"Like Treasure" as written by Thomas Michael Smith, Christopher Dominic Urbanowicz, Russell Leetch and Edward Owen Lay....
Ain’t it just like the old days,
Wait and see how the hand plays,
Living out our second-hand clichés,
Ain’t it just like the old days.

You are what you eat,
You'll become digested,
Well love, it isn't felt.
No love is tested.

You will keep forever,
I’ll bury you like treasure.

We gotta get friends in high places,
Hide behind their plastic faces,
Rip up the flag and replace it,
Dance with our friends in high places.

You are what you eat,
You'll become digested,
Well love, it isn't felt,
Love is tested.

You will keep forever,
I’ll bury you like treasure.
You will keep forever,
I’ll bury you like treasure.

I used to want to be you
Now where’s your Shadow?
You’re see through.
I used to want to be you
Now where’s your Shadow?
You’re see through.

You will keep forever,
I’ll bury you like treasure.
You will keep forever,
I’ll bury you like treasure

    General CommentTo me this song might be talking about someone who's no longer their friend or lover. "You will keep forever, I'll bury you like treasure" - could mean that they're burying their feelings, the person is dead to them, locked in time?

    I think it is:

    "wait to see how the hand plays."

    General CommentThis is the best song on the album. I believe it's about a lost love that he met again, but feel or sees nothing in her. He buried that part of her deep inside him, intentionally to keep like a "treasure". But he buried her so deep, he can't feel anything for her. He used to be her "shadow".
