Dehumanizer

Buried Alive is the tenth and final track off of Black Sabbath's sixteenth album Dehumanizer.

Lyrics

 Once upon a nightmare
 Once upon a time
 You're running from temptation
 You got lost
 And found that you don't
 
 Belong to anybody
 You're all the same
 Just another number
 Cross it out
 Whenever you don't behave
 
 Someone got the doctor
 He knows what to do
 Throw some bones and mumble
 The devil's inside of you
 
 It might be contagious
 It might change the plan
 Get back in your tiny boxes
 Even if you can't
 We say you can
 
 Join the congregation
 Everybody's got to get in line and
 We never justify
 The choir sings a never-ending lie
 
 When you thought you were free
 You didn't need a reason
 No reason to survive
 
 As the big door closes
 And you waiting for the nail
 Somebody tell the world
 You're buried alive
 
 Once upon a nightmare
 Once upon a time
 You're running from tomorrow
 You got lost
 And found that another
 
 Day has turned to ashes
 Taken by the wind
 Frozen seeds of sorrow
 Never to begin
 
 Join the congregation
 Everybody's got to get in line and
 We never justify
 The choir sings a never-ending lie
 
 When you thought you were free
 You didn't need a reason
 No reason to survive
 
 As the big door closes
 And you waiting for the nail
 Somebody tell the world
 You're buried alive
 
 One more nightmare
 Just one more time
 Join the congregation
 Everybody get in line
 
 Celebration
 The choir sings a lie
 As you call
 The hammer falls
 And no one hears you cry
 I'm buried alive
