Already Dead is the lead single from the band's sixth studio album, New Empire Vol. 1.

Background

In this article by Scene for Dummies, Danny talks about the track:

"It's an explosive rock anthem. Humans can find pleasure in trying to hurt you. When you take away that satisfaction and become immune to it, it's empowering."

Official Lyrics

J-Dog: It's the year of the snake
Friends are overrated, so let's make no mistake
I watch from the distance while you poison the lake
A trail of ash that you leave in your wake
Knock me down, but I get back up
In the rain, I feel no pain from the cuts
Too much pain, is it ever enough?
In the rain and I'm spilling my guts

Danny: You wanna hate me
You wanna try and break me
But you can't kill me
Danny and J-Dog: 'Cause I'm already dead
Danny: You can shame me
You can try and break me down
Danny and J-Dog: 'Cause I'm already dead

Danny: Already dead
Already dead

Danny: Here I am again at the edge of a knife
Some of us are born at the end of our lives
Wake up in a sweat in the dead of the night
I must be dreaming
J-Dog: I can see the end of your reign
I can feel the hate filling your veins
Watch me now as I'm breaking the chains
Leaving your whole empire in flames

Danny: You wanna hate me
You wanna try and break me
But you can't kill me
Danny and J-Dog: 'Cause I'm already dead
Danny: You can shame me
You can try and break me down
Danny and J-Dog: 'Cause I'm already dead
'Cause I'm already dead

J-Dog: Watch me now as I'm breaking the chains
Leaving your whole empire in flames
Watch me now as I'm breaking the chains
Leaving your whole empire in flames

Danny: You wanna hate me
Try to break me
But you can't kill me
Danny and J-Dog: 'Cause I'm already dead
Danny: You can shame me
You can try and break me down
Danny and J-Dog: 'Cause I'm already dead
'Cause I'm already dead
J-Dog: Dead
Danny and J-Dog: 'Cause I'm already dead
