"Dead Again" is a song by Type O Negative, included on the seventh album Dead Again, released in 2007. It is the first and shortest track of the album, even though this song isn't quite short, lasting four and a quarter minutes. It starts with

Carnivore

-esque music then gets to verses and choruses that sound like

Misfits

. The title track is about drug abuse and the sense Peter Steele having killed part of himself after suffering a relapse.

Lyrics

The first to admit - I'm a doomed drug addict
And I always will be - hey man, don't follow me
No excuse for drug abuse
Said these lines a thousand times
Don't want to live atrial fib - from neurosis, sclerosis

Please make me smile - if you learn from my trial
Baby I'll pay this price - maybe saving your life for ya
I can't state this point enough
The pickup's easy, but the put down's rough
Up the nose or tap a vein - no one else but you to blame

I can't believe I died last night - oh God I'm dead again
I can't believe I died last night - I'm fucking dead again

Chemical joy turning thee paranoid
Recently buried deep Greenwood Cemetery, now
I had no pulse last time I checked
I'd trade my life for self respect
So I say with my ass whipped
There are some things worse than death

I can't believe I died last night - oh God I'm dead again
I can't believe I died last night - I'm fucking dead again

I can't believe I died last night - oh God I'm dead again
I can't believe I died last night - I'm fucking dead again

I can't believe I died last night - oh God I'm dead again
I can't believe I died last night - I'm fucking dead again

I can't believe I died last night - oh God I'm dead again
I can't believe I died last night
