lyrics

can you hear the echoes in the shadows?
they're suggesting such terrible things
hijacking all sense of right and wrong,
and the ecstasy of terror it brings
they got it figured out, they got it all set
waiting downtown under the minarets
they have an alibi, they have a getaway,
they're lighting the fuse like a cigarette

on a list of who is who
they have always been whoever
they have been roaming
this earth forever

did you see the lights over the city?
kinda strange how they hovered all night
i heard it drove quite a few insane,
clawed out their eyes to escape the fright
they got a master plan, they got a secret base
they got a thing for eviscerating wildlife
they have a tractor beam, they have a stealth device,
they got a billion acres to probe tonight

on a list of who is who
they have always been whoever
they' have been roaming
this earth forever

everything that goes bump in the night is here to specifically haunt you
might as well curl up and die throw in the towel and go run and hide

did you feel the hairs on your neck rise?
something subtle creeping up from below
shapes stirring out in the cemetary,
the whole family is crawling on home
they got an appetite, they got relentless drive,
they all gather on the porch with blank eyes
they have the bloodlust, they have time to spare
they are here to feed and no compromise

everything that goes bump in the night is here to specifically haunt you
might as well curl up and die throw in the towel and go run and hide

about

The Gingerdead Men Akron, Ohio

The Gingerdead Men (tGDM) were a bad-ass, rock’n roll band. They shunned trends and embraced complete creative freedom. They tought rock’n roll should be loud, to the point, and capable of shaking your pants and bobbing your head. Their lyrics told tall tales about the future, the past, monsters and more. Somehow, it worked. Well.

tGDM believed that massive amplification was ALWAYS the answer.
