undead walking

undead hearts are put to rest

a bullet to the brain

can't take away the virus

but we can erase their pain

hell is here and hell is now

the price we pay is grief

wasted shells of former souls

shan't ever find relief

this world still lives a nightmare

irrevocable, you say

yet we wait in wishful hoping

for the dawn of a new day

strength is lost, but come to pass

a smidgen of release

for what entombed must stay so

or must wander here deceased

with acceptance comes the courage

to face those fears they spread

our world will keep on fighting

'til we lay among the dead
