**|VERSE lyrics|**

I buried my heart in a hole in the ground   (example: A# C G)
With the lights and the roses and the cowards down-town
They threw me a party there was no one around
They tried to call my girl but she could not be found

I buried my guilt in a pit in the sound
With the rust and the vultures and the trash down-town
So don't step to me, kid you'll never be found
'Cos while you were sleeping I took over your town (G is maintained until PRE-CHORUS - 1:16)
