"Buried Alive" as written by Myles Kennedy and Mark / Tremonti....
I twist and turn in the darkest space
Can't find my worth as I numb the pain
Glass to the sky with a black tooth grin
This whiskey smile that takes me down again

I'm cold and I'm so afraid
That I'm too weak and I can't change

I've been buried alive
And I don't want to be here anymore
Reached out a thousand times
For a hand to pull me from below

I've been buried alive
In a world of constant sorrow
Reached down tonight and set me free
Save tomorrow

Another shot slip into the haze
Another night soaked in my disgrace
So sooth the lie, I raise my glass and run
A wasted life, what have I become?

I've been buried alive
And I don't want to be here anymore
Reached out a thousand times
For a hand to pull me from below

I've been buried alive
In a world of constant sorrow
Reached out tonight and set me free
Save tomorrow

Save tomorrow
Save tomorrow

Let me breathe again
And show me where I begin
To find a will to change
Before I lose everything

Before I lose everything

I've been buried alive
And I don't want to be here anymore
Reached out a thousand times
For a hand to pull me from below

I've been buried alive
In a world of constant sorrow
Reached down tonight and set me free
And I will follow

I've been buried alive
I've been buried alive
I've been buried alive
I've been buried alive

    General Commentthe song is about being addicted to alcohol.

    in the first verse he's talking about how he drinks alcohol to forget his problems but then realizes that the alcohol is ruining his life and making him more miserable.

    in the second verse he's saying thats he's ashamed because even though he wants to quit he finds himself still drinking

    in the third verse he's begging someone to help him change.

    and of course in the chorus he's saying that he's afraid he's just too weak to change and that no one is there to help

    General Commenti posted these lyrics, cause they're all i could find as of the day the album was released. i have noticed several errors, so if someone wants to fix them, please do. i haven't bought the album, so i can't find the correct version anywhere.

    otherwise, its a kick-ass song, and and even better album.

    General CommentI twist and turn
    In the darkest space
    Can't find my worth
    As I numb the pain

    Glass to the sky
    With a blacktooth grin
    This whiskey smile
    Takes me down again

    I'm cold and I'm so afraid
    That I'm too weak and I can't change

    I've been buried alive and
    I don't want to be here anymore
    Reached out a thousand times for
    A hand to pull me from below

    I've been buried alive in a world
    Of constant sorrow
    Reach down tonight and set me free...
    Save tomorrow

    Another shot
    Slip into the haze
    Another night
    Soaked in my disgrace

    Toast to the lie
    I'll raise my glass and run
    A wasted life
    What have I become?

    I've been buried alive and
    I don't want to be here anymore
    Reached out a thousand times for
    A hand to pull me from below

    I've been buried alive in a world
    Of constant sorrow
    Reach down tonight and set me free...
    Save tomorrow

    Save tomorrow
    Save tomorrow

    Let me breathe again
    Show me where I begin
    To find the will to change
    Before I lose everything

    I've been buried alive and
    I don't want to be here anymore
    Reached out a thousand times for
    A hand to pull me from below

    I've been buried alive in a world
    Of constant sorrow
    Reach down tonight and set me free
    And I will follow

    General Commentthis song seems to me to explain what it's like to be in a nearly inescapable situation. He's trapped in a place that is literally killing him. Some1 Save HIM!!!

    General CommentI believe strongly that this song has something to do with Dimebag Darrell. That is because of simply..

    Glass to the sky
    With a blacktooth grin
    This whiskey smile
    Takes me down again

    Blacktooth Grin is something that Dimebag was known to drink. It consists of Crown Royal and a splash of Coke.

    I'm not saying its about Dimebag exclusively, but I believe it does have something to do with him.
