When the news broke
Everyone thought it was a joke
Special reports led to warning sirens
And air strikes
That seems real to me
We saw the movies,
We thought we knew what to do –
But we didn't
If I had known the last time I saw my family Was gonna be the last time
I saw my family…
Well, there’s a last time for everything
I guess
They said it was under control -it wasn't
They said there was
Nothing to worry about-
There was.
I wish I could help you,
I wish I could give you good news
I wish I could guide you to safety,
But every sanctuary has fallen.
There’s nowhere to rest.
I’ll broadcast on this frequency again tomorrow.
It’s bed time-
Do you want me to sing a song?
Good luck trying to sleep
If you can hear this you're obviously alive
But I may be dead
This is a recording –
I stopped doing live broadcasts
Over a month ago
I was forced to move up to the roof
When they broke into the station
I don't have enough water to last long, Although the rain
Has been good to me this week
There may still be hope for you
But there's none for me
Sorry to get all Kafka on you-
I don’t want to be cynical
But it’s going to take one amazing cavalry
To save my day
Don't follow this signal, run away from it;
The city has been completely overtaken
If you have food or water,
Start rationing now
Don’t trust anyone you meet-
We’re all monsters now
Maybe I’m just being dramatic
This broadcast will loop
For as long as the battery lasts
That’s all I have to offer-
Take care of each other
Good morning campers!
This is Abby, rocking the morning shift
Actually the afternoon shift,
The evening shift,
The graveyard shift- speaking of which…
The studio is surrounded-
There are thousands of them
Pushing against the walls, the windows-
It’s safety glass, but still,
Everything has a breaking point.
If you somehow
Haven’t caught on to this yet
They want to eat you
They’re slow and weak
But there are a lot of them
Don’t attract attention
They can smell you-
The more you smell like them the better
They’re dumb but you can't fool them
Keep running
Remember the zombies are here –
It’s real
If they ever make it in,
I’ll give you my best horror movie scream,
But for now I’m good- who knows,
I might even outlast them…
