"Bury Me" as written by Ryan Miller, Adam S. Gardner and Brian A. Rosenworcel....
When the day will come along
And you have been there
Find the angels at your feet
Prone on the ground there
So come and bury me
I'll find mine underneath
Don't you see the kingdom?
Hold your crown so high
So come and bury me
Won't find mine underneath
Don't know where the angel's gone
Haven't been there
Find the jackals at your feet
Stain the ground there
Don't you see the kingdom?
Hold your crown so high
Don't come and bury me
Won't find mine underneath
So come and bury me
Won't find mine underneath

    General CommentIt's a cut and paste song to me. First verse...

    When the day will come along
    And you have been there
    Find the angels at your feet
    Prone on the ground there

    When the day comes that you are to die, and you find the angels lying at your feet. The chorus means that everything that he has of value here on earth means nothing to him. He says that he is not afraid of death..."Come and bury me". And he asks you plainly "Don't you see the kingdom?" He says, don't you see that it's not about the things you have here on earth, it's about how the kingdom sees you. And from the first verse...you have the angels at your feet...so "Hold your crown so high"....basically you should be proud and the kingdom awaits you.

    For the second verse:

    Don’t know where the angel’s gone
    Haven’t been there
    Find the jackals at your feet
    Stain the ground there

    This is the other extreme. You don't know where the angel has gone (you don't believe). You've never been there (never believed before). All that you find at your feet are the stains of the jackals (jackals could be symbolic of those laughing at you). This time the chorus completely changes. The person is afraid of death "Don't come and bury me" and they have nothing to show for in the kingdom "Won't find mine underneath"
