Anberlin - Embrace The Dead Lyrics



I'm coming through your district
I see the red light on
I feel the warmth of the street
And I feel the drugs infecting me

Don't come screaming
Cold words, demands
Helpless you cry
Each night you pray that tomorrow you won't die
You're living, barely breathing

Embrace the dead
Raise your hands
To the gods in the sky
That let you breathe tonight

Coming through your district
I see the red lipstick on
You sell yourself so cheap
Sleep with the night to carry on

Don't come screaming
Cold words, demands
Helpless you cry
Each night you pray that tomorrow you won't die
You're living, barely breathing

Embrace the dead
Raise your hands
To the god in the sky
That let you breathe tonight

Breathe tonight
Breathe tonight
Breathe tonight

You're living, barely breathing
You're living, barely breathing
You're living, barely breathing
You're living, barely breathing

You're living
You're living
You're living

Embrace the dead
Raise your hands
To Christ the Lord
That let's you breathe tonight

Anberlin Embrace The Dead Comments
  1. Evan Hartman

    This is better than New Fast Automatic but that version is a lot more prevalent

  2. Acevalor

    This song is a rejected "lost demo"

  3. Hollybee

    same intro as new fast automatic..... >.>

  4. Alexanderthegreatandterrible

    Does anyone know where you can buy this song?

    James Taleporos

    Nowhere unfortunately, it was never officially released. It was recorded as part of a demo (with, producer Matt Goldman if I remember correctly) during the transition between SaGoh and Anberlin, when the band were giving it one last go before deciding if to carry on making music together. Although many credit it as an Anberlin song, it wasn't written as such.

  5. ENZO TELLECHEA

    ANBERLIN FOREVER

  6. aaronbass777

    Anyone here because of the ANBERLIN FOREVER site?? =)

    Aidan Chapel

    Yupp, haha. Anberlin will live forever.

  7. Mikerich 94

    New fast automatic!

  8. Katie Miller

    this was on youtube a few years ago. it's such a good songgg

  9. thevisualedge

    Sorry ... but when you feature Iron Maiden and Wang Chung on your channel and you say "Anberlin sucks," I'm tempted to think Anberlin is awesome, purely based on your crappy taste in music.

  10. Richy Rasmussen

    I'm Atheist, and this is my favorite band...Ever. So, don't blame Atheism on Mr. Friendo's odd...Trolling obsession.

  11. Mariya Angelova

    no matter christian or satan band.the musik is good thats important !

  12. bunnyluv451

    Anberlin does not claim to be a Christian band, legally. Jeez. If you have problems or negative opinions on a band that others enjoy, keep them to yourself. If you don't like the band, don't even click on the song. Do us all that favor.

  13. bunnyluv451

    @atomicfriendo : YOU suck. lol

  14. Mikerich 94

    Same as "New Fast Automatic" :)

  15. Jhero93

    they changed the song to New fast automatic, lyrics and voice melody are different ;)

  16. franman781

    I found this song a while back from an old Anberlin forum thread. It gave me a email account and a password. In the inbox sent from itself, i found the mp3.

    Talk about viral...

  17. Kayleigh Wins

    "Embrace the Dead", was also recorded as a demo track and is often mistaken as an Anberlin song, however, the song didn't make it onto the band's debut album as it didn't constitute the stylistic direction the band wanted to head in.

  18. Supercell08

    @rockergaNy they did an in-depth podcast with AP where they spoke about all of this :)

  19. breathnac92

    @gorgof4500 yea it works perfectly thanks are there any other old demos i can find?

  20. breathnac92

    @gorgof4500 shit it doesnt work lol any other way i can get it?

  21. breathnac92

    @gorgof4500 hey can u send me that demo i cant find this anywhere id really appreciate it!!

  22. jsjsjshs fofofod

    I LOVE THIS SONG!

  23. Jay N

    @gorgof4500 do you think its possible you could send it to me?

  24. Supercell08

    @jc4you thats cool, you've just misunderstood that's all. What I wrote is pretty much word for word Stephen's explanation in the interview.

  25. LadyCat Fashion

    Anything by Anberlin is great song, lol ^.^

  26. Molly Barger

    Okay, this song proves it. Anberlin has always sounded awesome.

  27. drake marcos

    @Ikeslayer87 I downloaded it on Napster back in the day...as well as Anberlin's first album...probably around 2003

  28. jesmock

  29. jesmock
