"Bury It" as written by Martin Clifford Doherty, Iain Andrew Cook and Lauren Eve Mayberry....
Cover up, cover up, cover up that you're ruthless
Nobody, nobody, nobody's ever gonna notice
And I am catchin' up and I am seein' red
How about I prove I'm right and raise it overhead?

I never promised you anything I couldn't do
We tried to bury it and rise above, bury it and rise above
You, you, you never promised me you were seeing differently
Bury it and rise above, bury it and rise above

You, you
You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above
You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above

Reaching, reaching for, reaching for my resistance
Nobody, nobody, nobody sees it at a distance
And I am catchin' up and I am seein' red
How about I throw my way and raise it overhead?

I never promised you anything I couldn't do
We tried to bury it and rise above, bury it and rise above
You, you, you never promised me you were seeing differently
Bury it and rise above, bury it and rise above

You, you
You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above
You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above
You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above
You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above

I never promised you anything I couldn't do
We tried to bury it and rise above, bury it and rise above
You, you, you never promised me you were seeing differently
Bury it and rise above, bury it and rise above

You, you
You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above
You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above
You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above
You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above

    My Interpretation-The speaker knows the truth about the other person. Even though this other person does exceptionally well in covering it up from other people, the speaker stills sees who that person really is.

    -The speaker has had about enough of the other person's fakeness, so she is threatening to reveal it. ("How about I prove I'm right and raise it overhead?"

    -At one point in time, the speaker and the other person agreed to see something (I don't know what. Perhaps a conclusion on a conflict they once had?) similarly. From that point, they buried the other evidence suggesting something else. However, the other person actually believed differently about the situation. He buried something else, rather than the one they both agreed to bury.

    -The speaker is preparing ("reaching for my resistance") to do something that the other person is not expecting ("I never promised you anything I couldn't do"), The speaker is going to uncover and present the evidence to other people.

    If it helps, think of it this way: the speaker is going to break up with the other person in their relationship. The other person has done something wrong. They tried to fix whatever problems arose from it, and agreed on so and so, and tried to move on. However, the other person never really changed and the speaker notices this. The other person perhaps uses his/her fakeness to build up on something beneficial only for him/herself, but not for the speaker. The speaker has had enough, and is going to break silence and end the relationship.
