Dancing Dead Lyrics

as the final chapter fades away.

    the second interpretation on this list is definately thbe correct one. the timebomb is a drink containing tequila and cranberry juice that is a favorite among the mexican nation. they drop a shot of this into a cerveza and it pressurizes it. apparently a7z enjoyed themselves at the day of the dead celebration and recorded a song about it. however it could have some overtones about how people feel about themselves in sobriety, as opposed to how they feel about themselves in non-sobriety.

    I believe "Dancing Dead" means that some people are like the dead. You may be dressed up in nice and fancy clothes but underneath the clothes your rotting away.
