We all have a weakness
But some of ours are easy to identify.
Look me in the eye
And ask for forgiveness
We'll make a pact to never speak that word again.
Yes, you are my friend.

We all have something that digs at us
At least we dig each other.
So when weakness turns my ego up
I know you'll count on the me from yesterday.

If I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song
Remind me that we'll always have each other
When everything else is gone.

We all have a sickness
That cleverly attaches and multiplies
No matter how we try.

We all have someone that digs at us
At least we dig each other.
So when sickness turns my ego up
I know you'll act as a clever medicine.

If I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song
Remind me that we'll always have each other
When everything else is gone.
Oh, each other
When everything else is gone

Ohh...

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, ohhhh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, ohhhhh

If I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song
Remind me that we'll always have each other
When everything else is gone.
Oh, each other
When everything else is gone.
Ohhh, each other
When everything else is gone.

    General CommentI look at it in the sense of a person digging through the layers of superficiality and uncovering what really lies underneath in another person. If one of the two becomes bitter or wretched in the world crowded by such negative feelings, the other will "dig" out the good in the other, and make them whole again. Such an amazing songs I have passed on to my friends.

    General CommentIts about changing who you are...its almost as if the writer wrote a letter to his friend asking him that if he changes or tries to act better than everyone else (So when weakness turns my ego up) he needs his friend to bring him back to the way he was (I know you'll count on the me from yesterday.). get rid of this new me and get me back to the way i was.(dig me up from under what is covering the better part of me.) always be there for me, even when nobody else is (remind me that we'll always have each other when everything else is gone.) basically this songs about friendship...thats what i think...

    General Commentwhether it be your bf/gf, or friend, or family member.. this is how i see it.


    that when your at your very worst,
    and you loose faith in yourself and everything around you,
    by whatever problem or circumstance your in. that when you
    loose yourself completely through all the negativity, there's always going to be that
    someone that can "save" you or "dig"
    you from whatever's taking over and find the good in you,
    and make you whole again.

    General CommentWhat a song! I'm thinking that its about the guys in the band always keeping each others feet on the ground and that they'll always be friends no matter what little things each does to bug or "dig" at another. I can see this song being a pretty damn successful single

    My InterpretationI don't think words can describe the pure simplicity of this song that tackles such a deeper, profound meaning. Friendship? Yes. But more importantly, the rawness of one's personal friendships, relationships and connections with people that truly touch our hearts in this harsh world.
    The first time I heard this song, I liked it. Usually it takes a couple of listens to hear the inner beauty, but this was expertly crafted to hit the heart quickly and heavily. Bravo Incubus, you have restored my faith in good, simple, heartfelt music.

    General CommentIt's hard to find someone who will dig you out instead of dig into you.

    General CommentThis song was one of the first to get stuck in my head,
    I think its almost like a lean on me sorta song
    except more then just be there for me when im down,
    but give me a reality check, make sure im true to who i am.

    General CommentBy far one of my favorite songs on the new album and a fav among ALL thier songs, and that's saying a lot.

    Brings on the same sort of feelings that "The Warmth" does, and yea it's really hard not to listen to again and again. I always play it whenever I put the new CD in.

    Can't WAIT to see them live here in orlando playing it
