about

"Raise Hell"

lyrics

Well that grim reaper, he don't care
How much loss your heart can bear
He's got a job to do, don't matter what you do
You're just biding your time til your time is through

Well that grim reaper works everyday and night
And he'll tell ya boy, that ain't no kinda life
He's got kids to keep alive and a couple ex wives
It's the deadest of dead end jobs just trying to survive

Raise the dead! (Raise the dead!)
Raise hell! (Raise hell!)
Nobodies gonna raise you up until you raise yourself
Raise the dead! (Raise the dead!)
Raise hell! (Raise hell!)
You don't stop chasing dead ends you're gonna kill yourself

Well that grim reaper gets paid just enough to get by
Not enough to thrive but enough to stay alive
He's a middle man, works enough to keep him occupied
So he'll never notice the noose in his tie.

Raise the dead! (Raise the dead!)
Raise hell! (Raise hell!)
Nobodies gonna raise you up until you raise yourself
Raise the dead! (Raise the dead!)
Raise hell! (Raise hell!)
You don't stop chasing dead ends you're gonna kill yourself

There's death march that goes from 9 to 5
It's usually longer days but they stiff you on overtime
If you think about it, it's a brilliant design
Gonna pay you enough, they gonna pay you enough
Gonna pay you enough to keep you alive til you meet your demise

Raise the dead! (Raise the dead!)
Raise hell! (Raise hell!)
Nobodies gonna raise you up until you raise yourself
Raise the dead! (Raise the dead!)
Raise hell! (Raise hell!)
You don't stop chasing dead ends you're gonna kill yourself
