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 ya 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

Hey 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 walked 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

Hey 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 you're 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 hands of fate
 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

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

This is now your life
Die buried alive
