There's no use in crying
All my tears won't drown my pain
Free me from your sorrow
I can't grieve you again

I watched you let yourself die
And now it's too late to save you
This time

You bury me alive
And everybody's gotta breathe somehow
Don't leave me to die
You're too consumed by your own emptiness and lies

All I did was love you
Now I hate the nightmare you've become
I can't let you fool me
I won't need you again

I watched you let yourself die
And now it's too late to save you
This time

You bury me alive
And everybody's gotta breathe somehow
Don't leave me to die
You're too consumed by your own emptiness and lies

You bury me alive
And everybody's gotta breathe somehow
Don't leave me to die
You're too consumed by your own emptiness and lies

I can't feel this love we used to hold
All I see is black and cold
As I try to pull you to the ground
To the ground

Everybody's gotta breathe somehow
Don't leave me to die
You're too consumed by all your emptiness

You bury me alive
And everybody's gotta breathe somehow
Don't leave me to die
You're too consumed by your own emptiness and lies

You bury me alive
And everybody's gotta breathe somehow
Don't leave me to die
You're too consumed by your own emptiness and lies

    General CommentI find it amusing that when Ben&Co rose to fame, it was with the song Bring Me to Life. Now, trying to renew the sound they began with, they use the song Bury Me Alive. Sort of makes a statement.

    General CommentI think the lyrics are based on some relationship, where the woman fake suicide, due to probably a bad relationship. But even her husband knew it somehow, his response to it like: Good for you (There's no use in crying All my tears won't drown my pain Free me from your sorrow I can't grieve you again I watched you let yourself die And now it's too late to save you This time). And the woman's plot seems to backfire when she realises that she will end up stuck in a grave buried alive.

    Lyric Correction8th stanza is supposed to be,

    Do you feel this love we used to hold?
    All I see is black and cold
    As I try to pull you down
    To the ground, the ground

    also, in every single chorus, she only says "Dont't leave me die", not "to die"
    and she only says "too consumed by your own emptiness and lies" leave out the "You're" except for in the 9th stanza.

    General CommentThe video gives clues of the writer's thoughts. The girl in white being buried is the same person playing a dominant role in burying herself alive. This is the "good girl" being buried by her alter ego who has let her ignorance and the lies she has believed bury her good self. The two "sides" once loved each other but the darker side became dominant. The girl in white fought back, not wanting the dark side to win and be loosed. During the fight they both fell into the grave meant for the good girl. The last few seconds show the girl in black unconscious or dead and the girl in white waking up. It's a beautiful but sad story.
