Bury Your Dead

Bury Your Dead tracks

Lyrics

1. SYMPATHIE ORCHESTRA

This is a letter I started and
I'll ever get the chance to finish it.
I left the spaces here for you to fill in.
Cross them out, cross me out of the picture.
We've been living a weeks worth of truth in a years worth of lies.
Now I feel so damaged.
So broken
So hollow
Now Reach out for me,
Touch these cracking ribs.

Sometimes I think you forgot my name
Sometimes I feel you forget my face

The way you lick your lips
Your body temperature climbs
You look at me
Like you were looking at
Last night
The way you lick your lips
Your body temperature climbs

Sometimes I think you forgot my name
Sometimes I feel you forget my face




2. HANDS TO HIDE THE SHAME

And all the effort I put into you spit in my face.
We were Stitched from the same cloth and torn apart by the damages done
You belong to me and I belong to something so much greater than this

We were brought here to make this work
I cant find the words,
I cant find the hands to cover my face.
The shame is too great

Let me be the first to say this overwhelming guilt is more than anyone should ever have to bear
I'm taken back and made to see things for what they really are

I am. The abyss
I am the bottomless end
I will overtake you,

I am the end

We were brought here to make this work
I cant find the words,
I cant find the hands to cover my face.
The shame is too great




3. FEVER DREAM

Everyday
It starts again, waking up to feet on shaky ground
This is just another poor excuse for trying
The more I give the more you take away
Now every ounce I have, I draw
Just to push me through another day

Heels dragging
Heart lacking

But it's so damn hard when the weight of the world is on your shoulders

Now who am I to express and complain, that this is killing me?
It never matters
I said it once and ill say it all again
Keep screaming, keep waving
You're digging holes and I'm buried inside

No one can hear you, but if we give up now, then at least we can say we tried

Everyday
It starts again, waking up to feet on shaky ground
This is just another poor excuse for trying
The more I give the more you take away

Now who am I to express and complain, that this is killing me?
It never matters
I said it once and ill say it all again
Keep screaming, keep waving
You're digging holes and I'm buried inside

No one can hear you, but if we give up now at least we can say we tried

Heels dragging
Heart lacking-




4. WOMB DISEASE

Darkness, I'm blind and moving through you.
I tucked away little notes, instructions
On how to never be found again.
Darkness, I'm blind

I want to taste a new freedom
Carve away at the burden
And set my sights to the empty sky

We didn't deserve your disease

You gave each of us a story to speak of
Puzzle pieces that tell of your negligence.
Yet You call this love?

I want to taste a new freedom
I want to Carve away the burden
And set my sights to the empty sky

Better to pacify
Than to eliminate the true beast We loved
Unconditionally
With no brighter days in sight
This is what makes our family strong

Freedom, I set my sights to an empty sky




5. INFIDEL'S HYMN

Honestly,honesty feels like such hard concept to understand.
I'll admit that I'm lost out here and a bit confused.
Like a homesick abortion, I just wanted a chance.

Yet I wait on hand and foot for you to kick me in the mouth.
For three long years I kept crawling back
For three long years you mistook my kindness for weakness
This is the last

Homesick for the past, I am homesick for the days gone by
This is the last

So many chances, so many lies
Keep talking yourself out of the truth
So many chances, so many lies
Keep talking yourself out of the truth

(fool)

I Love the taste of my own blood
We are all vampires now. This is how we were bred.
Pitiful, what we have become.
We are a waste of time
We are a waste of space

Yet I wait on hand and foot for you to kick me in the mouth.
For three long years I kept crawling back
For three long years you mistook my kindness for weakness
This is the last

Homesick for the past, I am homesick for the days gone by
This is the last.

So many chances, so many lies
Keep talking yourself out of the truth
So many chances, so many lies
Keep talking yourself out of the truth




6. YEAR ONE

And on the day my father died
No one came to his grave to say goodbye

With all the words he could have said,
Never once did he make this right
He left us here, to drown in a wake of his destruction
He is gone and we are to pick up the pieces

Well it never really was up to us
We never even stood a chance.
Now this is where we hardened our hearts

Now wake up, lets start it all anew
I know you're tired, your reasons for living are getting harder and harder to find
Just give us our chance to make this everything we've ever dreamed of

Oh god
Oh god
Oh god

This is an uphill battle and I'm losing the stride
Is there anyone who sees this?
This is an uphill battle and I'm losing the stride
Is there anyone who sees this?

I know you're tired, your reasons for living are getting harder and harder to find
Just give us a chance to make this everything we've ever dreamed of

This is an uphill battle and I'm losing the stride
Is there anyone who sees this?
This is an uphill battle and I'm losing the stride
Is there anyone who sees this?

And I have had enough




7. ANGEL WITH A DIRTY FACE

Lift high, your brazen calf
Praise him, for we are helpless
Every night you serve two masters,
Your hands are blistered
How long till we see you for what you really are?

Remove the mask
Your face is dirty
No prayers are ever gonna save you
You're on your own now
Why did you turn on us when we needed you the most?
You bound our outstretched hands and severed them at joint
So how are we to forgive and forget when I can taste the lust on your breath

You're pathetic and it makes me sick
Sick to my stomach, to be in love with a cancer

Every night you'd sell us out for the minute of sanity
To fly high above the trees
Yet you never made it off the ground
You make me sick
Get off your knees
That look is getting old, even for you
I refuse to be your crutch anymore.




8. DISPOSABLY YOURS

Fuck
And when no ears are there to hear,
We reach into our empty shells.
This is the hole I've dug for us, these plots are where we will sleep forever.
I buried myself with your last goodbye

This is an anthem for the broken
Struggle to stand as they push us back to our knees
Pulling for the strength to lift our heads reaching for the promise,
Bending to make an escape to the air below.

Now it's the fear that keeps us frozen
It's the apathy that holds me here

We bid farewell to the futures we will never find, An apology never mouthed. The earth, the sky, they follow us there.




9. A DEVIL'S RANSOM

My mouth's been full with the waste we made especially for a night like this.
For Quite some time now, I've carried all this weight
Just to prove to you and the rest of these critics that I can.

When my Skin stretches to fill the great growing void I'll give it all back.
Give it all back.

I'm hardening that soft spot you've been abusing all along
I think it best that you take this now
Cause what I need is a place of my own

Another promise broken
Another word kept silent
You're saving all the bad for a rainy day
Well the sun isn't shining

When my skin stretches to fill the great growing void ill give it all back.




10. FOOL'S GOLD

Pick up the pieces of a home that is forever broken
Pick up the pieces of child's life that will never be the same again
Every time you come around telling great lies of how this time everything will be different.
That You've changed
That you deserve a chance to right these wrongs

You look to me and see this is the end
We've learned to stand tall without you there to tear us down
You can come this far but no further
You've worn out your welcome

Pick up the pieces of a home that is forever broken
Pick up the pieces of child's life that will never be the same again
Every time you come around telling great lies of how this time everything will be different.
That You've changed
That you deserve a chance to right these wrongs

One day this will all come back on you
One day you'll get what you deserve

Pick up the pieces of a battered wife who trusted only you
I'm sure you feel more like a man
Pick up where you started life before you ruined everything

One day you'll get what you deserve

You look to me and see now that this is the end
We've learned to stand tall without you there to tear us down
You can come this far but no further
You've worn out your welcome




11. DUST TO DUST

And if I ever had a chance to tell you what this meant you would never believe me

So here we are with our heads in the sand,
And all I ever wanted was for you to be proud of me,
All I ever wanted was for you to care
Because now I don't feel so real to you

When all we are has turned to dust
When all we are has ceased to exist
Just remember, we wanted it this way

And if I ever had a chance to tell you what this meant, you would never believe me
So here we are with our heads in the sand,
And all I ever wanted was for you to be proud of me,

When all we are has turned to dust
When all we are has ceased to exist
Just remember, we wanted it this way
