Bury Me With It

Album: Good News For People Who Love Bad News (2004)
  • This song deals with a lack of time for enjoyment of life. He does not have time for the fun, so he asks to be buried with the free time and parties that must always come to an end. The song also seems to be a conviction against over-cautiousness: "Don't drink the water, don't you breathe the air." Hard work and cautiousness preached by parents and leaders do not always lead to happiness. >>

  • Sarah from Dublin, Ohi agree with Scott.. all work no play we should just die!
  • Scott from Mercersburg, PaI think It's just the opposite. He is saying that free time to mess around and have some harmless fun is nessesary and if he no longer has the free time, life is no longer worth living.
