lyrics

Zip tied in the back of a pickup truck.
Out of hope and I'm running low on luck.
This is it I can hear the shovel digging.
I'm about to be buried alive.

Woke up to the sound of everyone I've wronged
They gathered 'round singing dirge of a broken man.
Whispered to me that it wouldn't be long
'Til it was my turn to pay the ferryman.
I found I was bound to my own remorse
He spoke up with a voice so course
"Leave me here and maybe you'll escape"!
But I couldn't and thus sealed my fate.

(Dig Deep)
Yelled the crowd of onlookers.
(Dig Deep)
Shouted all of my peers.
(Dig Deep)
In the soiled desert sand, and bury me in all of my fears.

The dirt was damp I didn't have a chance.
I gasped for air and up above they danced.
There was no trial, jury, or judge,
And now I'm buried deep in the sludge.
My wrists were bound my legs were tied,
Won't be long for my crimes I'm tried.
I can't escape so why would I try?
And now I've been buried alive.

Clawing at the roof, gasping for air.
To deny the truth I'll suffocate.
I brought them the shovels I gave them my hand.
So retell my story and get it straight.
I put myself here, I've made my demands.
I bought my own ransom according to plan.
You are the witness to all that I told.
You stood on the side and let it unfold.

(Dig Deep)
Yelled the crowd of onlookers.
(Dig Deep)
Shouted all of my peers.
(Dig Deep)
In the soiled desert sand, and bury me in all of my fears.

This is it I can hear the shovel digging.
This is it I can hear the call.
This is it and I am to blame.
Save yourself or I'll bury you all.
