"The Dirt" as written by and Mirel Wagner....
Momma, I know the well is dry
Sing me a song one more time
The wind is raging and the birds won't fly
Nothing to eat and nowhere to hide

Momma, it's gonna be alright
Tell me the story just one more time
Where the grass is green and the water runs wild
Where forever is forever and no-one has to die
'Cause you can't drink the dirt even if you wanna
You can't eat the dirt even if you wanna
You can't breathe the dirt even if you wanna
But you'll be in the dirt, you'll be the dirt

Momma, I know I'm ready now
I'm not afraid that you don't need to cry
Just close my eyes and wake up into a new life
Momma, there is no need to cry
'Cause you can't drink the dirt even if you wanna
You can't eat the dirt even if you wanna
You can't breathe the dirt even if you wanna
But you'll be in the dirt, you'll be the dirt
