"Burial" as written by George Pettit, Jordan Hastings, Chris Steele, Dallas Green and Wade Macneil....
When will this winter end?
The snow's been falling for months
The town all dressed in white
And my skin is burning from the wind

A cold sun in disguise
An assault from the morning light
My burial, I can't succeed
Frozen and paralyzed

Oh winter
Oh winter
Oh winter
Oh winter
Oh winter
Oh winter
Oh winter
Oh winter

Oh winter
Oh winter
Oh winter
Oh winter
Oh winter
Oh winter
Oh winter
Oh winter

    General Commentwhy are there no comments? This song is pretty amazing.. I think I have a new favorite. This song from what I get is about death in the snow and winter and how it's beautiful yet sad.

    My OpinionI think this song is about death in the winter this song has an epic type of feel e.g someone being in a movie like the main actor but in the snow but it has a feeling to it that makes u think sure its a bad thing that happened but the winter and snow and the feeling of that is good so teck 92 i think has the right idea

    General CommentI think that this song is about being in a rut or a depression, being compared to the winter that has connotations to be cold and endless. The sun, to me, almost seems like a tease, like it makes you feel that there is happiness outside of the dark place but he can't quite succeed in reaching it. He feels stuck in the sad situation but also feels that it might be his demise.

    And that is my very corny take on this incredibly amazing song :) Dallas Green is such a brilliant vocalist.

    General CommentPut this song next to Crisis, both songs being about winter, and you have an example of just how awesome a band Alexisonfire is.

    I need not say it again, But i'll say it anyway. Dallas has some of the most beautiful vocals you can find.

    I have a feeling this song is just about winter, how it brings you down, and essentially buries you, wIthout much deeper meaning. Anyone living in Canada can sympathize with these lyrics, waking up on a cold lonely winter morning.
    Great song to finish off an album with.
