  • Last week, I announced my plans to write a series of songs about The Walking Dead: The Game, which recently won Game of the Year at Spike TV’s Video Game Awards. I wrote this song after finishing episode 1 of the series, “A New Day”. In this bluesy, raw tune, I sing from the perspective of Lee Everett. Think of it as a lullaby for Clementine. I hope you enjoy, friends. Can you spot all the references to the game in the lyrics? — Kavalier Calm

         A New Day

    I was dead man walking until the walking dead
    gave me a new reason to live.
    I’m a bad man. I didn’t earn this new day.
    But I’ll take it just the same.

    A man’s past can’t haunt him
    in a present full of fears.
    Yes, I will protect you, my dear.

    Who knew babysitting was such a dangerous game?
    I’ll hammer, punch, and kick ‘til you’re safe.
    Momma says call the cops, but I know first hand:
    help’s hard to find in this lawless land.

    Some of the living want it all to end.
    One bullet to check out of the Motor Inn.
    I can’t save everyone. Life forces me to choose.
    But, darlin’, I will always choose you.

    I was dead man walking until the walking dead
    gave me a new reason to live.
