Ephesians 2:1-3

2:1 You were made alive when you were dead in transgressions and sins, 2:2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the children of disobedience; 2:3 among whom we also all once lived in the lust of our flesh, doing the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.

I used to think of this kind of living as sleepwalking, or living unconsciously, but “dead” is even better, especially as nowadays it recalls images of zombies and other automata who probably even smell bad.
