Rob's Room: Nerd Musical Interlude - "George Romero" by the Sprites

"George Romero" by the Sprites.  I heard this track on Henry Rollins radio show a few weeks ago...  it's been rattling around in my head ever since!

"Attention all shoppers..., Attention all shoppers..." (Dawn of the Dead)

It's the end of the world
I wanna live inside a shopping mall
I wouldn't care about the isolation
I'm unconcerned about the Walking Dead

If it's the end of the world
I think I'd handle myself quite well
I wouldn't panic walking past the zombie
I'd try to catch up on some reading and movies

I know all I need to know...
I know all I need to do...
I learned everything from George Romero, Dario Argento,
Maybe Tom Savini, Stuart Gordon, and Sam Raimi
Did they plant the idea or was it always in me?
Do you find me creepy?
Yeah, do I give you the creeps?

It's the end of the world
We could gather half a dozen friends
We'd live in hiding over at JC Penney
Construct a wall to keep the mutants out
When it's the end of the world
We'd land a helicopter on the rooftop
Somebody breaks in through a boarded entrance
Maybe we could make a run for it


Now it's the end of the world
I always thought I would've been more careful
Didn't look to be a serious bite
Will you wait here 'til I come back to life?


My post-apocalytic
Zombie survival fantasy.

"... I'm thinking. Maybe we got a good thing going here. Maybe we shouldn't be in such a hurry to leave..." (Peter, Dawn of the Dead)
