digger man lay your spade down
i think that i might stick around
and why, watch the colours as they fade

from pawnshop shees to balcony's
we'll parafrase eternities
and all the institutions of decay

and i'm still be coming/calling
as the daylight's drumming
and the feeling fades away

and the bells are jamming
and the heights of diamond
as i'm trying to find my way

silently your secrets crawled
on paper cranes and bathroom walls
but no-one is ever dead.....

she held me like a sinking stone
the one you wish you'd never thrown
but it is too late
too late to dry my out

cause your touch still lingers
on my shaky fingers
as the feeling fades away

but the bells are jamming
and the heights of diamond
and i'm trying to find my wayayay

and it's sundown on the western sea
this one sinks an infomy?
and i watch you watch me
while i walk away

it's pale light on the patio
where lepers leep and whispers blow
and everyone seeks someone to betray

and my load starts beating
but i might be dreaming
as the feeling fades away

but the bells are jamming
and the heights of diamond
as i'm trying to find my wayayay

    "Digger man lay your spade down
    I think that i might stick around awhile
    and watch the colors as they fade

    From pawn shop sheets to balconies
    we'll paraphrase eternities
    and all the institutions of decay

    And i'm still becoming
    as the daylight's drumming
    and the feeling fades away

    And the bells are chiming
    in the heights of diamond
    as i'm trying to find my way

    And silently your secrets scrawled
    on paper cranes and bathroom walls
    but no one's ever dared figure you out

    So you held me like a sinking stone
    the one you wish you'd never thrown
    but it's too late, it's too late to dry me out

    Cause your touch still lingers
    on my shaky fingers
    as the feeling fades away

    But the bells are chiming
    in the heights of diamond
    and i'm trying to find my way

    And it's sun down on the western sea
    and this one sinks in infamy
    and i watch you watch me while i walk away

    And it's pale light on the patio
    where lepers leap and whispers blow
    and everyone seeks someone to betray

    And my load stars beaming
    but i might be dreaming
    as the feeling fades away

    But the bells are chiming
    in the heights of diamond
    as i'm trying to find my way"
