I am digging deep, I am digging wide
Looking for clues, in the grand design
But no better, no better I'll never ever be
I f I can't keep what I find

Cuz I have failed so many things
And I have loved so foolishly
But oh, never no never have I walked this dark path
Or felt this troubled sleep

So can you make ends meet when they're tattered and frayed
Make peace with the things that you've done
Cuz the end has nothing to do with the means and the
Way that the battle's won

Cuz you try to talk me down
And I'm running all around
You try to make some sense of me
But there I am in pieces on the ground

And so I wander, so I lust
Ever wonder who to trust
Cuz there's no clear line from blindness to sight
No straight path from dust to dust

So can you make ends meet when they're tattered and frayed
Make peace with the things that you've done
When the end has nothing to do with the means and the
Way that the battle's won

And you try to talk me down
And I'm running all around
You try to make some sense of me
But there I am in pieces on the ground

So I am digging deep, I am digging wide
I can see true, when I see your eyes
And no better, no bettter I'll never ever be
Without love by my side

    General CommentFrom Jonatha: "Part Appalachian folk song, part rocking out, this is a searching song. Going through a troubled time, thank god getting to the other side. Digging deep. Reconciling all your choices, for better for worse. I love that it's off kilter in the verses. Where the hell was one anyway?? But more the abandon of the choruses. When we tracked the vocal, there were three Japanese engineers visiting Bob Clearmountain's studio, so they sat in the back when I did a couple of takes. When I came into the control room to listen back, they would applaud every time. They didn't speak any English, so it was this funny awkward sense of having to perform. I suppose it made me sing a little better in the end. Nothing like three engineers to keep your pitch in line."
