Grave Robber At Large
Creature Feature Lyrics


There is something strange down by the cemetery
Emptying the graves left and right
Ghastly schemes and ghoulish undertakings
Underneath the pale moonlight

Curse the day they invented the crematory
What a foolish waste of potential sales
It’s a damn shame to discard inventory
Think outside the box if all else fails
Death is my business and business is good

There’s a grave robber at large
Ripping bodies from hallowed ground
Desecrate those who rest in peace
There’s profit to be made from the recent deceased

Skeletal remains are safe in the ossuary
They’re quite stale and not worth a dime
Don’t think me a fiend, this is strictly monetary
Fortune calls and I’ll answer this time

In this occupation timing is instrumental
A matter of hours can plummet the price
The fact it’s a crime is simply incidental
Freshness is key, nothing else will suffice

Death is my business and business is good

There’s a grave robber at large
Ripping bodies from hallowed ground
Desecrate those who rest in peace
There’s profit to be made from the recent deceased

Midnight meetings inside the graveyard
Crunching numbers, breaking the earth
I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty
Even if things seem a bit perverse

Though these deeds weigh heavy on my soul
I will no doubt sleep perfectly sound
While you struggle to keep your conscience
A garden of riches rots in the ground

Death is my business and business is good

There’s a grave robber at large
Ripping bodies from hallowed ground
Desecrate those who rest in peace
There’s profit to be made from the recent deceased

Death is my business and business is good

If you're stealing dead bodies to make soylent green, are you a grave robber or chef?

gothrobber No you’re not, you just have an obsession with the character from Repo! A Genetic Opera

While you're not supposed to be one, you can extract pieces of the corpses you get to either sell or make potions in Graveyard Keeper.

Either way, this song makes for marvelous background music while playing.

Actually, human skeletons are pretty expensive.

This song is specifically about resurrectionists, grave robbers in the early 1800s (and before) who stole fresh corpses to sell to anatomy schools. The reason skeletons are useless to them is because they're specifically for dissection, to teach medical students how to perform surgery.

A healthy male skeleton could sell from 30,000 - 50,000 dollars
