Tyme Stumbled on to these guys after listening to Those Poor Bastards. This is impossible to describe. Great songwriting. Great lyrics. Literally broke out in goosebumps listening to Let Me Help You With The Pain. This is the real deal and I demand this fan base grow. Buy this now and bask in the glow of zombie love. Long live the shufflers!!!!!! Favorite track: Let Me Help You With The Pain.

Darlin I know we’re older Than we were when we were younger But we still have some life left in these bones So take my hand and join me Tonight out on the dance floor It’s early yet we don’t have to go home Remember when I met you You were so young and pretty And I was not half bad that’s what I’m told The years have come and gone But my love for you goes on Who would have thought we’d get so goddamn old So let’s dance like we danced when we were younger Remember how we jitterbugged and twirled We may be shuffling now like two old turtles But I wouldn’t trade this moment for the world So shuffle with me darlin in the moonlight Hold me tight and don’t ever let go I thank my lucky stars that you are my wife The sweetest girl that I have ever known

They took us to the internment camps Big brothers re-enlearnment camps ‘cause we wouldn’t take the vaccine Their Kool Aide suicide And when it all done hit the fan They locked us in they up and ran We watched through the fence As the dance began outside When we finally got that fence down It was too late for my hometown I couldn’t find nobody That survived those first few nights Just hungry shufflers stumbling And distant gunfire rumbling As the sickness kept on spreading Out toward those city lights We’ll be dancing like Saint Vitus With seven angels in his cell But our angels won’t be Heaven-sent They’ll boil straight up from Hell Once the hunger gets inside us Fire burns inside our head Our bones’ll crick when we get the sick And we’ll dance among the dead The stench of the decaying A billion maggots feasting The dead are slowing down now They’re rotting on their feet Just static on the radio Skies black with fattened crows What will the shufflers do When there’s no one left to eat Well I wonder how much time I’ve got Before I join this sorry lot If God is really coming I hope He gets here pretty quick ‘cause so far the devil’s winning Just look at all them corpses grinning I best be heading down the road ‘fore my bones begin to crick ‘fore my belly gets the sick Before my body....... starts to dancing

Can anybody tell me What happened to the trees Do they have some kind of disease Why are they so bare Can anybody tell me Why the black planes keep on flying by And what they’re spraying in the sky Does anybody know Can anybody tell me Why the sun don’t shine no more The way it used to shine before When I was a little boy Can anybody tell me Why the rain burns my skin Why we have to stay in Why can’t we go outside Can anybody tell me What happened to my family What happened to my sanity What happened to my friends Can anybody tell me Why the dead just won’t stay dead no more Why’s my head so goddamn sore Why do my bones ache so Can anybody tell me Why they’re eating people in the street Why do the dead smell so damn sweet Did I wake up in Hell Can anybody tell me If this nightmare’s ever gonna end Will I ever see her face again Will I taste her skin no more Can anybody tell me Has God forsaken everyone Was the blood and body of his only Son all given up in vain

FRANKIE GOT BIT TODAY Frankie got bit today Now he won’t ever be OK Frankie got bit It’s all gone to shit He got bit today Frankie got bit today Now he ain’t got a chance He let down his guard in the graveyard And soon he’ll do the shuffle dance Frankie got bit today He’s already turning cold He ain’t got much time ‘fore he loses his mind And the hunger takes it’s hold So I’m setting him free where the road turns to dirt Where nobody comes around I should put a couple in his brain But I can’t bear to put him down Frankie brother we did our best When the dead spilled up from Hell It won’t be long I’ll see you soon Until then shuffle well

Bury Me Deep 04:41
BURY ME DEEP Bury me deep so I come back no more Bury me deep so I come back no more Don’t wanna come back been back too many times before Put my head and body in separate holes Put my head and body in separate holes Bury me deep and pray for my lost soul Bind my hands and feet with bailing wire Bind my hands and feet with bailing wire Cut my heart out and throw it in the fire Cover up my grave with a ton of stone Cover up my grave with a ton of stone Make sure I’ll spend forever all alone Bury me deep beyond the Devil’s spade Bury me so far down beyond old Scratch’s spade So far down even the worms cannot invade Bury me deep so I won’t come back again Make damn sure that I won’t come back again Let me rot down there forever with my sins Bury me deep and cover me with lime A hole out of which I can never climb So deep I’ll be there till the end of time Bury me deep so I come back no more Bury me deep so I come back no more Don’t wanna come back been back too many times before Don’t wanna come back been back too many times before

Dinnertime 04:46
DINNERTIME Oh it’s dinnertime It’s dinnertime Half past sinner time There’s no repenting now........ Oh it’s dinnertime Yeah it’s dinnertime Half past sinnertime For this God forsaken town.... Looking out my cell The feasting has begun The dead come up from Hell Nowhere left to run Don’t waste your time on prayin’ The devil’s come to town You best pick up that shotgun And put that Bible down ‘cause it’s dinnertime.... This town is finally getting All the Hell that it deserves The dead are back and hungry And dinner has been served You’ll be crying for your momma While she’s chewing through your face Watch out for your sweet heart She wants more than just a taste Oh it’s dinnertime It’s dying time

LET ME HELP YOU WITH THE PAIN The end is coming soon my darlin’ I wish that I could take your place The sick is deep inside you changing Raw flesh is all you long to taste Let me help you shake the Devil I’ll help you step into the light With just one swing of this here shovel Everything will be alright Let me help you with the pain Let me wipe away your tears The sick is burning in your brain I’m here to help you please don’t fear By now you must be feeling hungry By now your throat it must be dry I see you looking at me funny Can’t stop no matter how you try Just close your eyes it will be over I’ll pull your soul back up from Hell Let me help you with the pain Let me help you with the pain...

PLEASE DON’T DO IT YET Please don’t do it yet Let me stay a little longer I’m starting to forget Everything about this place A little bit more time Before you send me to forever Please don’t do it yet Let me linger on your face Hold my hand once more Before I step into the darkness Hold my hand once more Hold my hand and say goodbye Look into my eyes And know that I’ll love you forever Look into my eyes And know my darlin’ that I tried I guess it’s time to go The hunger deep inside is burning I can almost taste you darling The sick is taking over me There’s no time to regret Just press the barrel to my forehead There’s no time to regret Close your eyes and set me free

Put You Down 01:41
PUT YOU DOWN Mamma I loved you as long as I could Just like I promised daddy that I would But today I have to put you down Mamma I love you so dear But now it’s come to me so clear That today I have to put you down
10.
Flesheaters 04:17
FLESHEATERS What sins have we committed What price must we all pay The flesheaters are crawling Up from decaying graves I’ll never let them feast on you They’ll never taste your skin I hear the devil knocking But I won’t let him in The whole world is on fire And the clock is ticking down Block your ears no need to hear Sweet Heaven’s dying sound With all my might I’ll fight for you Until my final breath If they take me I’ll come back And fight for you in death I know that you are tired I’m tired of it too The fight is never ending Just like my love for you So close your eyes and sleep for now I’ll wake you by and by Sweet dreams now no more nightmares Please darlin’ do not cry They’ll never hurt you darlin Left them nothing but your bones Now we’ll always be together You’ll never be alone My strength is back my belly’s full I’ll take us far away Until the dead go back into The ground from where they came

Keep Running 05:57
KEEP RUNNING Just keep running don’t look back Just keep running don’t look back Remember what we told you Remember what you learned Just keep running like me and mommy showed you Get to the hiding spot And wait for our return Run now children run and hide Don’t wait for me just run and hide Remember what you learned now Remember what to do Just keep running like me and mommy told you Get to the hiding spot And I’ll be back for you Aim for the heads and keep moving don’t look back Aim for the heads and keep moving don’t look back Remember what me and mommy taught you Remember always shoot to kill Remember strangers mean danger If the dead don’t get you You know the living will So just keep running don’t wait for me Just keep running don’t wait for me Remember how much your mommy loved you Remember how much I love you too Get to the hiding spot and wait for morning If I don’t make it back You know what to do
12.
My Beloved 04:45
My Beloved I dreamt again last night about you I dreamt of everything we used to do But I woke up and you and everyone I knew were gone The dream is gone, the nightmare has come true I called your name but you refused to answer I searched but you were nowhere to be found Just memories in my head of every word you ever said God is gone the devil’s come to town Where have you gone my beloved Why have you left me all alone This ache in my heart, sure to tear me apart I’m sick, there’s a crick, in my bones The stench of the undead is overwhelming I know that I’ll be joining them one day But I promised you I’d try/ though I don’t remember why What’s the point of going on this way I close my eyes and hear you say you love I feel your gentle breath upon my face And I can hear the Devil, he’s laughing in my ear He asks me if I’d like a little taste

DANCE OF THE SHUFFLERS PART TWO The freed the genie from his jug And then they yanked that dirty rug Right out from underneath us And the whole world up and fell Now they can’t put him back again Looks like the final joke’s on them How does it feel to be us? Welcome to our Hell Looks like forever finally came We lost our spot on the old food chain There’s no rest for the wicked There’s no rest for their prey Now the devil’s army’s coming So I guess you best be running Try to live a little longer You can die another day They’ll be dancing like Saint Vitus While they’re feasting on our bones God’s washed His hands of this unholy land And He’s left us on our own There’ll be no one left to guide us There’ll be no more truth to tell When they break the seventh seal And they ring that dinner bell They wanted to control us We bought the line they sold us But now they’re on the menu too ‘cause we all taste the same when you sold us down the river did you ever stop to figure once you open up the gates of Hell they never close again As the flames of Hell grew hotter They led us to the slaughter As the dead began to dancing Satan laughed and spread his wings The earth cried as he engulfed her With the smell of death and sulfer And they feasted on the living As that bell began to ring

Funny Feeling   Tired of the fight Am I awake or am I dreaming? I think I see the light And then it fades to black again A shovel in my hand I wish someone would stop the screaming Lord help me understand What is wrong and what is right I smell you in the air I try like hell but I can’t find you And I do not know where Or why on earth you’d go and hide And I cannot discern, what is real or imagined I wish that you were here but I got a funny feeling that you died I wake up from a dream And wonder why I can’t stop shaking The echoes of your screams They seem to linger in the air I’m calling out your name Though I know you’ll never answer Am I just going insane Were you ever really here? I’m walking with the dead They seem unable to touch me I’m lying in your bed I feel you rotting at my side What was that you said On the first day that I met you? I’ve been lost inside my head But I’ve got a funny feeling that you died
15.
WELCOME TO THE END Welcome to the end of the world my friends I know that you’ve been busy so glad you could fit us in You’re here why don’t you stay after all it’s judgement day Line up and pay for all your sins Welcome to the end Satan come up from Hell Just to ring that dinner bell In just a little bit the main course shall begin Man had his time now it’s the devil’s turn to dine Pray all you want while they’re chewing through your skin Welcome to the end In the end all that you’ve got is what your arrogance has brought In the end there’s just a hunger won’t go away In the end it’s all for nought, you can smell your own body rot In the end your decadence is just decay Welcome to the end God is gone forever/ Heaven’s closed it’s gates A chorus of the damned begins to sing Satan’s laughing now he spreads his wings Once you had a lover/ Now it’s far too late It’s time to say goodbye to everything ‘cause now the dead are dancing/they’re dancing on your graves Yes now the dead are spilling up from Hell The final judgement handed down/ Nobody will be saved In the end there will be no one left to tell Welcome to the end of the world my friends I know that you’ve been busy so glad you could fit us in You’re here why don’t you stay after all it’s judgement day Line up and pay for all your sins Welcome to the end

LAST MAN STANDING Now I’m the last man standing What price have I won I meted out salvation from the barrel of my gun I’ve buried all my loved ones And now My work is done The last man standing I’m the king of the world
