Unearth Zombie Autopilot Music Video

Music video for Zombie Autopilot from the second full length Unearth album The Oncoming Storm, released in 2004.   Zombie Autopilot is track number 5 on the record and is one of four music videos made in support of the album, which did well for the band, landing in the Billboard Chart at number 105 after selling over 13,000 copies in the first week of release.

The video depicts a day in the life of an intrepid office worker who’s daily rat-race song slowly wears him down to the point where he tells his boss to shove it – ya know we’ve all had days like that!  In the song we really the talents of guitarists Buz McGrath and Ken Susi showing as they rip out well thought out harmonies and an awesome back to back solo.

The Oncoming Storm was the first Unearth album to be released on Metal Blade Records and featured a partial line-up change with Mike Justian replacing Mike Rudberg on drums and John Maggard filling the shoes of Chris Rybicki on bass.   Notably the album was produced by Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz.

Zombie Autopilot Lyrics:

It was last night
On the midnight train back home
I ran into this one
Yet unfamiliar tone
I know I should have known
It was last night
I knew I should have known
Chaos …Our busy minds asleep
We drudge across the land
Is this the coming end
Of our monarchy
Harmless! …We meet increased demands
Is this the life we all
Had in our dreams
Our eternal nightmare
All of us are blind to others

Hide behind our plans to nothing

Cage us …We weep in self defeat
All humanity is lost
In this eternal
All days are lost
To conditioned zones
All days are lost
To what we know

Free us …A piece of mind
Gone are dreamers
Who strive to know
All days are lost

Free us …A piece of mind
Gone are dreamers
Who strive to know
All of us are blind
