Dropkick Murphys – The Walking Dead lyrics

The greats come alive, the water's on fire
Have I been to this place before
Yeah we danced through the night as the flames burned bright
And the patrons passed out on the floor

What's so new about what you're saying
It's a new generation with the same sad song
What's so new about what you're saying
Just a new generation with the same sad song

The walking dead couldn't tell us any better
It's a tale you've got to live to know
Yeah the story you're telling's from the book I wrote
I've forgotten more than you'll ever know
Cause at the end of the day when the hope fades away
It was an outlook you could never afford
You're on one last stand with the boys in the band
Before the demon strikes the final chord

You've got tons of fans in hell, boy that much I know
Tune me up and turn me on before I go

Just another sad song
