Hey, bayou star
The walking dead
Ye who shall sleep forever
I have no room upon my back
For your immaculate deception

Hey, bayou star
The walking dead
Ye who shall sleep forever
Our dead still move
In mobile tombs
Tombs made of flesh and bone

Things come back around

We love our dead
We put their graves above ground
Their graves above ground

Hey, bayou star
The walking dead
Ye who shall sleep for always

    Shoutout to Louisiana! Thank you... no one ever gives Louisiana credit. Except for "EI" by Nelly and "Song of the South" and "Southern Comfort" and "Fiddle in the Band" and just a few others... no one!
