Oh bury me in my boots
So that my feet won’t get tangled up in roots
And Oh bury me under stones
So those grave robbers
Leave my old white bones

But shake that sand from my ears
So that I can hear
That the afterlife
Oh yes the after-life is calling me

And oh bury me in the sea
I’ll breathe that water
Flowing over me
And oh bury me in the sky
Oh in a grey cloud
Slowly floating by

But wipe that fog from my eyes
So that I can see
That the afterlife…
Oh yes the afterlife is coming for me

*Oh bury me bury me close to home
In the backyard under a stone
Bury me bury me close to home
In the trees my soul will roam
my my soul

And oh bury my body near
so in your presence, I will feel no fear

And oh bury me under that moon
So from this darkness, my soul will be free soon

cut those roots from my feet
so that I'll be free
'cuz the afterlife
Oh yes the afterlife is coming for me
