Volbeat - Dead But Rising Lyrics




Dear wind of Mississippi, can you call him by name?
I have followed his wings on a sunny day

I like to believe he's the chosen one
I like to believe he's the fallen one
Dead but rising

I raise the fist, raise the fist with power and fate
And wishing that his claws will grab onto my hand

I like to believe he's the chosen one
I like to believe he's the fallen one
Dead but rising

I have been to the end of waters
I have been to the end of earth
I've been over mountains and riding the storms

Dear son, your words have reached me
And for that I can carry on
I'll guide you in spirit. Today I'll be home

I like to believe he's the fallen one
I like to believe he's the chosen one
The rebirth of man heals a bleeding heart
The eagle of kings wears my father's soul

Dead but rising

Volbeat Dead But Rising Comments
  1. Michael Keihn

    volbeat has some great songs but this by far is my favorite

  2. SkellieDaSkeezer 904

    I just picture Cher riding a giant falcon with a skeleton Viking band singing her heart out in hell.

  3. Drive ssjm

    This song is about me and I would like to say I'm not the chosen 1 or the fallen 1, the source doesn't share his glory and fallen ones don't care about anything but evil doings, I'm neither.. I won't go to heaven not hell, I don't care about those places, except my own places that I created

  4. ruke T907

    Absolutely amazing

  5. Mission Bound

    John Wicks theme song

  6. Jeremy Robinson

    Unless you fuck with something that belongs to me or that I care about . Then I won’t bite I will do much worse than that 😂😂😂

  7. Russell Kerr

    The singer is just insanely bad ass clearly spoken the band is on it's way to being a king of metal

  8. Sebastian Winston

    Intro straight up sounds like slayer

  9. SickMarmaladeGrandpa

    The drummer carries this tume to perfection

  10. deldan1909

    🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘

  11. SomeCallMeMrGrandview

    Why these guys aren't headlining shows across North America is beyond me. Saw them twice w bands much less superior. If the venues I saw Volbeat in would've had windows...they would've easily been blown out. In other words, they ROCK LIVE!!!!!!!

  12. 777pusher

    Best since Metallica!!

  13. adamgh0

    0:18 I love the subtle nod to Slayer.

  14. redNgold53

    🤟☠🤟

  15. Vlad-Ovidiu Adam

    Elvis + Metallica riffs...world peace achieved!

  16. Andy Stojek

    that voice melts me every time

  17. 777pusher

    The group won’t admit there are religious lyrics here. We who believe know otherwise!

  18. 777pusher

    Metallica could try to cover this!!

  19. 777pusher

    He’s the ONLY ONE

  20. 777pusher

    God bless all of you who get it!!

  21. Brian Ellis

    Killer riff!

  22. clrblndmax

    I always thought the lyrics was the "the reaper man, he has a bleeding heart". Not the rebirth of man heals a broken heart.

  23. Mike Hannibal

    Big alter bridge fan and saw volbeat mentioned starter listening today and this guys vocals are pretty unique. Riffs in this song are exactly what im after my fav so far for sure

  24. Stefan Sandler

    love it from Austria 🤘

  25. denise robertson

    ❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️💖👍

  26. Tristan Snow

    My god this song is chilling good! Hell this whole album is nothing but absolute sex!

  27. Jeremy Robinson

    Wait till I get out , imagine moving 245 pieces of iron from one location to another then going to another location tear down 245 other pieces of iron and take them to another location all in one day . The smallest pieces weighed 50 lbs . The largest weighed 150 and there was 30 of them 😂😂😂

  28. Konstantin Fuchs

    good song, to make sport

  29. metal head

    This was the very first song I heard by Volbeat. I freaked. It was wicked. I heard it on the Wrif in Detroit . Luckily I travelled to Windsor that day, or I never would have heard of them. Favorite band since. So kick ass!

  30. Stefano Gonzato

    And that's how you make a great video description! Kudos to the uploader

    Sean Crockenberg

  31. Luwab

    My Forsaken's Soundtrack

  32. Cyril #312

    The professionals of metal guitar riff!

  33. Cyril #312

    Must be listenned by gays. They will find their testosterone back 👍🏻

  34. Gianni Montero

    The coke in my veins and this song make me want to kill

  35. Southern Ancap

    0.75 speed is blues metal lol

  36. nedj10

    Is it just me but does it sound like Michael is saying Dead Pool Rising? :D

  37. david10006

    let this band be a lesson to every tone deaf screamer singing in one of the few metal/hard rock bands around these days....strong vocal melody and harmony + lots of loud crunch guitars = WIN!!

  38. SKoRM

    When you remember Poulsen used to be in a death metal band before Volbeat the intro suddenly makes sense.

  39. Allison Wright

    Room 24 with King Diamond is especially recommended......

  40. Epiphica

    being from denmark i'm kinda proud of these guys, how a band from our tiny country gets so much respect from people all over the world makes me happy. they truely made their way out of our tiny community, all my respect goes to them.

    as far as I know heaven is scorpio biased with melting chickens living on pleasure ... so am I :p
    what can I tell you, it's a warm feeling
    back in the days this world have seem to run on a red / blue relationship ... I was quite satisfied with the priviledges I had so I'm not sure who's longing for power here and it most often feels like patching and repairing stuff ...

  43. Robert O'Day

    play this at my funeral and watch everyone shit

  44. Cecilie Blad

    Thank you very much!! Thank you so much! Thank you for the music. It is an amazing band. Tusen takk Volvbeat! =)

  47. Bob Mckenzie

  48. Curt Perry

    Fantastic song! love how the old school kicks in with the new age. I hope they stay true to the path

  49. the nemesis

    I made a music video out of this song

  50. Chainsaw Wielding Maniac

    Jeppe Petersen

    metalhead2508 nah. The vocals make the music 10 times better

    Mr. Morningstar

    His "vocals" are ridiculous. He sounds like he has a cock stuck in his mouth.

    AH HERDY HERDY HERDY HERDY UHYEAH! DEAHBUHRIZANNN!

    Jeppe Petersen

    The vocals are the best thing in this band

    Mr. Morningstar

  90. C Williams

    This song is about Jesus!

  92. Dan White

    This song makes me want to beat my hair I counted until it's a bloody mess

  93. jmafaithful3139

    The song is about Michaels first time driving alone in the U.S. He was in Mississippi and his GPS stopped working and his father had recently passed away. And soon after his GPS went out an eagle appeared and Michael followed it until it disappeared. He looked up and he was at his destination. He believes the eagle was his father guiding him there because his father loved birds especially eagles

  94. W i s h m a s t e r

    RIP to my grandfather who died at 86, this song is so him. He was a great man, served in the Navy during the Korean War. He'll guide us in spirit and today he'll be home in heaven.

  95. billiam braskey

    Killer fuckin song man, but i gotta say, i wish that opening riff was throughout the whole song. That shit was baddass

    Danny Dunn

    billiam braskey just get every Lamb of God album then😉
