Buried Myself Alive Lyrics - The Used

Review The Song (31)



You almost always pick the best time,
to drop the worst lines.
You almost made me cry again this time.
Another false alarm,
red flashing lights.
Well this time I'm not going to watch myself die.

I think I made it a game to play your game
and let myself cry.
I buried myself alive on the inside,
so I could shut you out,
and let you go away for a long time. GET OUT!

I guess it's ok I puked the day away.
I guess it's better you trapped yourself in your own way.
And if you want me back,
you're gonna have to ask.

I think the chain broke away,
sponsored links
and I felt it the day that I had my own time
I took advantage of myself and felt fine.
But it was worth the night,
I caught an early flight and I made it home.

I guess its ok I puked the day away
I guess its better you trapped yourself in your own way.
And if you want me back
you're gonna have to ask
nicer than that
nicer than that...

With my foot on your neck
I finally have you,
Right where I want you,
Right where I want you,
Right where I want you,
Right where I want you

I guess its ok I puked the day away
I guess its better you trapped yourself in your own way
And if you want me back,
You're gonna have to ask

Nicer than that,(I guess its ok I puked the day away)
Nicer than that (I guess its better you trapped yourself in your own way)
Yeah, and if you want me back,
You're gonna have to ask
Nicer than that
Nicer!!
Nicer!!

Addiction? | Reviewer: Anon | 9/20/12

I think this song is about addiction, it says things like:
"I think the chain broke away,
and I felt it the day that I had my own time
I took advantage of myself and felt fine.
But it was worth the night"

I think the lines that go 'I think the chain broke away, and I felt it the day that I had my own time' could mean something like, the day he was clean he felt free, he wasn't being held down by an addiction, and then the lines that go:

'I took advantage of myself and felt fine.
But it was worth the night.' Could mean that he gave into his addiction but didn't care, 'cause it felt too good and it was only one night?

I don't know, this is just my personal viewpoint.

in my opinion | Reviewer: mais Shareef | 8/24/12

in my lyrical point of view it's about my brother. " You almost always pick the bat time to drop the worst line. almost made me cry". When I'm happy about to go out with my friends he comments on my clothing hair or just me and putsme in a bad mood. " not gonna watch myself die" I'm standing up to him. In the course: Hes so close minded and thinks it ok to call people names. He is going to have to change is he wants me to talk to him again. " With my foot on your neck I finally have you right where I want you" He knows I hate him now and if continues with his behaviour one day I'm gonna have the upper hand and he will have to beg me to let him go. I hate my brother.

Interpretatuin | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/19/11

I think this song is about having an eating disorder, namely bulimia since the lead singer was bulimic for a long time. and fyi the leader singer of my chemical romance is not gay. he is married to the bassist who is a woman from mindless self indulgence

this dudes gay | Reviewer: mattyice | 1/12/11

you guys keep saying this girl hurt him, the lead singer of the used is gay man he was actually dating the other dude from my chemical romance and i think this songs about him thought u should know

love lost and love unforgotten | Reviewer: Mike mt guy | 10/24/10

I believe this songs the best it gets you thikin if you go in to the situation which to me its him being played with until he couldnt take it no more standing his ground and making her see she cant mess with him no more so now shes basically in his place "you almost made me cry again this time" meaning he aint falling for it no more "burried my self alive" so I could shut you out" as ignore her feelings like she did to him" I guess its ok that I puked the day away" I guess its better you t1apped yourself in your own way meaing he stood,his ground and now showin her what he felt from her now I got you where I want you meaning he got her where she usually has him you gonna have to ask n if you want me back u gonna have to ask nicer than that meaning shes pulled the same stunt more than once and this time ending the cycle of her playing with him he finally lost him mainly to me its a game that hes loosing then realizes and begins stNding his ground puting her in his place

meaning | Reviewer: Nicole | 9/27/10

i think its about recovering from an acohol related addiction. The lyrics "You almost always pick the best time,
to drop the worst lines.
You almost made me cry again this time.
Another false alarm,
red flashing lights.
Well this time I'm not going to watch myself die.

I think I made it a game to play your game
and let myself cry.
I buried myself alive on the inside,
so I could shut you out,
and let you go away for a long time. GET OUT!

I guess it's ok I puked the day away.
I guess it's better you trapped yourself in your own way.
And if you want me back,
you're gonna have to ask.
" sound a lot like he wants to drink but he wont watch himself die. The red lights can serve as anambulence if he got alcohol poisoning. The alarm can be the sirens. Playing alcohols game could be a metaphor. And basically, puking the day away is a give away. Its just a thought.

Interpretation | Reviewer: Courtney | 8/22/10

Although I believe songs are supposed to be interpreted differently by each person according to their experiences, I think this song is about losing a friend/lover. When the narrator lost them, they were so upset they felt sick, but kept "playing their game" trying to get them back. By the time the subject was going to try again, the narrator realized they didn't need to be fucked around like that.

Blah | Reviewer: Me | 5/28/10

I think song are written so people can interpret them for themselves. When I hear this song I think about someone losing someone they loved. Whether or not that person left because they weren't getting along or they didn't have they same views. Its not about that. Its about the feeling. You know the feeling that you just lost everything. You don't know where to go who to talk to or even what to say. So what would you if you felt like this? I know what I'd do, I would drink, all day everyday if i had to. Just tip a bottle until the feeling goes away.

Sevvy is right | Reviewer: Luis | 2/7/10

Self Esteem and this song relate to much. It sucks when it happens to you though, haha. So if you're ever stuck with "self esteem" just move onto "buried myself alive". It's not love if she abuses from you. Just getting the eff out of it is always better. (:

is this the song bulimic? | Reviewer: eowyn | 11/11/08

well, i know bullimic is a different song from buried myself alive.this song is so great! it means a lot to me. and it is so nice to hear a personality of bert singing this lyrics. he is much in love to a person who doesnt really care the way he does. he expresses his longing only thru his songs,poor bert.T_T

not about buliema | Reviewer: nick | 10/21/08

if you watch you see that the song its self is how he is trying to shut he self tus i buired my self alive on the inside so i can shut you out the by puked the day away it mean he is sick with sadness like it is so bad that it causes vomiting but she is trapped in her ways and wont change so if she wants him back she will have to ask naicer and change

buried myself alive | Reviewer: Sevvy | 10/6/08

In a sense I find this song closely related to Self Esteem by the Offspring, how an individual can allow someone else to (physically / mentally) abuse them over and over again. It's like Buried myself alive is the sequel to Self esteem, i.e. the individual has made the decision to let the other no longer abuse them, but still longs back to that in some way.

Anyway, for me it's just a memory from my darker days that I still play when I feel a bit dark again.

Sick to his stomach | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/1/08

I agree with sabrina, I think he literally puked the day away because he was sick to his stomach from her. It's not hard to imagine because I have felt the same way.

"You almost always pick the best time,
to drop the worst lines."

When she broke up/something horrible with him... for me it was that phone call at 4am and I couldn't sleep all night..
