Prey
Zombie Girl Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Hey you
What do you want from me?
Hey you
What do you need from me?
Hey you
Is there something you want to say
I don't really care 'cos I am here to stay
I am not what you want me to be
I won't let you take control over me
Give, give, gimme, gimme some blood tonight
Take, take, I will take what I need tonight
You, you, you are the chosen prey
Don't resist, I won't you let you get away
Get away, get away, I won't let you get away
Get away, get away, I won't let you get away
Get away, get away, I won't let you get away
Get away, get away, I won't let you get away
I am not what you want me to be
I won't let you take control over me
I am not what you want me to be
I won't let you take control over me
Hey you, I won't let you get away
Get away, get away, I won't let you get away
Hey you, I won't let you get away
Get away, get away, I won't let you get away
I am not what you want me to be
I won't let you take control over me




I am not what you want me to be
I won't let you take control over me

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Zombie Girl's song "Prey" express the resistance against someone else's attempt to control and manipulate the singer. The song starts with a series of questions, and it seems that the singer is being interrogated by an unknown entity. The questions are met with defiance, as the singer declares that she will not become what the other person wants her to be, and she will not give in to their manipulation or control. The chorus further emphasizes this idea as the singer demands blood and takes what she needs, declaring the other person as her chosen prey.


Overall, the song represents the singer's struggle to remain true to herself and not be influenced or controlled by others. It portrays a sense of empowerment in the face of attempts to manipulate and control, and the lyrics resonate with anyone who has experienced similar situations in their own life.
