"Buried By the Buzz" as written by Kevin Patrick Devine, Mike Skinner and Chris Bracco....


I got a sweet tooth
Sunk in a soft spot
That busts my jaw loose
And makes my mouth rot
And I caught a bad break
The same one you caught
That turned your hair white
And choked your breath off

So I'm buried by the buzz of a year gone numb
I'm buried by the buzz of a year gone numb
I found gossip in the ivy and it's been swallowing my house
And I found bones in the foundation that I'm just picking out now
So I'm buried by the buzz of a year gone numb

I've got a fistful of shattered seashells
That scream like soldiers stuck down an oil well
I saw a bad sign lit up like Broadway
And I watched my head spin
And I heard my voice shake

I'm buried by the buzz of a year gone numb
I'm buried by the buzz of a year gone numb
I found trouble in the ghost town
That I've been building with my hands
But I found comfort in the snowstorm
That I've been piling on my past
So I'm buried by the buzz of a year gone numb

So I'm buried by the buzz of a year gone numb
I'm buried by the buzz of a year gone numb
I see symptoms of a sickness
In every stranger on the street
And I see danger in the distance
Speeding straight for you and me
So I'm buried by the buzz
I'm buried by the buzz
I'm buried by the buzz

    General CommentHE sings this song so well, its amazing.
    I think this song is about putting your past away and i think he is finally coming to terms with it and its overwhelming.

    General Commentokay well heres my interrupation of this AMMMMMAZINGGGGGGGGG song


    he has been broken up with his girlfriend for a year. but he had no idea why she broke up with him in the first place. hes just now finding out why after one year being emotionally numb by the breakup.


    'And I caught a bad break
    The same one you caught
    That turned your hair white
    And choked your breath off'
    i think this is saying i found the flaw that made you go away


    'And I found bones in the foundation that I'm just picking out now'
    hes just now seeing all the clues


    'But I found comfort in the snowstorm
    That I've been piling on my past'
    hes been relying on the relationship to comfort him


    'And I see danger in the distance
    Speeding straight for you and me'
    this part confuses me tho.
    is he talking about the ex-girlfreind? or a new girlfriend who he is probably going to breakup with due to the finding of all his flaws

    General CommentTo me, this song is about him starting to regret the life he's living even though he's done it to himself (I found trouble in the ghost town that I've been building with my hands) and so he's doing cocaine to sort of forget about his problems (But I found comfort in the snowstorm that I've been piling on my past), and therefore he's buried by the buzz of a year gone numb, once again, due to cocaine.

    Maybe it's about a relationship though, I could be wrong, though a lot of his songs are metaphors for using drugs, specifically coke.

    General Commentdefinatley about coke.

    there's such obvious references:

    "fist full of shattered seashells"

    "bones in the foundation"
