Bury Me Standing

i dodged the lightning

still under a cloud
lean back if i speak too loud
if i don't hide

no one can hunt me down


fell off the map

went on the run
one story ended another begun
without a home

no one can come around


CHORUS
you'll have to bury me standing
you'll have to kick the day into the night
you'll have to dry me in that boiling sea
you'll have to bathe me in that cold cold light
you'll have to bury me standing
my suit on and my hat held tight
you'll have to dry me in the ocean
you'll have to bathe me in that fire's light


when i die i'm gonna sell out heaven

you can all go to hell
hanging from the clapper of an old church bell
you'll never hear the one tolling for you
i like to sit in the dark

cause it makes my thoughts bright
i like to call you up in the middle of the night

just to hear your dreams coming through


CHORUS


song of my soul

my voice is dead
you'll die unsung like tears unshed
but i can't lose what was never mine

i may be a false king

but i am a true prophet

I'm not gonna leave this world

till i watch it burn

burnin like the sun won't shine


CHORUS
