"Buried" as written by and Daniel Michael Andriano Derek R Grant....
I'm awake
It was a half bad dream
That was way too long
My whole life it seemed
That someone started digging me up
Turned my headstone into dust

The sun was swallowed by the trees
The night was here for good
You pulled my hand and my head up
You put oxygen into my blood
You walked me through the gates like we were visitors for the day
You laid me down in the back seat
And you drove till I woke up to hear you say

You never lie but it's no fun to tell the truth
I guess I never loved but I will see what I can do
Got so much life to waste that I would take my days and hand them to you

I'm awake
It was a half bad dream
That was way too long
My whole life it seemed
That someone started digging me up
Turned my headstone into dust

I know you never lie but it's no fun to tell the truth
I guess I never loved but I will see what I can do
Got so much life to waste that I would take my days and hand them to you

I know you never lie but its so hard to tell the truth
I guess I never loved but I will see what I can do
Got so much life to waste that I would take my days and hand them to you
To you.

    General CommentThis song is playing at my wedding. Pretty obvious it means being rescued so to speak by that special someone(probably his wife). I tell ya,when Dan is on,no one can touch him.

    General CommentThis song is beautiful. Very different to the usual Trio stuff, but still amazing. Then again, most of Dan's stuff is completely different to Matt's. But usually musically they're similar, whereas this track is completely different. Still amazing though, like everything else Alk3 have done.

    General CommentDefinitely one of the better B-sides by the Alkaline Trio. This reminds me more of a Tuesday song.

    As for the meaning, it definitely comes across as a song about being saved. Most likely by his wife.

    General CommentMaybe this guy is feeling dead emotionally, but seeing this girl makes his life worth living. I really love this song....I used to hate it at first, and I don't even know why. :(
