Track Name: Dig
Dig - Lyrics
We stood... low, by the limestone at the turning of the road,
We took shelter, rain was the norm,
I placed my arm round to keep your body warm,
Threw a hand out to leave in no doubt to commuters and the passers-by,
Below the college shirt and shoe polish,
Electric lines ran overhead

Arrived at home to an empty room where I'd sit down and I’d waste the day away,
In all the silence I didn’t understand when I leave will the sound remain the same

They'll dig you ‘til you're worn out, with a face like stone
They'll dig you ‘til you're worn out, with a face like stone

And through the afternoon, twisted metal on a cathode silver screen,
Another scratched CD, breathe it, sleeve it, insert and start again

They'll dig you ‘til you're worn out, with a face like stone
We'll dig until we're worn out, with a face like stone

And soon we’re on the rise, hold fire ‘til you see the whites of their eyes
And soon we’re on the rise, hold fire ‘til you see the whites of their eyes

And soon they’d all arrive, as the teacher starts asking ‘bout our weekly passions,
End of his tether he’d make a threat, and call his army, then bend and disarm me,
And I wonder, was all worthwhile, though changes were needed, expressions had fleeted,
Back to another fraught long day, the diggin’ll be repeated in your head
Track Name: You I Know
Those are familiar knocks to me,
It's plain to see, the flickering lights are in disguise, they're sufferable but don't feel good,
Closed fist and alcohol, I'll forgive, I won't forget, these are the times to run a mile and save yourself indignity,
Alone in the afternoon, clothes dried but in denial,
Picking off leaves like war on peace, you've got them figured out for sure.

Wait for September to return, I'll feel I've earned the mythical stripes, they run for miles and I can see them glowing....
And these are the times to run a mile,
I'm sorry I had no fight,
Inside a mind resigned from life,

And if we'd all listened, if we'd all listened hard, if we'd all listened, might have been denied,

And if we'd all listened, if we'd all listened hard, if we'd all listened, though we never tried
