me, barriers of trust will fade.

I've stood in the dark, been
Waiting all this time
While we damn the dead I'm
Trying to survive

And I'll control the world one
Person at a time
As I damn the dead I'm trying to
Survive, I'm not ready to die

Oh!

I'm not ready to die
I'm not ready to die!
I'm not ready to die!
I'm not ready to die!

    It is a zombie song. First reason: you can unlock it in the "call of the dead" dlc-pack by doing the easter egg. Second reason: look at line 7: "... Controlling 935". These aren't any random numbers: it's the shortform of "group 935" from "cod zombies"; the group of nazi scientists, who created the zombies with element 115. And an other reason in the text: "... Read the writings on the wall": in every zombiemap the walls ware full of symbols, writings and paintings.

    M shadows was asked to write this for the black ops zombie maps. This has nothing to do with the death of the rev like people think, in fact this was the last song he ever got to record. The lyrics are all through a persons point of veiw if this was a life or death happening. Biggest a7x fan forever

    Ok, it's probably just me, but listening to the lyrics closely, i thought it was "say goodbye to your life," not "save your body or lie. " i listened to that part over and over again and that's what i think it is.
