Motorhead – Buried Alive lyrics
Times are hard and times are bad
Nobody is innocent
Say just what you want to see
Tell me who you want to be

See the only friend you got
Open throat and money shot

Gone for the day, out for a ride
Can't stay in here so I'm going outside
Burned in the sun, soaked to the skin
Buried alive and it's doing me in

Time is now and you're the one
Keep us from our liberty
In the night we spend our seed
Listening to women bleed

See the one you want the most
Hanging from the whipping post

Gone for a smoke, out for the day
Can't stand the pain so I'm going away
Taken in lust, given in sin
Buried alive and it's doing me in, oh yeah

Time to be the man you are
Nobody is gonna win
All the time we see the deal
Devil driver, hell on wheels

See the world and shoot it dead
Burn the town and paint it red

Gone for a swim, can't bear to see
I'll do what I can get, maybe get laid
Can't wait for you, I won't play the game
Buried alive and I'm going insane

Shoot me right now, [Incomprehensible]
Or run me down in a big shiny car
Lost in the ozone, gone for a swim
Buried alive and it's doing me in
Doing me, doing me in
