"Dig" as written by Chad L. Gray, Matthew Mcdonough, Greg Tribbett and Ryan Martinie....
Dig bury me
Underneath everything that I am rearranging
Dig bury me
Underneath everything that I was slowly changing

I would love to beat the face,
Of any motherfucker that's thinkin' they can change me
White knuckles grip pushing through for the gold
If you want a piece of me I broke the motherfuckin' mold
I'm drowning in your wake
Shit rubbed in my face
Teething on concrete
Gums bleeding

Dig bury me
Underneath everything that I am rearranging
Dig bury me
Underneath everything that I was slowly changing

I struggle in violated space
Sell out motherfuckers in the biz that try to fuck me
Hang by their Ts rated PG in sight
I ain't sellin' my soul when there's nothin' to buy
I'm livid in my space
Pissing in my face
Fuck you while you try
To fuck me

Dig bury me
Underneath everything that I am rearranging
Dig bury me
Underneath everything that I was you ain't fuckin' changin' me

Dig see'mon motherfucker
Dig see'mon motherfucker
Dig see'mon motherfucker
Dig

Let me help you tie the rope around your neck
Let me help to talk you the wrong way off a ledge
Let me help you hold the glock against your head

Let me help you tie the rope around your neck
Let me help to talk you the wrong way off a ledge
Let me help you hold the glock against your head
Let me help you chain the weights onto your legs
Get on the plank fuck

Dig bury me
Underneath everything that I am rearranging
Dig bury me
Underneath everything that I was slowly changing

Wish you were committing suicide
Suckin' on a motherfuckin' tailpipe
Dead man hangin' from a tightrope
Limbless in the middle of a channel
Bombs away

    General CommentIf you had read that post with some care you would have noticed that I did not compare Mudvayne to Limp Bizkit. I said that the second verse is about the music industry tring to mold Mudvayne into a band like Limp Bizkit, trying to make them a commerical band to rake in the cash. I did not and would not compare Mudvayne to Limp Bizkit at all, it's just unthinkable!

    General CommentI hate the term 'nu-metal', especially since Mudvayne was around before that term was ever created. Anyway, I'm a big fan of this band. They stay true to themselves, and that's admirable in these dark days of mostly manufactured mainstream music.

    General CommentAlright you guys are reading way too far into the "assisted suicide" part. I love Mudvayne, but all their really saying is they want this person to go the fuck away and die while their at it!

    General Commentbadass song. Also means there is someone who hates life and wants to die and they are bringing another person down with them. So this person actually wants them to die. Hence the assisted suicide part.

    General CommentMy perception of this song is heavily influenced by events that have happened to me, but this is what I have to say:
    I think it's about how sometimes, you just want to be who you are, but people view that as "inappropriate" or "unacceptable" and then they try to change you; not realizing that it's impossible for a person's true self to change without them wanting it to. Being a goth, I've faced a lot of that at school.But that second verse is definately about the media, I agree with yall on that one. That whole suicide(or rather assisted suicide) part in the middle is really cool, but I still cant figure out what it has to do with the rest of the song.

    General Commentshifty, i think the assisted suicide portion in the middle is being sung from the point of view of someone tryin to change mudvayne, like say a critic. kud is simply using this satyrically to represent what they really mean when they tell u what u want to hear, in this case, theyll ruin u, help u kill yurself career-wise, and then dig and bury u in the remains, leaving u forgotten.

    General CommentWell, I'm not so sure bout all the profound qualities of the lyrics. I just know that this is the best nu-metal (hate that) song I've heard in a while. Guaranteed to get your blood boiling on a shitty day and to piss off those fuckin' neighbours.

    General CommentI belive it is basically saying, don't f*** with me and don't try to change me, go to hell and die.

    General Commenti think what mudvayne is trying to say is that there is always some one complaining. people like to be original, think their own thoughts and act their own way. But what society doesn't realize is that everyone is original - just doesn't express it to the credibilty of other people. i think it's "unhealthy" per say, to try to fit in with other people. i don't understand why someone would want to do that. everyone has their own mind to think and feel what they please. as long as your not doing something to interferre with someone else's emotions, then you're fine. but whoever mudvayne is talkin about; getting someone to committ suicide to, their not trying to kill them.. their letting whoever that person is make their own thoughts and mistakes, but letting that person realize that it doesn't matter - that they'll be there to help you do it.
