We boarded up the farmhouse
When we ended up in Kansas
After sickness spread across the frontier
We were running out of resources
And running out of options
You said “I’ll go and find some water, stay here”
As you grabbed the .30-30 with the 17 rounds
We opened the front door and you ran
Then we slammed the door and locked it
Nailed the boards back into place
That was the plan

I wish you were here
To help me kill these zombies
But you disappeared
Now you’re probably the undead
And if you were here
Then I wouldn’t be so lonely
But you’re probably out there
Craving the brains left in my head
Still, I wish you were here

All the dead reanimated
Bang upon these walls and windows
I can never seem to get that much sleep
But when I do I dream you’re out there
Fighting hard so you can save us
And I believe…
Until I wake up every morning
To the moaning and the scratching
‘Cause they never stop and never sleep
So my baby if you’re out there
And you’re still a basic human
Come back, please

A week we’re out of food, and now we just ran out of water
I’m so tired I can barely stand
In the distance we hear shouting and some automatic weapons
Again and again and again and again
We take the boards off of the windows
Passing out the guns
And loading the last of our ammunition
The zombies, so confused,
Get cut down in cross fire
Humans win!
