Song 0.2

Diggin’ my grave
I’m diggin’ my grave
Shallow or deep
Nothin’ left there to save
I’m diggin’ my grave
I’m diggin’ my grave
Be it bitter or sweet
Neither coward nor brave

Took out my heart
It’s in a plain cedar chest
I hear it still beatin’
To my sins it attests

Took out my eyes
All bloodshot and worn
They can see in the darkness
And they’re still filled with scorn

Diggin’ my grave
I’m diggin’ my grave
Shallow or deep
Nothin’ left there to save
I’m diggin’ my grave
I’m diggin’ my grave
Be it bitter or sweet
Neither coward nor brave

Took out my lungs
They’re wonderin’ yet
Where does the smoke go
When it comes out in your breath

Took out my brain
Stop it tormentin’ me
Taking its sweet time
To stop singin’ out of key

Diggin’ my grave
I’m diggin’ my grave
Shallow or deep
Nothin’ left there to save
I’m digging’ my grave
I’m diggin’ my grave
Be it bitter or sweet
Neither coward nor brave

I took off my feet
So I can’t run back
But I’m still tryin’ to crawl to you
Like some bloody stumped rat

I took off my hands
So I could no longer touch
Fingerprints gone in fire’s embrace
No more to feel too much

Diggin’ my grave
I’m diggin’ my grave
Shallow or deep
Nothing left there to save
I’m diggin’ my grave
I’m diggin’ my grave
Be it bitter or sweet
Neither coward nor brave

So now my pieces are restin’
An example to set
Their quota of hurtin’
I’m laying deeply to rest

Still I’m here in the distance
On my shovel I lean
Buried eyes still awatchin’
Buried heart still aflame

Diggin’ my grave
I’m diggin’ my grave
Shallow or deep
Nothin’ left there to save
I’m diggin’ my grave
I’m diggin’ my grave
Be it bitter or sweet
Neither coward nor brave
