LyricsEdit

[Charlie Scene]
Hold on, holy ghost.
Go on, hold me close.
Better run, here we come.
It's the day of the dead.

[Johnny 3 Tears]
We come from a world of oblivion, bad dreams.
I got all I need strapped right to my hamstring.
I'm not really bad, I'm just made up of bad things.
"I'm really not a madman?" the voices keep asking.

Born with a soul that don't wanna be saved.
Every time I look around, I see what a fiend made.
Every time I die, hope they're digging up my grave.
An Undead one like the flag that I wave.

I'm not afraid to cry from this cocaine sickness.
I'm not afraid to die, let the good book witness.
I ask and give none, nope, no forgiveness.
This day of the dead and you're on our hit list.

So come all you misfits!
Bitch, you're on our hit list!

[Danny]
Hold on, holy ghost.
Go on, hold me close.
Better run, here we come.
It's the day of the dead!

Hold on, holy ghost.
So long to the ones you know.
Better run, here we come.
It's the day of the dead!

[Charlie Scene]
This is exactly what has to be done, it happened so gradually.
It's like I magically happened to be this phantom that cannot be.
Lets his dagger cut jaggedly while you're gasping so rapidly.
While you gag on this rag, I see you all laughing so happily.

It's okay to get startled and be afraid of the dark.
I'll just wait here to swallow your soul and tear you apart!
And I've already started, there ain't no saving your heart.
This is the day of the dead, this ain't no day in the park!

Here I come, here I come, grab your guns and crossbows.
And run, better run, from the skull and crossbones.
The fun has begun, yeah, it's hard to swallow.
And when I'm done, I ain't done 'cause it's hell that follows.

Now get ready for sorrow!
'Cause it's hell that follows!

[Danny]
Hold on, holy ghost.
Go on, hold me close.
Better run, here we come.
It's the day of the dead!

Hold on, holy ghost.
So long to the ones you know.
Better run, here we come.
It's the day of the dead!

[Charlie Scene and Danny]
When the ashes start to rise and the moon falls from the sky, and a thousand candles burn into the night.
When the angels softly cry on the plains below the sky, would a thousand souls still pray for you and I?

[Danny and Da Kurlzz]
Hold on, holy ghost!
Go on, hold me close!

[Danny]
Better run, here we come.

[Danny and Da Kurlzz]
It's the day of the dead!

[Danny]
Hold on, holy ghost.
Go on, hold me close.
Better run, here we come.
It's the day of the dead!

Hold on, holy ghost.
Go on, hold me close.
Better run, here we come.
It's the day of the dead!

[Charlie Scene]
Hold on, holy ghost.

[Danny]
It's the day of the dead!

[Charlie Scene]
Hold on, holy ghost.

[Danny]
It's the day of the dead!

[Charlie Scene]
Hold on, holy ghost.

[Da Kurlzz]
It's not worth it!

[Danny]
It's the day of the dead!

[Charlie Scene]
Hold on, holy ghost.

[Da Kurlzz]
It's not worth it!

[Danny]
It's the day of the dead!

TriviaEdit

  • The video of the song on Hollywood Undead's VEVO channel was made public for a few hours on October 17, 2014, then it was made private. It was later made public on October 22, 2014, with its information still slating its release date as October 17, 2014.
    • Whether the leaking of the video on the latter date was intentional or unintentional is still unclear.
  • The instrumental of the song is a variation of many Papa Roach instrumentals.
  • "Day of the Dead" is another name for Halloween.
    • If the single being released close to the time of the holiday was intentional, then this is the second holiday-themed song released by the band.
    • The other is "Christmas in Hollywood", which is Christmas-themed, only with a less serious tone than that of "Day of the Dead."
  • This song can be seen as some sort of "sequel" to "Dead Bite", as that song has the band referring to themselves as the "dead."
  • This song contains one of the rare instances of Da Kurlzz having some type of vocal participation in a song. He frequently screams background vocals throughout the track.
    • Da Kurlzz being a frequent vocalist throughout the fourth album was hinted at several times on his own and Funny Man's Instragrams.
