Burial

You’ve laid me to rest.
I’m dead in your eyes.
You’ve nothing left to say.
Would you really let this decay?

You have made it clear as day
You want nothing to do with me
Yet I still hang on,
And so this will prolong

Yet I still hang on,
It goes on and on
And so this will prolong
It goes on and on

You are far from done.
You can’t just walk away from this love.
I won’t be the one
to let this die.
You’re gonna have to
look me in the eye.
Look me in the face
and explain to me.
What I have done that’s causing you to want to leave
Only then will I accept this reality.

I am not a problem
You can’t ignore me till I am gone
I am not a memory.
That will just vanish in time

At least have the decency.
To shovel the dirt upon me.
At the very least, Finish the job.
And let me die with peace inside of my my mind.

Bury me
Bury me
Pile the soil
Upon me

You’ve laid me to rest.
I’m dead in your eyes.
You’ve nothing left to say.
Would you really let this decay?
Is this how you say goodbye?
Speaking not a word?
After all we’ve done thus far
Do you really want to part?
