Bury Me Alive

Album: Tear the World Down (2009)
  • There's no use in crying
    All my tears won't drown my pain
    Free me from your sorrow
    I can't grieve you again
    I watched you let yourself die
    And now it's too late to save you this time

    You bury me alive
    And everybody's gotta breathe
    Somehow don't leave me, die
    Too consumed by your own emptiness and lies

    All I did was love you
    Now I hate the nightmare you've become
    I can't let you fool me
    I won't need you again
    I watched you let yourself die
    And now it's too late to save you this time

    You bury me alive
    And everybody's gotta breathe
    Somehow don't leave me, die
    Too consumed by your own emptiness and lies
    And everybody's gotta breathe
    Somehow don't leave me, die
    Too consumed by your own emptiness and lies

    Make me feel this love we used to hold
    All I see is black and cold
    As I try to pull you down
    To the ground, the ground

    And everybody's gotta breathe
    Somehow don't leave me, die
    Too consumed by your own emptiness and lies
    (you bury me alive)
    And everybody's gotta breathe
    Somehow don't leave me, die
    Too consumed by your own emptiness and lies Writer/s: Carly Hennessy, John Le Compt, Marty O'brien, William Gray
