Verse 1

No, don't, don't, don't dare do this!

Please, leave, leave, leave me in peace!

All I ask for is a little space six feet under.

Don't I even deserve this little entitlement?

I don't have any riches, so why would you plunder

The sorry excuse of a grave where my spirit went?

Chorus

You're digging up the dead and the decayed

Parts of me I once upon a time laid

Down on Mother Earth, hoping she'll absorb the pain.

Now you're robbing me of my dignity again.

Verse 2

No, don't, don't, don't dare do this!

Please, leave, leave, leave me in peace!

I gave up everything I ever was, ever had,

What more can you possibly steal from me, Destiny?

My soul has been long broken, my dead heart's iron clad.

And it looks like they're all rising up in mutiny.

As they witness how

Chorus

You're digging up the dead and the decayed

Parts of me I once upon a time laid

Down on Mother Earth, hoping she'll absorb the pain.

Now you're robbing me of my dignity again,

Bridge

Stealing away my pride in having a soul so immobile,

Just like you stole the brightest flash of lightning they called my smile.

Destiny, sweet robber of my grave,

You sing to me, "Be brave, be brave",

But I'm frightened by what's to become of the dead and the decayed

Parts of me I once upon a time laid

Down on Mother Earth, hoping she'll absorb the pain.

Now you're robbing me of my dignity again.

Chorus

You're digging up the dead and the decayed

Parts of me I once upon a time laid

Down on Mother Earth, hoping she'll absorb the pain.

Now you're robbing me of my dignity again.

Outro

(Chorus) No, don't, don't, don't dare do this!

Please, leave, leave, leave me in peace!

(Chorus) No, don't, don't, don't dare do this!

Please, leave, leave, leave me in peace!

(Solo) No, don't, don't, don't dare do this!

Please, leave, leave, leave me in peace!
