Buried Alive
Rory Webley Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'm sorry, I seem boring
I'm just stuck in purgatory
Normally I'm fun
But in this place I'm numb
I'm beginning to forget
What it felt like to be alive
Before my beating heart flatlined
My blood's running cold
I think something broke
Got no one to hold
I haven't been myself
Ever since I was buried in the dirt

Yeah I'm haunting you
But you're haunting me too
Do you feel bad for what you said?
The poison that you fed
You're the reason that I'm dead

You buried me alive
One lie after the other
I keep saying that I'm fine
But baby my body's buried in the ground
Bones breaking down

You buried me alive
One lie after the other
I keep saying that I'm fine
But baby my body's buried in the ground
Bones breaking down I keep staring at the mirror
Tryna see my figure
But there's just a blank space
Or someone else's face
I'm getting kinda worried
I'll be spending forever
Trapped in this cold wet cellar all alone
I'm bound to this house
There's no way out
The thoughts in my head
Are freaking me out
I haven't been myself
Ever since I was buried in the dirt

Yeah I'm haunting you
But you're haunting me too
Do you feel bad for what you said?
The poison that you fed
You're the reason that I'm dead

You buried me alive
One lie after the other
I keep saying that I'm fine
But baby my body's buried in the ground
Bones breaking down
You buried me alive
One lie after the other
I keep saying that I'm fine
But baby my body's buried in the ground
Bones breaking down
You buried me alive
But I hope one day
I'll make it out this place
I keep saying that I'm fine
Lying to myself
Tryna forget I died
I keep saying that I'm fine
But it gets so cold
All alone on the other side

You buried me alive
One lie after the other
I keep saying that I'm fine
But baby my body's buried in the ground
Bones breaking down
You buried me alive
One lie after the other
I keep saying that I'm fine




But baby my body's buried in the ground
Bones breaking down

Overall Meaning

"Buried Alive" is a song about feeling stuck in a state of limbo, metaphorically represented as being buried alive. The singer of the song is in a purgatory of sorts, feeling numb and forgetting what it felt like to be alive before their heart stopped beating. The lyrics speak to the idea that negative emotions can be suffocating and lead to a feeling of being trapped. The singer is haunted by the person who buried them alive, but they also feel haunted by their own thoughts and memories. They keep telling themselves that they're fine, but their body is breaking down and they are slowly losing their grip on reality.


The lyrics also touch on issues of trust and betrayal. The singer was buried alive by someone they trusted, who fed them poison in the form of lies. They feel that this person is the reason they are dead, and they are haunted by their actions. The singer is trying to forget and move on, but they are unable to do so because they are constantly reminded of the betrayal that led to their current state.


Overall, "Buried Alive" is a powerful song about feeling trapped in a negative emotional state and the struggle to move past trauma and betrayal.

I'm sorry, I seem boring
I apologize for appearing uninteresting


I'm just stuck in purgatory
I feel trapped in an intermediate state


Normally I'm fun
Typically, I am lively


But in this place I'm numb
However, I feel emotionless in this situation


I'm beginning to forget
I am starting to lose memory of


What it felt like to be alive
How it felt to exist


Before my beating heart flatlined
Prior to my heart stopping


My blood's running cold
I am becoming cold and lifeless


I think something broke
I believe something has been shattered


Got no one to hold
I have no one to comfort me


I haven't been myself
I have not been acting as my usual self


Ever since I was buried in the dirt
Since I was buried in the ground


Yeah I'm haunting you
I am a ghost that is persistently bothering you


But you're haunting me too
However, you are also haunting me


Do you feel bad for what you said?
Do you regret what you told me?


The poison that you fed
The toxic words you used


You're the reason that I'm dead
You caused my demise


You buried me alive
You left me to die while still breathing


One lie after the other
You told me multiple falsehoods


I keep saying that I'm fine
I continue to claim that I am okay


But baby my body's buried in the ground
Even though my corpse has been buried


Bones breaking down
My skeletal structure is decomposing


I keep staring at the mirror
I am constantly gazing at my reflection


Tryna see my figure
Struggling to recognize my own appearance


But there's just a blank space
However, there is nothing there


Or someone else's face
Or the visage of someone else


I'm getting kinda worried
I am becoming somewhat anxious


I'll be spending forever
I will be stuck here for all of eternity


Trapped in this cold wet cellar all alone
Confined to this damp and chilly basement without any company


I'm bound to this house
I am tied to this residence


There's no way out
There is no escape


The thoughts in my head
The ideas that occupy my mind


Are freaking me out
Are causing me extreme distress


But it gets so cold
However, it becomes incredibly chilly


All alone on the other side
Completely by myself on the opposite end


But I hope one day
However, I aspire that eventually


I'll make it out this place
I will manage to escape from this location


Lying to myself
Deceiving myself


Tryna forget I died
Attempting to ignore the fact that I have passed away
