I twist and turn
In the darkest space
Can't find my worth
As I numb the pain

Glass to the sky
With a blacktooth grin
This whiskey smile
Takes me down again

I'm cold and I'm so afraid
And I'm too weak and I can't change

[Chorus:]
I've been buried alive and
I don't wanna be here anymore
Reached out a thousand times for
A hand to pull me from below
I've been buried alive in a world
Of constant sorrow
Reach down tonight and set me free...
Save tomorrow

Another shot
Slip into the haze
Another night
Soaked in my disgrace

Toast to the lie
I'll raise my glass and run
A wasted life
What have I become?

I've been buried alive and
I don't wanna be here anymore
Reached out a thousand times for
A hand to pull me from below
I've been buried alive in a world
Of constant sorrow
Reach down tonight and set me free...
Save tomorrow

Save tomorrow
Save tomorrow

Let me breathe again
Show me where I begin
To find the will to change
Before I lose everything

I've been buried alive and
I don't wanna be here anymore
Reached out a thousand times for
A hand to pull me from below
I've been buried alive in a world
Of constant sorrow
Reach down tonight and set me free...
Save tomorrow

Reach down tonight and set me free
And I will follow

(Solo)

    This song is clearly about the struggles associated with drinking. One can lean on the bottle to "numb the pain" and "slip into the haze", but deep down we know we need to change "before we lose everything". It's easier said than done since we've "reached out a thousand times for a hand to pull us from below".
