What does mean phrase 'just for the dead' in the sentence
'Spend the rest of your days rocking out
Just for the dead'?

It's a fragment of the lyrics.

    This appears to be Desert Song by My Chemical Romance. "The dead" appears to refer to dead people collectively. The song has lots of lyrics mentioning body parts and morgues and things.

    e7ka, I'm not sure the lyrics are supposed to make a lot of sense. The grammatical pattern at work here is:

    The poor = all poor people as a group
    The dead = all dead people as a group
    etc.

    Thanks. I thought something like that, but in my opinion that hasn't got a sense.
    Anyway, it's just a lyrics, so it doesn't have to have a sense.
