about

"So much of my life I've spent struggling with shyness and social anxiety disorder. When you have so much to say to people, yet something in your wiring just won't allow you to say it, it can be physically painful. Every time, I feel like I'm missing another opportunity to make a friend or be a stronger person, and then that makes me feel even worse about myself. The fear becomes so crippling, it feels like you're being buried alive. I hope this song helps other people who are struggling. We still have so much power within us to be the people that we want to be. We just have to be brave enough to speak up."

lyrics

Biting my lip and shying away,
You don't want to hear what I say anyway.
Second guessing my thoughts to the point
that there's no point.

Biding my time, it ends up a waste
Not seeing the clock, but still feeling the chase
always justifying why I should stop trying.

But someday, I'm gonna rip the tape off
and scream my face off
Someday I'm gonna tear this place up

When the dirt's fallin' in
on the grave that I put myself in,
Overcome with shy, I bury me alive.

I let myself down it's like a disease.
No one knows my name because I never speak
I keep my thoughts inside and lose another night

But someday, I'm gonna rip the tape off
and scream my face off
Someday I'm gonna tear this place up

When the dirt's fallin' in
on the grave that I put myself in,
Overcome with shy, I bury me alive.

Some say silence- it is golden
But its holdin' me down
Some say silence- it is golden
But its holdin' me

When the dirt's fallin' in
on the grave that I put myself in,
Overcome with shy, I bury me alive.
The dirt's fallin' in
on the grave that I put myself in,
Overcome with shy, I bury me alive,
I bury me, I bury me, I bury me alive
bury me alive
bury me alive
bury me alive
