You took the steps down to my heart
Shone a torch to pierce the dark
It let you see where you were going
And in a corner cold and dank
Propped up beside a storage tank
You found the feelings that weren't showing

And if you dig deep enough
You hit the darker stuff
Excavation bones

So you peeled away the skin
Past the ribs straight to the sin
To find out what I'm really made of
And then you turned your face away
As you ate the words you use to say
I am afraid you've found what you're afraid of

And if you dig deep enough
You hit the darker stuff
Excavation bones

Find a little plot of land
Put a spade into your trembling hands
Dig a hole as wide as it is deep
Then take the love you use to feel
Lay it in that gash of field
Tell yourself its only gone to sleep
And as the dirt begins to rise
Wipe the anger from your burning eyes
The sweat will dilute the tears you weep

Cause if you dig deep enough
You hit the darker stuff
Yes, if you dig deep enough
You hit the darker stuff

Excavation Bones
