"Bury Your Head" as written by and Mick Walker....
Bury your head
Bury your head

I was feeling fine
You'll be coming clean tonight
And i'll be falling down with you once again
Call me your valentine
Call me once tonight
And I haven't said its Ok

The things you said I'm rehearsing them
The things you said I'm rehearising them

They went back on us
(closed eyes rolled back couldnt step it up)
I could know when to come onto it
Its the thought that emerges
(set back couldnt step it up)
I could never love the idle vein

Bury your head and the child smashed you down
When this stops you shouldn't call me again
Fall down below
I'll sleep tonight when your Ok
And I haven't said its Ok

The things you said I'm rehearsing them
The things you said I'm rehearising them

They went back on us
(closed eyes rolled back couldnt step it up)
I could know when to come onto it
Its the thought that emerges
(set back couldnt step it up)
I could never love the idle vein

Bury back the words you say now
This is what you call love

They stole my life
stolen it all
they wandered around and round I know
They stole my life
Stolen it all
Stole it all
Bury back the words you say now

They went back on us
(closed eyes rolled back couldnt step it up)
I could know when to come onto it
Its the thought that emerges
(set back couldnt step it up)
I could never love the idle vein

You'll come clean tonight

    General Commentcan somebody post the MEANING to the fucking song instead of the classic Cove/Anthony battle?

    Jesus Christ, like people haven't been arguing about that since Anthony left, someone tell me what this amazing song fucking means and quit bitching.

    General Commentsaosin has songs that are so in depth and I think have more then just one meaning that they are hard to actually come to just one meaning.
    whatever the meaning is this is a great song, and I think cove is doing the band justice.
    give him credit those who keep putting him down, he had to fill some big shoes and he is doing and excellent job.
    not only is he amazing talanted, he is an awesome person.
    I have met him and his one of the nicest people/band memmber I have met.
    I don't think people actually realise how amazing, for a guy, his vocal range really is.
    when he sang seven years although his not anthony and you can't compare the twos vocals he sang it without any troubles and he put his heart and soul in it.
    good on him I say :)

    General CommentEveryone stop comparing Anthony to Cove... it's getting so god damn annoying. It's cool to voice your opinions, but this site is called SONG MEANINGS not COMPARING ARTISTS. And anyways, this ongoing feud will obviously never be won by either side, because after all it's an OPINION not a FACT. so stfu you all.

    Song MeaningI'm basing my meaning off of the ALBUM version of this song, and not these lyrics. I think these lyrics were the demo/EP version.

    It's for sure about a girl cheating on him. "I could never love the ion vein" - an ion is when a molecule has one too many protons/electrons, so he's saying the relationship has a 3rd person in it. Closed eyes rolled back, couldn't step it up - she rolls her eyes when he asks about it, and she can't step up and just tell him the truth. I could know what to come on to when it's the thought that emerges - Meaning, he knows he's probably right, because it was just a thought that emerged out of nowhere. They stole my lies so write it all - He questions the people she's cheating on him with, and they admit the truth. He's kinda saying "they came up with the same lies as me?" in a sarcastic way. So he's giving up and telling her to write it all, because he's done with it. They have been the ones who've seen enough - even the strangers she cheats with have seen enough. (Maybe)

    General CommentDid they really need to change the chorus lyrics? The new 'Your eyes have changed' line just sounds forced.

    General CommentHonestly, I enjoy this version slightly better. It does sound forced, but it adds such a powerful tone to the entire song.

    General CommentThe audio quality is lacking on this track, Cove's "on top of" the music, if that makes sense. Sounds like karaoke. And when did Saosin become harmonyrock? Can they sing anything without singing it together? It adds a nice feel to the song, but it's over-done. When they changed the lyrics, they ruined the song.
