"The Hole" as written by Donald Ewing Ii and James Dean Hicks....
A friend of mine bought himself a shovel
Said I'm gonna tunnel me a line
He set out to be a rich man
Happiness is what he thought he'd find
got in too deep to see the diamonds
Down to dark to see the gold
Now he won't let go of the shovel
And he can't dig out of the hole

Deeper and deeper
he's goin' down
Drivin' his future right into the ground
He thinks he's closer
The further he goes
But he's still on the bottom
And he can't dig out of the hole

I tried to throw the man a lifeline
I tried to send him down a rope
I don't think he hears me callin'
But every day I pray and i hope
Somehow he finally gets the message
Every spade of dirt he throws
Only gets him closer to the devil
And he can't dig out of the hole


Maybe we could learn a little lesson
Maybe this could shine a little light
there's no healthy way to mess with
The line between a wrong and a right
Use the one chance you've been given
Cause once you're in the ground and cold
Its too late to start livin'
See you can't dig out of the hole
