"Bury Me (Updated)" as written by and Chad Kroeger....
I'm sorry, but red's my color now.
Guess you got to me somehow.
"This mistake has broken me,"
she said. She said,

"Just shut your mouth and take the blame,
and paint your face with the shame,
I know because I know."

Take these eyes and bury me.
So that I can't see your face.
And when you die, I can't cry.

I've been there before, flesh is warm,
but I've grown cold.
State your claim into my veins,
and scrape my face in your hands,
And feed me to the wolves

Take these eyes and bury me.
So that I can't see your face.
And when you die, I can't cry

I can't justify your eyes, your eyes.
Justify your eyes, your eyes.
Justify your eyes.

Take these eyes and bury me.
So that I can't see your face
And when you die, I can't cry.

I can't cry
I can't cry
I can't cry
I can't cry
I can't cry

    General CommentI really like Finch but im a little dissapointed that they re-released What it is to Burn. The re-released copy has less screaming and just isn't the same. I still love Nate though, hes fucking sexy. And R2K is my idol.

    General CommentIt's not there fault..its mca..whom they don't even like...but the first version was a demo anyways, and the boys felt like it was never finished and only a limited number of cds were to be released with it..only until the bos had time to re-record...But by your ending comments i can totally tell you're in it just for the music..and nothing else ;(

    General Commentthis song came at a perfect time in my life in which i know exactly how Nate is feeling. it's obvious that this is in the wake of a terriable break-up and it's the woman's fault("this mistake has broken me", she said). the chorus is nate bidding the woman to not literally take his eyes, but take from him the habits his eyes have grown accustomed to of seeing her. he even goes as far as to wish that he could feel nothing from her, so much so, that her death would not affect him. i think the most powerful portion of this song is when nate writes "i can't justify your eyes" which i think means that he can not figure out what compels him to continue to get lost in her gaze. her eyes seem to have a kind of control over him.
    well, that's what i get from it, very powerful song.
