Zombie Fistfight
Combichrist Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Pre-synch to the body
Flesh worn away
Hurting up for a heart attack, but there is no time to breath

Why walk with the others
Trashing through 'my veins'(brains?)
Cegate(?) activate, get zombie, escalate, lets go
Ready, set, Zombie fistfight

Get carried away, you're watching me.
A walking dead-alive, now it's time to place your bets.
We're feelling alright. As good as dead.
Just drag somebody, saturday night, we've got a lot of fights to go, lets go.

Ready, set, Zombie fistfight

(he-ey) (wraah)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Combichrist's song "Zombie Fistfight" delve into a post-apocalyptic scenario where people have turned into zombies and engage in fighting each other. The first two lines, "Pre-synch to the body, Flesh worn away," suggests that the human body is no longer in control of itself, and the flesh has been eroded. The singer of the song is in a state of panic, "Hurting up for a heart attack, but there is no time to breath," and wants to fight off the zombies.


The second verse, "Why walk with the others, Trashing through 'my veins'(brains?), Cegate(?) activate, get zombie, escalate, let's go," suggests that the singer is becoming one of the zombies, and his/her heartbeat is being replaced by the sound of other zombies trashing through his/her veins. The song talks about "zombie fistfight," where one zombie fights off the other, conveying a sense of anarchy in a world that is already disintegrating. The repeated chorus, "Ready, set, Zombie fistfight," encourages the listener to embrace the madness of a world overrun by zombies.


Overall, the song is a metaphor for the human condition, where people often embrace conflict and violence instead of working together, leading to a world that is disintegrating. The song suggests that sometimes, it's better to fight off those who are trying to harm us to prevent them from causing further harm.
