When I die
Bury me with the white flowers
Underneath the root lines
In the field
With the smell
With the smell of a bonfire
Burnin' wood atop
This cold dark earth

In the sun
In the sun
We will rise
In the sun
In the sun
We will shine
We will shine

When I die
Bury me with my arms out
Stretchin' wide across
The empty dirt
With the weight
With the weight of a feather
Bury me with the weather
Of southern peaceful lust

In the sun
In the sun
We will rise
In the sun
In the sun
We will shine
We will shine

When I die
Bury me somewhere near
Just so I can hear
Your prayers dear
With the heart
With the heart of a lover
Weepin' simple disclosures
Of unfair farewells

In the sun
In the sun
We will rise
In the sun
In the sun
We will shine
We will shine

In the sun
In the sun
We will rise

In the sun
In the sun
We will shine
We will shine

When I die
Bury me with the white flowers
Underneath the root lines
In the field
With the heart
With the heart of a lover
Weepin' simple disclosures
Of unfair farewells

In the sun
In the sun
We will rise

In the sun
In the sun
We will shine
We will shine
