"Bury Me" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
Bury me in love
Bury me in love

Shared your kisses, take your heart
Buried me and it hurts

I love my sister so
She don't smother me
I played the spades I know
I'm a jack of all trades
Would you bury me?

Once you see her
One inside (hide, hide)
Some things you just can't hide
If you see her
Tell me why (why, why)
Why won't she come outside?

Once you see her
One inside (hide, hide)
Some things you just can't hide
If you see her
Tell me why (why, why)
Why won't she come outside?

She will bury me
She will bury me

    General CommentThat would explain the question i was gonna ask lukefun. I always wondered what kind of drugs S.P. did. I knew it wasn't coke, but now i could see acid, and of course the typical H all rockstars use. Interesting.

    General CommentThey used LSD. I think this song is about loving someone, but not being able to get away from them after you've broken up and moved on. Being attached to someone as though they were your sibling.

    General CommentI agree with pinkbuss floyd that this tune, musically, is the very best on Gish. I heard it was all about acid too. I hate to imagine Billy all dosed out in the old days. I presume that's where a lot of creativity came from. What a simple but classic style of writing that works for him. FAST, slow, FAST, slow. Genious!

    General Commentlukefun i think analyzing you would be harder than this song. But before any kind of remedy can be administered i have to know what you mean by \'its questioning why this thing of joy and beauty isn\'t legal\' ???? stop the drop pal, its not all about acid!

    This song is about scratching the surface and getting inside someone so deep you start to discover things they never intended to arise. Although you love them unconditionally they run and hide leaving you broken and buried in the loss.

    General CommentYeah, it's a very ambiguous song, and it mght not be about LSD. But you have to learn that back then, Billy took LSD on a daily basis and it inspired a lot of his songs, and little would doubt there would be songs about the drug. Or maybe it's just about drugs in general, and "She will bury me" means that the drug will kill him.

    General CommentJames Iha's back up vocals were recorded just after he ate 5 Twinkies, 2 packs of M&M's, and a big glass of Mountain Dew. I remember reading that somewhere about 10 years ago. Anyway that's why he sounds a bit screwy!

    General CommentI just loooove this song, i assumed it was about LSD, but guys, one suggestion, just cos it is about LSD, don't go and do it. btw, the guitar riff is brilliant for a ringtone, trust me, everyone will smile on a bus if your phone starts ringing.....
