Buried Alive Lyrics - Avenged Sevenfold

Review The Song (3)

Take the time just to listen
When the voices screaming are much too loud
Take a look in the distance
Try and see it all

Chances are that you might find
That we share a common discomfort now
I feel I'm walking a fine line
Tell me only if it's real

Still I'm on my way
(On and on it goes)
Vacant hope to take

I can't live in here for another day
Darkness has kept the light concealed
Grim as ever
Hold on to faith as I dig another grave
Meanwhile the mice endure the wheel
Real as ever
And it seems I've been buried alive

I walk the fields through the fire
Taking steps until I found solid ground
Followed dreams, reaching higher
Couldn't survive the fall

Much has changed since the last time
And I feel a little less certain now
You know I jumped at the first sign
Tell me only if it's real

Memories seem to fade
(On and on it goes)
Wash my view away

I can't live in here for another day
Darkness has kept the light concealed
Grim as ever
Hold on to faith as I dig another grave
Meanwhile the mice endure the wheel
Real as ever
And I'm chained like a slave
Trapped in the dark
Slammed all the locks
Death calls my name
And it seems I've been buried alive

Take you down now
Burn it all out
Throw you all around
Get your fuckin' HANDS OFF ME!

What's it feel like?
Took the wrong route
Watch it fall apart
Now you're knockin' AT THE WRONG GATE!

For you to pay the toll
A price for you alone
The only deal you'll find
I'll gladly take your soul

While it seems sick
Sober up quick
Psycho lunatic crushing you with

Shame to find out
When it's too late
But you're all the same
Trapped inside INFERNO AWAITS!

Evil thoughts can hide
I'll help release the mind
I'll peel away the skin
Release the dark within

This is now your life
Strike you from the light
This is now your life
Die, buried alive x3

You know, I'd have to agree with you, if I heard this for the first time.. I'd think it was for Jimmy but, it's not. This song along with the rest of the album we're all written, they we're in the stage of recording it at the time, this song is not about Jimmy's death.

Almost every song on this album is about the drummer in one way or another (except Nightmare and Natural Born Killer). This one is clearly about his death, the first half of the song coming from the sadness of losing their friend and possibly guilt that they couldn't prevent it, the second half seems to be their anger towards him for being so careless. This is my favorite song on this album.

It's bittersweet that some of the best artistic work is born from tragedy.

So great | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/30/11

Damned if I feel identificated with this song. I think it's about when a person gets annoyed with another one, and he starts being silly with that person. So, at first, the second person feels sad about why is the other person angry.. Until he feds up and gets annoyed too, and every simple thing that the first person made to the second one is returned.
