about

This track is a remix of the original "Escape from Hunahpu", released thru Peppermill Records as a part of their "2999" project. The original is far more heavy on the bass, and has a much larger audio range. It's also lyric-free and comes with an incredible illustration by Tim Luncsford. This version is more centered on the lyrics, a point where Jaya and Chad differ... the Zombie Apocalypse. To Jaya's discredit, he hasn't actually researched Nzambi... nor the religion that her children practice to this very day. A flood of zombies is as good a way as any to wrap up an album.

lyrics

It's trying to tell us something. Maybe about our past, maybe about who we were, so that we could possible understand who "they" are. Zombie Apocalypse. Zombies do actually exist. You know where we got all that from? They kinda perverted it in Haiti, but this went back to a West African tradition where their god was called Nzambi. This religion is THE oldest living religion on the face of this fucking planet. There's a story about this old lady going to this African town. She's gettin' help from no one. She's leprous, she's got shit all over her face, no one wants to fuckin' let her in. 'Til this young married couple sees her, and they're like, "Hey, come on in, relax... rest them old feet of yours." This woman, just totally overcome with graciousness for this couple, said: "I'm gonna reveal myself to you now. My name is actually Nzambi. Tomorrow, there's gonna come a great flood, and it's gonna wipe out all of these fuckin' idolaters... every last fuckin' one of 'em. But you, you're gonna build a boat... and it's gonna take you to the top of the Mountain of Heaven." The similarities here are striking. We're gonna be punished with a flood of zombies. Like, it's happening, you know. It's coming to the time where something's changing... something's going on. These little pieces of everything are slowly starting to come together, and I think we're reaching an equilibrium. And I'm not gonna tell you how it all boils down in my opinion, 'cuz I think it's kinda... poppycock.
