Rise Lazarus Rise
RUFUS REX Lyrics


There’s a carrion curse forever haunting our souls
Until the very day we’re lowered in a hole
At stygian shores we are doomed to run aground
Waiting in fear as the divine spark is snuffed out

No longer will you wander aimless through the afterlife
With the caress of the casket holding you tight
Were destined for worms when our lives conclude
Last rites be damned, death’s the beginning renewed

Rise Lazarus rise
Rise from the grave
Dispel the sleep
Inside your veins

Rise Lazarus rise
Rise from the tomb
Regain your breath
Forever exhumed

Death is just the beginning
Defy fate, reanimate
Death is just the beginning
Defy fate, reanimate
The epitaph wiped clean
The tombstone ground up
Death is just the beginning
Defy fate, re-animate
No need for eulogies
Hymns never sung

Mortuary science will be forever be eclipsed
Funeral directors deprived of their scripts
Denounce the arcane implements of the past
Now that lifeless actors are no longer cast

The final curtain call fills our body with dread
It’s a shame to expire when we meet our end
Cease your offerings for the unfortunate dead
Silence your prayers I’ll give them new life instead

Rise Lazarus rise
Rise from the grave
Dispel the sleep
Inside your veins

Rise Lazarus rise
Rise from the tomb
Regain your breath
Forever exhumed

Death is just the beginning
Defy fate, reanimate
Death is just the beginning
Defy fate, reanimate
The epitaph wiped clean
The tombstone ground up
Death is just the beginning
Defy fate, re-animate
No need for eulogies
Hymns never sung

Death is just the beginning
Defy fate, reanimate
Death is just the beginning
Defy fate, reanimate
The epitaph wiped clean
The tombstone ground up
Death is just the beginning
Defy fate, re-animate

Mortuary science will be forever be eclipsed
Funeral directors deprived of their scripts
Denounce the arcane implements of the past
Now that lifeless actors are no longer cast

"Death is just the begging
Defy fate, reanimate!" Sounds like some slogan that would be on a necromancer's business card...

Connor Ring

“No special deals based on previous life status” on the fine print Because a necromancer rises a king like anyone else as in death we are all equal.

FelineSamantha

Seriously, the art for these RR singles is absolutely gorgeous. They beautifully complement the songs. Hats off to the amazing Mr. Boatwright!

Claws Productions

Dude’s face tho

brightbuttons17

I love the fact that instead of making Creature Feature more heavy, he kept C.F. the same and created Rufus Rex for more heavy music. How wonderful and smart Curtis is, despite most people who start underground and change their music to be noticed by the mainstream.

Atlas

I checked out the bandcamp link. Just an entertaining tidbit, Voltaire loves this whole album

Vincent Neuhaus

Listening to this while reading Herbert West: Reanimator = perfect.

Hiram Bolio

Curtis is such a great guitar player, his melodies and guitar tone are just fantastic.

TheSilversepiroth

It would be interesting if the protagonist for the dead air album was being supplied by the graverobber at large

Mary LePage

If it is possible for any horror band to be better than Creature Feature, it is Rufus Rex.
