about

Bury Me A Lion New York, New York

Bury Me A Lion found each other on Craigslist, yet the foursome never expected the chemistry they would end up with. Though each member has unique musical influences, the band formed with the same goal in mind: fuse their eclectic musical tastes to create an authentic spin on Rock ‘N’ Roll that has universal appeal. Bury Me A Lion has released their debut album, 'Year of the Lion,' in April 2012. ... more

Track Name: Be Your Own Bomb
No soulful self-direction
Always an earful of the worst advice
Deflect the blame for crude decision-making
And mindlessly I fall

For the oldest trick in the book

The sharpest rocks beneath the cliff
I've not the means to call it quits
All lies about the joy of trust
Supposed to lift, instead it shoves me off

A dearth of medication
"I told you so", "Just hear me out"
Prime fodder for a million conversations
But too weak to stand and make the call

You were always the weakest one in the pack

The indecision forms a rift
A cycle to which I commit
All lies about the joy of trust
Supposed to lift, instead it shoves me off

It shoves me off
Tired of this con
Too hot to calm
Be your own bomb
Track Name: Blurred
I said no

Don’t you understand my words / You’re so blurred / Can’t take it at all
Please just go!
You’ll have to figure it out there’s no doubt that clarity will come

I’d give it all
For this [Done]
And I know
That I am so done

I said no
Don’t you understand my words you’re so blurred can’t take it at all

It’s enough
Can’t you comprehend my thoughts what is the truth that you sought
We’re not on the same page...

I’d give it all
For this [Done]
And I know
That I am so done

I wish that I never met you
You should know
that I’d go back

I am so done.
Track Name: The Road
You're losing all the vivid pieces
When blood and bones begin to fold
Believe me when you're out of sequence
And you're far from home

We pray in the perfect church for
People who want to throw the stone

And I know how far
You're going to have to go
How much you'll have to take

Each tear conspires to keep our shirt wet
Another prayer that goes unheard
When "what's the magic word?" is way too easy
You can rest assured

We pray in the perfect church for
People who want to throw the stone

And I know how far
You're going to have to go
How much you'll have to take
So let me share the road
Track Name: Satellite
Satellite, woah satellite
Word on the street you’ll be coming back to me
C’mon with it, satellite

Feelin’, woah feelin’
Sifting out a dream, like the silence in a scream
C’mon with that feelin’

Skies they will part for you
How many secrets must I keep from you?
Eyes in the clouds peek through
How can I tell you the truth?
Cuz you know I’m still in love with you

Sleeping, don’t dare to sleep in
No need to dream the horizon in between
One eye always open

Waiting, patiently waiting
Here comes the part where I open up the thoughts
My chest has been holding

Is it the end of it all or the beginning?
Is it the end of it all or the beginning?
Is this the end of it all?

Skies they will part for you
How many secrets must I keep from you?
Eyes in the clouds peek through
How can I tell you the truth?
Cuz you know I’m still in love with you
Track Name: One Arm for Another
Trading one arm for another one
A set of smiles each under thumb
In competition with myself, can’t be outdone

Another scent locked in the sheets
So unsuspecting she takes a seat
Whoever said that they had to know or had to meet

I’m not in the wrong

Why do I have to choose
I can’t say I’ve got much to lose
When the lights go out, don’t change the fuse

Spendin’ my nights drenched in sweat
Low on sleep, we’ve hardly met
I close my eyes a bit before I change the set

I’m not in the wrong

Why do I have to choose
I can’t say I’ve got much to lose
When the lights go out, don’t change the fuse

Call you up on the phone
Try another if you’re not home
If I’ve got options, why be alone?
Track Name: Metabolism
I’ve covered up my tracks in the snow
I’ve filled in all the footsteps I’ve left behind
I can scream and know that I won’t make a sound
I’ve made it so that they won’t find me

Even if they search forever
Even if they scorch the globe

All the moments that you wait
All the precious time you waste
Every day, just to see if I’ll return to you
Why don’t you just move on and digest
The fact I’m gone

I can scream and know that I won’t make a sound
Now repeat, just to beat it once more

Even if you spend your lifetime
Pouring through the reasons why

All the moments that you wait
All the precious time you waste
Every day, just to see if I’ll return to you
Why don’t you just move on and digest
The fact I’m gone

It’s the best way I’ve discerned
To make sure that you’ve aptly heard me out
You won’t see me anymore
Track Name: Dinosaur
It’s all the same, people find a way
To eat my time up, to mess my life up

I’ve had enough
Enough to know that
I’m stuck
Cuz life finds a way

Tried to reason, oh, I’ve tried to reason
All my cares away, to keep my pains at bay

I’ve had enough
Enough to know that
I’m stuck
Cuz life finds a way

To ruin everything
Though I want to control everything
We envy the teeth of the tyrant and king
But we know we’re just bones, we’re just bones

I’ve had enough
Enough to know that
I’m stuck
Cuz life finds a way
Track Name: Metabolism (Grand Prize Winners from Last Year Remix)
I’ve covered up my tracks in the snow
I’ve filled in all the footsteps I’ve left behind
I can scream and know that I won’t make a sound
I’ve made it so that they won’t find me

Even if they search forever
Even if they scorch the globe

All the moments that you wait
All the precious time you waste
Every day, just to see if I’ll return to you
Why don’t you just move on and digest
The fact I’m gone

I can scream and know that I won’t make a sound
Now repeat, just to beat it once more

Even if you spend your lifetime
Pouring through the reasons why

All the moments that you wait
All the precious time you waste
Every day, just to see if I’ll return to you
Why don’t you just move on and digest
The fact I’m gone

It’s the best way I’ve discerned
To make sure that you’ve aptly heard me out
You won’t see me anymore
