[Verse 1: Lambesis & Josh Gilbert]
Fm
I thought I was an architect but I was just moving dirt
Fm
Stacking mud over malice covered-up forming nothing but a pile of hurt
Fm
I hadn’t been building (Building)
The time was spent digging (Digging)
Fm
Boring the barriers that kept others away (Away)
                                                            Db   Eb
The deeper the walls, the less anyone could hear (Hear me) fall

[Pre-Chorus: Lambesis]
Fm
So now I know there is no one else to blame

[Chorus: Gilbert & Lambesis]
Fm
Buried alive inside of my own grave
And there's no one else to blame
Buried alive inside of my own grave
                  Cm
Inside of my own grave

[Verse 2: Lambesis]
Fm
Beneath my lies
Delusional enough to think I’d designed something great
Like a giant headstone inscribed to describe my shameful fate
Fm
I hadn't been building (Building)
The time was spent digging (Digging)
    Fm
An ugly truth from which there was no way to escape (Escape)
Nowhere left to hide and then finally forced to face what I'd become

[Chorus: Gilbert & Lambesis]
Fm
Buried alive inside of my own grave (My grave)
And there's no one else to blame
Buried alive inside of my own grave (My grave)
          Ab
What I'd become
        Bbm                     Fm
Buried alive inside of my own grave

[Interlude/Solo: Lambesis]
Fm
Beneath my pride crushing me
                   Ab      Eb
Beneath my lies collapsing
Fm             Eb   Fm    Cm
(But we are still alive)
Fm      Cm
We are still alive

[Bridge: Gilbert]
Db       Eb                    Fm
Buried alive inside of my own grave
            Eb
And there's no one else to blame
Db       Eb                     Fm
Buried alive inside of my own grave
        Fm
My own grave

[Chrorus: Gilbert & Lambesis]
Fm
Buried alive inside of my own grave
And there's no one else to blame
The lies and the weight, I know I lost my way (My way)
           Fm
What I'd become
Buried alive inside of my own grave (My grave)
And there's no one else to blame
Db       Bbm           Cm
Buried alive, buried alive

[Outro/Breakdown: Lambesis]
Cm                                |Fm
Finally forced to face what I'd become
What I'd become
(In my own grave)
Buried
(In my own grave)
Alive
