Zombies with a New Name

I wake up and the world matches the dreams

Living within my drug-induced screams

I’ve seen too much

The world says it’s not enough

Yet I’ve set the darkness free

Nothing more can rescue this reality.


It’s in my head, I’m in your brain

Zombies with a new name.


Laughter on my lips not what it seems

There’s Monsters dancing in my dreams

Stripped of my last desire

Chewed up and spat in eternal fire

What is this insanity

Plaguing my reality?


It’s in my head, I’m in your brain

Zombies with a new name.


Zombies with a new game.



This week our song was Radiohead’s Idioteque. We had a 100 words. Here’s my interpretation.

I really do appreciate your feedback. Thanks for taking time to read and comment.

    Zombies With A New Name would make a decent Indie rock hipster band that Thom Yorke of Radiohead might see play a show.

    I love the creative take. You did well.

      That’s interesting. I’ve never been big on Radiohead, but after listening a couple of times, I found I liked the song. The beat reminds me of Jem’s “They.”

    The story behind that song is they were making fun of a genre at that time and had no idea it would be so catchey. I love it and I think yours would be a big hit. 🙂

      Wow!! Thank you!

  5. Kim at Let Me Start By Saying says:

    Clean and catchy…and I really like the idea (the phrase, even) of “Zombies with a new game”.

    1. SAM says:

      thanks, Kim! I had no idea that it would be such a hit.
