They’ll bury me a thousand times before I die And a thousand times I’ll rise again Better than I was before They’ll bury me, They’ll throw the dirt over my head Convincing themselves that I am dead With and arrogant certainty, they’ll bury me It’s a never ending struggle A constant fight to stay alive I guess we’ll see if it's me or My tormentors who survive They’ll bury me Digging deep and digging fast Hoping this time it will last for eternity They’ll bury me It’s a never ending cycle It goes round and round and round I try to stay on my feet They try to keep me in the ground They’ll bury me They’ll put the coins over my eyes Then they’ll be in for the big surprise that shouldn't be Cause it happens every time they bury me
2.
We all have gifts Some of us know what they are Some of us don't know yet We all have things That God has given us to help each other with I believe this is true And I believe when I look at you Yours is not the gift of wisdom I hear it every time you open up your mouth Yours is not the gift of wisdom We all know it's true from the things you spew Claiming Old Testament verses out of context Saying they're for you I'm sorry but I didn't know you were a 2600 year old Jew Claiming success in this life from Jeremiah Tell it to Saint Paul, Peter and Uriah
3.
Only when you know there's a way out Can you dwell on things that seem so hopeless Only when you know the mystery Can you contemplate your own destruction I Can Move Only when you see your failures Can you really see the not yet Only when you throw your hands up Can you really ever do anything I Can Move Only when you look outside you Can you see how you fit in Only when you quit holding on Can you really grasp anything

How long will I ignore you before it goes away How long will I ignore you before it goes away Will you darken my heart Will you darken my heart It gets easier every time I turn away To not feel like I'm wrong I'll sing along With the sirens as they lead me to destruction And the songs we sing sound so much better to my ears then your voice I'll make a choice to ignore you while you're calling me back home I know there's no life without you I know there's nowhere I can go It gets easier every time I turn away To not feel like I'm wrong I'll sing along With the sirens as they lead me to destruction And the songs we sing sound so much better to my ears then your voice I'll make a choice to ignore you while you're calling me back home
