Lyrics

Not About Zombies
This story‘s not about zombies
This story’s not about ghosts
No sulky vampire lover
Fighting werewolves who growl and boast.
This story ain’t got no robots
Bent on taking over the world
This story is only a story
‘Bout a regular boy and girl.
Maybe not too fascinating
Maybe not too wild and new
But the part that makes it work is
It’s a story ‘bout me and you.

Chorus: Don’t make me get my flying monkeys to take you down.
Put down that comic book
Take off that shiny, elf-made crown.

Some people are never happy
With the good that comes there way
Some people will squander lifetimes
Living only in fantasy.
I don’t claim to be your savior.
I can’t give you superpowers.
But if you’re even a little curious
I can help you pass the hours
Happier than an Elf in Alfheim
Jazzier than a robot king
More juiced than a drunken donkey
Who’s loved by a fairy queen.

(Instrumental on Verse and Chorus)

I love me a well told story
With a magical overlay
But you don’t have to be a wizard
To amaze me everyday
You make me happy as a well-fed hobbit
You’re more fun than a flying bed
You’re lovely as a wishing tree
Dropping peaches on my head.
I don’t want you to quit your dreaming
I’d never stop your play.
But spend some time in real life with me
You might decide to stay.

Chorus: Don’t make me get my unicorn army to bring you down.
Put down that anime!
Take off that shiny, elf-made crown.

I don’t want you to quit your dreaming
I’d never stop your play.
But spend some time in real life with me
You might decide to (mostly) stay.
