"Dirt On The Grave" as written by and Zakk Wylde....
Ashes fly ashes burn
The sun is black ain't no return
Ashes fly ashes burn
Over and over ain't no need to learn

It's all dust on dust
It's all you and me
Out done completely out played
Just shovel some more dirt on the grave

The choices you make and the choices that are
When hell is so close and heavens so far
Ashes fly and ashes burn
Over and over ain't no need to learn

    General CommentIt is, perhaps, about how the world is digressing so much in values or perhaps about war? I have not listened to it enough to give an accurate definition yet...

    General CommentThis one is about... You bury your friend. Just as you're finished covering the grave you have to shovel some more dirt on the grave. You get the point? Life's been hard on you but it's not going to be any better. As soon as you finish one grave, there is another to dig.

    General CommentI believe this song is about losing someone close to you. and also it might have something to do with the world going to hell.
    which it really isnt.

    Great Song
