We were shooting at a mound of dirt
Well nothing was broken and nothing was hurt
But I probably really should have been at work
But if my free time's gone would you promise me this
That you will

Please bury me with it
Please bury me with it

Well sure as plans come, I know that they end
And if I'm here when that happens just promise me this my friend

Please bury me with it
I just don't need none of that Mad Max bullshit

Well the suit got tight and it split at the seams
But I kept it out of habit and I kept it real clean
But if it's getting faded, if it's running out of thread
Could you do this for me my friend?
And please just

Please bury me with it
Please bury me with it

Well we moved to the left and we moved to the right
And sure as hell we stayed out almost every single night
But if the party's over, if the fun has to end
Could you do this for me my friend?
Would you just

Please bury me with it
Please bury me with it

Good news for people who love bad news
We've lost the plot and we just can't choose

We are hummingbirds who are just not willing to move
And there's good news for people who love bad news
We are hummingbirds who lost the plot and we will not move
We have good news for anyone who loves bad news

We were aiming at the moon we were shooting at the stars
But the kids were just shooting at the buses and the cars
So don't drink the water, don't you breathe the air
And if it's gotten to that point then I have to declare
That you

Please bury me with it
Please bury me with it

Well, fads, they come, and fads, they go
And, God I love the rock and roll!
Well the point was fast but it was too blunt to miss
Life handed us a paycheck and we said "we worked harder than this"

Please bury me with it
Please bury me with it

Oh shit, now...

We are hummingbirds who are just not willing to move
And there's good news for people who love bad news
We are hummingbirds who lost the plot and we will not move
We have good news for anyone who loves bad news

    i think what he's saying is that the memories are great but once he dies he wants everyone to just let it be, forget about it, and live on life.
