Does Everybody in the World Have to Die is a song from Hollywood Undead's fourth album, Day of the Dead.

Background

Charlie Scene spoke with Artist Direct about the track. "I was like 'what the fuck?' when I first heard it. It was a mindfuck. Johnny 3 Tears mind-fucked me, donkey style."

Johnny 3 Tears also spoke with Artist Direct about the track. "I was actually talking to my mom. One of those school shootings had just occurred. It's a commentary on society. Back when she was a kid, this didn't happen. People didn't fucking shoot up schools. There was no social media. It was a different society. I wanted to write a song about what I felt about it. It's sad. Anybody who thinks about this stuff is touched universally by it because children are children. Even if they aren't yours and you don't have them, all adults feel protective of children. They need to be taken care of, and they're the future of our world. The idea that someone is running around exterminating them touches a deep chord in every human being. Obviously, I feel a lot of sorrow and sadness, and it also makes me very fucking angry towards these people who are carrying out these acts. It's an injustice. You never get to say, 'What the fuck?' to those people. It's my message to them. We felt it had a lot of anger and energy and could communicate the feelings without words as much. It's definitely going to be one of those songs we'll enjoy playing live. A lot of people will relate to what it's about. The situation touches everyone. I wanted to do my little stupid part, and I felt it was my duty."

Lyrics

Johnny 3 Tears: Change, some broken fate
Dim fucking dreams of a Hollywood cage
Perfect, picture-perfect babe
Kingdom may come but look what we made
To slaughter and fuck what comes after
The meaningless madness, maniacal laughter
Danny: (Pray...)
Johnny 3 Tears: And what else can you take?
Your hands put together, so holy your hate
Danny: (Pray...)
Johnny 3 Tears: Another fucking madman
Another motherfucker with a motherfucking handgun
Come all you weak, come all you wicked
I got some heart, come and get it, bitches
(Shh!)

Does everybody in the world have to fucking die?
Does everybody in the world have to fucking die?
Everybody in the world has to fucking die
Everybody in the world has to fucking die
Danny: (Die!)

J-Dog: I am a thief and my father is a bastard
Who am I? I am you
My ego, it eats and it needs an answer
Do or die, let the hate burn through
Take a deep breath as you look in my soul
I'll devour your dreams and I lived in your home
It comes from under the bed, that foul smelling hot breath
And into your head, a close relative of Death
(Now!)
We're coming inside
Kill the fucking hunter and you're killing the pride
In the tide, I'll survive
Or will the fucking world leave me buried alive?

Johnny 3 Tears: Does everybody in the world have to fucking die?
Does everybody in the world have to fucking die?
Everybody in the world has to fucking die
(Ah!)
Everybody in the world has to fucking die
Danny: (Die!)

(Die!)

Johnny 3 Tears: You will not be anything
An after-thought, a memory
You'll cut bullets when you leave
You have nightmares, I have dreams
We need Mother Mary White
Hold in breath and wait to die

Just another shallow man
Zipped up in a body bag
Just another shallow man
Zipped up in a body bag
Just another shallow man
Zipped up in a body bag
Just another shallow man
Zipped up in a body bag
Just another shallow man
Zipped up in a body bag
