We As Human - Zombie Lyrics

Pretty plastic bottles
Lay beside your bed
With every dose you swallow
You lose your head

(And how) is your heart still bleeding?
(Where) did the human go?
(Yeah) they might keep you breathing
(Oh) but they numb your soul

Oh, where did all your fire go?

You're on the inside
And I know you're fighting
On the outside
Your flesh is dying
But this is not your funeral
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up the zombie
So long over medicated
Thinking nothing's wrong
Cause you're so sedated
This is not your funeral
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up the zombie!
Wake up the zombie!

You started forgetting who you really are
I'm getting kinda worried
You've been gone so long
(And how) is your body sleeping?
(Where) did the human go?
Has it stopped the healing?
(Oh) Have you lost you control?

Oh, where did all your fire go?

You're on the inside
And I know you're fighting
On the outside
Your flesh is dying
But this is not your funeral
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up the zombie
So long over medicated
Thinking nothing's wrong
Cause you're so sedated
This is not your funeral
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up the zombie!
Wake up the zombie!

Pretty plastic bottles
Lay beside your bed
Gonna lose your head

  41. Erica E

    I saw we as human at winter jam in 2014 and they are SO good! but of course skillet is my favorite band of all time. John Cooper is bae forever. 😍

    Erica E

    No that's not what I meant :( that is actually the first time I have used that word. Looks like I won't be using that again. So much for trying to be like the cool kids. (Yes, music reference intended!)

    Mackle Cooper

    +Erica E it means babe most commonly but now alot of internet trolls are saying it means shit in Danish which doesn't apply to us since were speaking English not Danish.

    Aliyah A

    +Mackle Cooper technically it means 'before anyone else"

    Prussian Potato

    so true! 😍

    Jimmy Channga

    Erica E i seen them at winter jam too. i really loved it

  42. Michael Kulow

  46. Dakota Linsteadt

    Skillet will be at winter jam in Springfield mo

  47. Morghan May

    The lead singer does sound alittle like andy biersack from black veil brides

    Alex ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ

    @Morghan May Justin also looks like Andy.

    Skull Fuckers

    +Morghan May and the guy from 3 Days Grace, and Skillet. I don't know why people like this style but they all sound the same to me.

    Christopher Moore

    @Placenta Claus That's it. That is definitely it


    +Placenta Claus John Cooper IS the guy from skillet xD

    chris crosby

    I'd say he sounds more like tge lead singer of Breaking Benjamin rather than sounding like Andy

  48. Legend Maker

    I met WAH's lead singer a couple of years ago at WinterJam. Was pretty awesome!

    Faith Wright

    You r lucky😠😀

    John is best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  77. klgrl53


  78. Madison stevens

    im pretty sure
    john produces we as human

  79. tdpdrummer

    ikr! came because of skillet now im a WAH fan also

  80. nasa niente

    john,you aare the best of rock!!!!!!!!!!
    also we as human

  81. lMixedBloodl

    I listened this just for John Cooper, but damn, this band is so cool!

  82. DarkKing97

    If i remember correctly Skillet was the band that "discovered" them to take them to a larger place in christian music. Kind of like TFK "discovered" Nine Lashes

  83. Eric Stacy

    yeah but because of John Cooper making a label and putting them on it it helped them out allot

  84. craigime

    they're signed to Atlantic

  85. craigime

    they're from nashville

  86. Marcos Leite

    john actually got a cd from them at a concert and teamed up with a producer to form a new label and signed we as human onto it. We as human pretty much got big because of John.

  87. theavengingewok

    We As Human is "Skillet Approved", when you buy Rise, or at least i know for a fact if you buy the deluxe edition, you get a little thing that says We As Human is Skillet approved, and it gives you a code that gives you We Fall Apart and Strike Back singles for free.

  88. Green eyed gaming

    Lacey is from Flyleaf and John is from Skillet, sorry for the possible confusion :p

  89. Axle Greyson Archer

    i am amazed that they got john cooper from skillet to do a song with them

  90. mcmacattak

    This album is crazy good, definitely a fan.

  91. mcmacattak

    Think she meant they tour with them

  92. Miss Hathor

    pretty good

  93. Green eyed gaming

    What song is with red?

  94. misscaseyr

    We as Human sings with red, Flyleaf and Skillet.....I just....can't even <3<3
