Slayer – Live Undead lyrics
(Lyrics: Araya, King; Music: Hanneman)

Cascaded darkness
Walls close in on me.
Nailed shut but my eyes still see.
Severe anguish as my body evolves.
The pain of life after death it resolves.

Lead: hanneman

Emptiness in twilight's rebirth,
The faint sounds of shoveled earth.
Madness growing as your mind dissolves.
Merely secret in my dreams.

Lead: king

Night grows cold, twilight's near,
On the edge of madness the wounds are sheared.
Forms of hanging, flesh shredded carcass
No spared breath.
Imprisoned in a shell, ready to explode.
Dead soul,
Stone cold,
Out into the night.

Voices inside my head
Hold me under.
Voices oppress.
Like roaring thunder.
An echo bouncing inside my brain.
How much can I take of the pain,
The pain!

A war raging deep inside my head,
A split decision that will end with me dead.

You see the agony in my eyes,
Protruding aimless,
I think it's time to die.

Lead: king

A cannibal's desire feeds the fire
That burns in your head.

Lead: hanneman

Intense pain eats away at your brain,
Thorazine pumping through your veins.

Lead: king

Death walks inside you,
Smell death around you,
Hell's evil spell takes a soul,
Hear the sound of the bell
Counting off death tolls.

Lead: king

Laughing as you eternally rot,
Searching for human flesh
And life's blood.

Lead: hanneman

Live Undead.

Live Undead meanings

    This song is about the trepidation towards the afterlife; it's not death you fear since there's no avoiding it, but rather the notion of the difference, and exactly how different the afterlife will be/is, and you are afraid to accept it even though you are already in your spiritual form. However once you realize that your attempts to try to rekindle a past life are futile after your departure from it, it is much easier to accept what has happened to you, and forget about your fetid Earthly carcass.
