Stellar Corpses Santa Cruz, California

Dead stars, vampire kisses and teenage witchcraft—welcome to the twisted fantasies of STELLAR CORPSES. Often labeled “psychobilly” or “horrorpunk,” this five-piece band of brothers delivers their own deadly concoction of anthemic punk, melodic metal, and gothic rockabilly. STELLAR CORPSES have toured the world with bands like Misfits, Tiger Army, The Damned, and others. ... more

Track Name: Respect The Dead
They say what doesn't kill you makes you strong.
It took the Living Dead to prove them wrong.
With all the fucked up ways that they have died.
Their only claim to fame was suicide.

Doesn't matter what you do,
Your pathetic life is through.
Teenage zombies seeing red.
Respect the Living Dead!

With confidence and willingness to die,
By jumping off a roof ten stories high,
Or in a highspeed motorcycle wreck.
Now's the chance to pay your last respects.

Doesn't matter what you do,
Your pathetic life is through.
Teenage zombies seeing red.
Respect the Living Dead!
Track Name: Cemetery Man (2007)
Last night I saw you cryin' in the graveyard.
I watched the wind blow through your long black veil.
As tears fell from your eyes, you had me hypnotized.
Please save me from this god damned living hell.

Each night I watch the dead wake from their slumber,
And each night I must lay them back to rest.
They'd say that I'm insane,
Who would believe me anyway?
So I load my gun and do what I do best.
I'm the Cemetery Man.

Last night I had to execute my baby.
One bullet to the head and now she's gone.
I thought that she had died,
Crossed over to the other side.
If she comes back you know there's something wrong.
I'm the Cemetery Man. Whoah, The Cemetery Man.
Track Name: Stalkin' After Midnight
I'm always stalking after midnight,
Out in the moonlight shining from above.
I'm always stalking after midnight,

I stop to bag a bum, cuz that's an easy one,
And baby it's what I gotta do.
I kill a nice old lady thinking just maybe,
The next one's gonna be you.

I'm always stalking after midnight
Out in the moonlight shining from above.
I'm always stalking after midnight,
Searchin' for my love. My love.

I'm always stalking after midnight,
Out in the moonlight shinin from above.
I'm always stalking after midnight,
Searchin' for my love. My love.

I stop to kill a call girl, maybe just a school girl,
Oh baby, that's my favorite kind.
At first she might not like me,
And she might try and fight me,
But one bite and she'll be mine.

I'm always stalking after midnight,
Out in the moonlight shining from above.
I'm always stalking after midnight,
Searchin' for my love.
Track Name: Dr. Plainfield
I know a gruesome man who lives up on a hill.
You might think he's just a fool.
But in his basement is where he kills.
He's known as the Plainfield Ghoul.

Is he that different from you and me?
There's something wrong with his brain.
There could be something that you don't see.
You could be going insane...
Like Dr. Plainfield!

His mad obsession takes him over.
He robs the graves of freshly dead.
He brings them back home to his mother,
But she lies lifeless in her bed.

Is he that different from you and me?
There's something wrong with his brain.
There could be something that you don't see.
You could be going insane...
Like Dr. Plainfield.He chops his patients into blood and bone.
He's surrounded by the dead.
He realizes that he's all-alone,
Except the voices in his head.

Is he that different from you and me?
There's something wrong with his brain.
There could be something that you don't see.
You could be going insane...
Like Dr. Plainfield!
Track Name: Pieces Of You
At night I lie awake baby dreamin' of your eyes.
They stare at me helplessly as I muffle out your cries.
A hacksaw and a razor blade is all I'm gonna need,
To make you scream, make you cry, to make you fuckin' bleed!
Pieces of you. Pieces of you. Pieces of you.

I used to cry myself to sleep just waiting for your call.
Now your pretty face is always hanging on my wall.
An ear, a lip and piece of flesh, an eyeball and a toe.
I'll take these pieces of you with me everywhere I go!
Pieces of you. Pieces of you. Pieces of you.
Track Name: Leave A Stellar Corpse
Corpses rise from the grave,
And not the kind that stumble in a drunken daze.
They flood your city streets and take it over.

Never thought that you could kill,
A human life but soon you will.
You'll take your life and live it for all it's worth.
And if we never die, we'll never be alive.
They say when hell is full the dead will walk the Earth!

Live fast, die young, leave a Stellar Corpse!

Choices are yours to make,
About the rules to follow and the rules to break,
Until the day your life is over.

Don't let it pass you by,
Don't be afraid to die.
Some call it death we'll call it our second birth.
And when we start to rise, see the fire in our eyes,
And know when hell is full the dead will walk the Earth!

Live fast, die young, leave a Stellar Corpse!
