Buried Alive

Album: House of Secrets (2004)
  • [intro]

    I speak in verses
    Prophecies & curses
    ....I hate my life.

    [verse]

    No miracle is coming ....[hate you]
    It's just a hole
    Nothing's wrong with you
    Must maintain control

    Everyone's asking questions
    No place is safe
    I'll forfeit resurrection
    To escape the pain

    ... I hate my life.

    [chorus]

    I HATE MY LIFE.

    [verse]

    I speak in verses
    Prophecies & curses

    This storm of thorns is growing ....[hate me]
    There's no end in sight
    Chaos claws my jaw
    & incites a mental riot

    I'm in the mouth of madness
    With a tongue of poetry
    I ate the spine of Atlas
    Now the world is crushing me

    .... I hate my life.

    [chorus]

    I HATE MY LIFE.

    [outro]
