Bury Me Under The Sea



A forgotten land and fourteen hours away
Still, I can't recall the exact day
Here the grass never ever grows
Leaving a smelted land, and a forsaken truth

Under the cover of well bent words
They break in, and steal the lie
There's no longer anymore room
All that remains is the burnt up lock

Bury me under the sea
I'm burning
Carry me over my dreams
I'm screaming
Bury me under the sea
Erase all that I see

The town watches as the women are blinded
So far gone, I've forgotten all that I've been told
Memory wiped
Screams of anger are rising
As their sanity becomes undone

The lights are broken
She threw the stones
Prayers passed, the outcome has already been told
Signs are falling from the sky
Yet the people just close their eyes

Bury me under the sea
I'm burning
Carry me over my dreams
I'm screaming
Bury me under the sea
Fade away now, with my ease

Find me
Sailing across a faded sky
Leaking yellow and forced to cry
Join me
No longer a man of truth
Just another broken soul

A forgotten land and fourteen hours away
Still, I can't recall the exact day
Here the grass never ever grows
Leaving a burning land, and a forsaken truth

Under the cover of well bent words
They break in, and steal the lie
There's no longer anymore room
For nothing but well kept lies

Bury me under the sea
I'm burning
Carry me over my dreams
I'm screaming
Bury me under the sea
And let my mind fall into ease
