lyrics

What happens when you’re in too deep, the ground is getting tough,
And too much doesn’t feel like near enough.
Highway doing 90 going faster all the time,
You watch your exit dwindle there behind.
The first lie was the hardest thing you’ve ever had to do,
The second comes like water, not a single second’s thought.
The ends might justify the means, but that means it’s all on you,
So now you damn well better go and give it all you got.

Take the sour with the sweet, you know that once you hit six feet
You might as well just keep on digging.
Every man is born complete, but brother once you hit six feet
You might as well just keep on digging.

I loved you once in silence, but then I gave it tongue.
Now I can’t believe the thing I’ve done.
Every day I beat my head against a brunette wall.
Begin to lose my balance, start to crawl.
Should I remove my forehead while I’ve still got head to move,
Renounce the things I can’t have and accept the things I’m not?
Or should I choose the sweetness of “I’ve got something to prove,”
Take a running start and damn well give it all I’ve got?

Sang a song about the war, to find out what we’re fighting for
To my surprise, an answer came.
Sang a song about my sin, to find out how I might begin again;
The answer was the same.
Sang a song about my death, wondered should I save my breath?
But thank you lord, the answer still applies.
I’ll sing a song for all of you, hope you get my message too;
Now everybody look me in my eyes:

The dirt begins to taste so sweet, you know that once you hit six feet,
You might as well just keep on digging.
The rain, the hail, the snow, the sleet, forget ‘em once you hit six feet;
You might as well just keep on digging.
