Bury Me With It

Album: Good News For People Who Love Bad News (2004)
  • We were shootin' at a mound of dirt.
    Well nothing was broken, nothing was hurt.
    But I probably really should have been at work.
    But if my free time's gone, would you promise me this?

    That you will please bury me with it?
    Please bury me with it!

    Well sure as planets come, I know that they end.
    And if I'm here when that happens, will you promise me this my friend?

    Please bury me with it!
    I just don't need none of that Mad Max bullshit.

    Well the suit got tight and it split at the seams.
    But I kept it out of habit and I kept it really clean.
    But if it's getting' faded, if it's runnin' outta thread,
    Could you just do this for me my friend?

    And please just please bury me with it?
    Please bury me with it!

    Well we moved to the left and moved to the right.
    And sure as hell we stayed out almost every single night.
    But if the party's over, if the fun has to end,
    could you do this for me my friend?

    Would you just please bury me with it?
    Please bury me with it!

    Good news for people who love bad news.
    We've lost the plot and we just can't choose.
    We are hummingbirds who are just not willing to move.
    And there's good news for people who love bad news.
    We are hummingbirds who've lost the plot and we will not move.
    We have good news for anyone who loves bad news.

    We were aiming for the moon. We were shooting at the stars.
    But the kids were just shooting at the busses and the cars.
    So don't drink the water, don't you breathe the air.
    If it's gotten to that point then I have to declare:

    That you please bury me with it!
    Please bury me with it!

    Well fads they come and fads they go.
    And God I love that rock and roll!
    Well the point was fast but it was too blunt to miss.
    Life handed us a paycheck, we said, "We worked harder than this!"

    Please bury me with it!
    Please bury me with it!

    We are hummingbirds who are just not going to move.
    And there's good news for people who love bad news.
    We are hummingbirds who've lost the plot and we well not move.
    We have great news for anyone who loves bad news. Writer/s: DANN GALLUCCI, ERIC JUDY, ISAAC BROCK

  • 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.
