Buried, buried deep down an abyss
Buried deep beneath all this
How did this happen?
Why to me?
Buried, buried crushing me
Don’t let me be buried
Buried alive
Don’t let this happen
Please lift and pry
Open the heavens
Let me see sky
My heart beats forever
Let it be
As the sun shines through
Don’t leave me buried
Let me survive.

We will not leave you there
We will not desert you
We will not leave you buried
We will stay and rescue
Miracles happen
And a miracle is you
Be patient we’re coming
Coming for you.

Please say a prayer that those trapped in the mall rubble at Elliot Lake be found
alive and go forth with happy, wonderful lives.
