Hole to Dig (clip & Lyrics)

The pills I take keep me awake but help me settle down, to mediate the frequencies and help me find a ground. The speed at which I move results from dissonance, just the beats between the tones I'm tuning in my head.

So I sing. You sing. We sing.
Oh no, here it comes again, the silence I can't break, the breath I can't take, the feeling I can't shake there's a black cloud following me.

'Cause every man's got a hole to dig, a soul to sieve, and a gut to shiv to bleed out the poisons he has inherited. Should I choose to bleed, will you wait for me or will I bleed alone? When your sadness grows you'll turn to me like a rose turning to the sun. Your bitter pollen words will taste like honey on our tongues when sung.

So I sing. You sing. We sing.
Oh no, here it comes again, the silence I can't break, the breath I can't take, the feeling I can't shake there's a black cloud following me. I panicked. I panicked again.

So I sing. You sing. We sing. We sing. We sing again.
