Dog at the window still
Looks all day never gets her fill
'Cause a glance means a chance
To break the birds out congregating

I have seen a look like that
And licked your chops from where you sat
Make your kill for a thrill
And you don't mind waiting

Rise up your dead
There's a life in the old girl yet
Rise up your dead

When it bums you out
All the hunters sprung to pounce
And at best it's a mess
Like a nest infested

You remember there's more than this
There always was and always is
Tend the artist in your charges
You are full invested

Rise up your dead
There's a life in the old girl yet
Rise up your dead

And if you need to read your mindless mag
Call me up for tickets, we'll go see sugar land
And it gets better even when it's been a drag
Just move to the madness
You move your body to the band and rise up

Rise up your dead
Rise up your dead
Rise up your dead

Rise up your dead
Rise up your dead
Rise up your dead

Oh, come on the summers coming
The rains been heavy and the rivers runin'
Loose the calf , it's been tough
But it's fast and groovin'

We got sticks to a hundred piles
We got stories that lead to smiles
We gotta twirl with this world
I can feel it movin'

Rise up your dead
There's a life in the old girl yet
Rise up your dead

Rise up your dead
There's a life in the old girl yet
Rise up your dead
