Track Name: Sewn Together Wrong (The Frankenstein Song)
This body is not my own
Doesn't it show?
It's all sewn up, pretty beaten, and old
These limbs are just flailing around
Out of control

And it's pretty clear to me
These eyes I use to see
Used to see something else
Yes it's pretty clear to me
These lungs I use to breath
They belong on a shelf

You made me this way
Out of flesh and blood
Put the pieces together
But where is the love

I'm trying to hold on
But my stitches keep coming out
I'm trying to keep cool
But your pitchforks don't help
If I could just say one thing
Can't you see this isn't me
I was made by a mad man and his crazy dreams

There's a lack of blood
Flowing through these veins,
And I find it hard breath
What I think should be the air
Has been replaced by electricity

What is my purpose
What is my purpose
Don't you have the answers?
What is my purpose
Am I only than worthless?
Are you just going to stand there?

You gave me this life
Now take responsibility
You gave me these eyes
But it's you who can't see

That I'm trying to hold on
But my stitches keep coming out
And I'm trying to keep cool
But I just burnt down your house
If I could just say one thing
Get a word in edgewise
I know it's not much, but It's my only life

I'm trying to hold on
But my stitches keep coming out
You tell me keep cool
But your pitchforks don't help
If I could just say one thing
Can't you see this isn't me?
I was made by a mad man and his crazy dreams
Track Name: I'm Sorry To Hear That, Mr. Talbot... But I Have To Put You Down (The Wolf Man Song)
The night is coming again
And again I'll spend it alone
Just how it should be
When I have a hunger that just won't concede

Please believe
I have no control over this feeling
My heart's beating faster than any
Human I have ever eaten

Get to a safe distance
Stock up on some silver things
Be wary when the full moon shines on me
Lock up the doors
The wolves are out tonight
I am a monster
Tear you open
Not a single bit of remorse for my actions
Cause in the morning
I won't remember
And you'll just be a pile of bones, sitting in the ditch somewhere

I was walking along one night
When I heard a noise that gave me a fright
I didn't know what to expect
When this dog came out and bit my neck

And ever since, once a month
I turn into a real grump
I get all hairy and scary and toothy and clawing
Little red hood never saw me coming

Get to a safe distance
Stock up on some silver things
Be wary when the full moon shines on me
Lock up the doors
The wolves are out tonight
I am a monster
Tear you open
Not a single bit of remorse for my actions
Cause in the morning
I won't remember
You'll just be a pile of bones, sitting in the ditch somewhere

I don't play basketball
I don't go to school
I don't fight vampires
I wish that I were cool
Like that guy from that movie
Who always takes his shirt off
I think he was a shark boy once
That's not really important

Get to a safe distance
Stock up on some silver things
Be wary when the full moon shines on me
Lock up the doors
The wolves are out tonight
I am a monster
Tear you open
Not a single bit of remorse for my actions
Cause in the morning
I won't remember
You'll just be a pile of bones, sitting in the ditch somewhere
Track Name: I Love You, But... (The Zombie Song)
It's night again
We're all alone,
No one else,
This world is all our own.

In your arms now,
Where I lay,
Outside these walls
They all decay

I can hear them banging on the door
Don't want to face them anymore
But we can't last here for eternity
God help, I don't want to be a zombie

Don't want to be turned into a zombie
Don't want to eat people's brains while they sleep
Don't want to be a living dead corpse of me, eating you

I know it's hard
Living like we do
That's okay, you have me
And I have you

Sometimes you may
Slow me down
But how would I stay sane
Without you around

Together we've been through it all
Broken hearts and zombies breaking through walls
This is just one more test to get through
I really hope they don't eat you

Don't want you to turn into a zombie
Don't want you to eat my brains while I sleep
Don't want you to be a living dead corpse of you, eating me

I hear them stomp
I hear them chew
I think they're finally
Breaking through

It's been good, my love
It's been fun, but now its
Us - Zero
Zombie Apocalypse - One

I turn and I run towards the back door
I hate to leave you but hey, you're slower
And I know we can't both get out alive
And I'd really like to be the one that survives

Don't want to be turned into a zombie
Don't want to eat people's brains while they sleep
So sorry you got turned into a zombie
I'm just glad it wasn't me

Don't want to be turned into a zombie
Don't want to eat people's brains while they sleep
So sorry you got turned into a zombie
Now please don't eat me
Track Name: Sunrise (The Vampire Song)
There's a tall thin man sitting in the darkness
When he motions for you to come near
You don't know what it is but something draws you closer
He leans next to you and whispers in your ear

He says
I was human once I was just like you
I had hopes and dreams, a reflection too
Sure, now I can fly And now I won't die.
But I'll never see a sunrise And I'll never see my eyes

Sometimes life bites hard and all you have are dulling fangs
They're not too good for much if they can't pierce skin
I do have this cool cape I wear around my mansion
If You would come and visit me then I would let you in
But you won't let me in

I used to love garlic bread with my spaghetti
I used to play outside every day
Now I can't wear my favorite cross necklace
Although I do make a killer blood rose

And the hardest part about losing your life
Is knowing that you don't get an after-one
And the hardest part about being immortal
Is running out of words to put in songs

Sure, now I can fly
And now I won't die
But I'll never see a sunrise
