Fish – Digging Deep

Digging deep in the darkness
Digging it deep, down deep, down deep, down, digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it deep, down deep, down, deep, down, digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it deep, down, down, down, down, digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it down, deep down, deep, down deep, digging it

We watched an insect stray to the edge of it’s world
A lily pad stretched over a green mirror
In which the ghost carp swirl like clouds before a storm
This is the season of the rains
This is incoming

And when it came their was no cover, no place to hide
Vision blurred, hard to breathe
Trying hard to hold onto something that’s real
Nothing left, nowhere to go
No open road it’s washed away by swollen srteams
Carried off downriver with all my broken dreams

Digging deep in the darkness
Digging it deep, down deep, down deep, down, digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it deep, down deep, down, deep, down, digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it deep, down, down, down, down, digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it down, deep down, deep, down deep, digging it

A tethered goat bleats from the corner of the graveyard
Where the lizards hang motionless
As the angels of stone above them
Their broken wings throwing long shadows
Into the grass where the scorpions hide
The tigers are running out of jungle

In the end I was tired of being asked
If I could say that I was happy now
As if you need me to convince you that everything’s okay
Would you take me back

Digging deep in the darkness
Digging it deep, down deep, down deep, down, digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it deep, down deep, down, deep, down, digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it deep, down, down, down, down, digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it down, deep down, deep, down deep, digging it

Are you happy now
You keep asking, asking am I happy now
Why can’t you tell me that I’m happy now
Are you happy now
Happy now, happy now
