In this video we analyse the lyrics to the song 'Lullaby for a Dead Man' which was composed by Kevin Sherwood and vocals peformed by Elena Siegman.
This is the first of 8 episodes each analysing the lyrics to the Easter Egg songs in all of the Call of Duty: Nazi Zombies maps in the order: Lullaby For a Dead Man, The One, Beauty of Annihilation, 115, Abracadvre, Not Ready to Die, Pareidolia and finally Coming Home.
Seeing as Treyarch only really developed the Nazi Zombies Story starting with Shi No Numa, this song has near to no relevance to the actual story of it and that only picks up in Beauty of Annihilation in which the lyrics introduce all 4 characters and their motives. However it would be stupid starting half way through so I decided to do Lullaby for a Dead Man and The One to make it a complete series.
Lullaby For a Dead Man: Rating of Song: 7/10 Relevance to Story: 1/10 Creativity of Lyrics 4/10
Leave your thoughts and opinions on the video, the song and the game in the comments below, if you think any of the lyrics mean anything different then please mention it to me and I'll annotate the video.
Also I edited the video with snip-it's from the song so that there are pauses for you to read the on screen text and so you don't have to listen to lyrics I've already done.
Oh and guys what d'you think of the intro? I'm really happy with it as it took me a while to do with Windows Movie Maker xD
DISCLAIMER: All interpretations of the lyrics in this video are purely in my opinion and may not be correct, they are open to your interpretation in the comments below ^^
Life is still spinning Your end, my beginning And everything I hope for has been strangely set aside Breathing for living My mind is forgiving And destiny is proving to be absent from my life
I know it, I feel it I know when you're sleeping I know the things you're dreaming And I know you will never give up and die
Conscious fulfilling, the darkness revealing All faults and insecurities are shining like the sun Eyes are decieving Your mind will stop breathing and All that you are made of will now rightly become mine
You know it, you feel it I know when you're sleeping I know the things you're dreaming I love it when you're weeping Even death can't stop this feeling And I know you won't give up and die
Father, why have you forsaken me? My life is gone Father, know how long it's taken me? I live again
I know when you're sleeping I know the things you're dreaming I know when you're sleeping I know the things you're dreaming I love when you're weeping Even death can't stop this feeling
I know when you're sleeping I know the things you're dreaming I love when you're weeping Even death can't stop this feeling And I know you will never give up No, you will never give up... You will never give up... and die
