Dig dig deep for yourself
Dig dig deep for your soul
Dig dig deep the black abyss
Dig dig deep for your own soul

What the hell's it mean?
And I said, "Hey, you're looking at me."
What the hell's it mean?

Six dead horses chase you down
Fourteen guns in your own town
Thirteen men run after you
Ten million babies your dad gave you

Like the little beast in a smokened room
sat writhing in pain all afternoon
salt from his tears bringing the blood to the surface
like dark haired fears make their way to the surface

What the hell's it mean?
And I said, "Hey, you're looking at me."
What the hell's it mean?

And you don't have to stand by me
And you don't have to stand, stand by me
And you don't have to stand, stand by me
And you don't have to stand

What the hell's it mean?
And I said, "Hey, you're looking at me."
What the hell's it mean?


Like the little beast in a smokened room
sat writhing in pain all afternoon
salt from his tears bringing the blood to the surface
like dark haired fears make their way to the surface

Just the sight of the belt makes his kids start to sting
Then one day we're feeling everything
Trees outside weather the bark on the wood
like the callous on your heart dropped place where it stood

What the hell's it mean?
And I said, "Hey, you're looking at me."
What the hell's it mean?

And you don't have to stand by me
And you don't have to stand, stand by me
And you don't have to stand, stand by me
And you don't have to stand

    General CommentActually, these are the lyrics:

    DIg dig deep
    For your self
    Dig dig deep
    FOr your soul
    Dig dig deep
    Dark black abyss
    Dig dig deep
    Bury you a soul

    What the hell's in me?
    I said, "Hey, don't look at me"
    What the hell's in me?

    Six dead horses chase you down
    Fourteen guns in your hometown
    Thirteen men run after you
    Ten million babies your dad gave you

    Like a little beast in a sparkle robe
    Sat writhing in pain all afternoon
    Salt from his tears bringing blood to the surface
    Like dark-haired fears make thier way to the surface

    What the hell's in me?
    I said, "Hey, don't look at me"
    What the hell's in me?

    And you don't have to stand
    Stand by me
    And you don't have to stand
    Stand by me
    And you don't have to stand
    Stand by me

    What the hell's in me
    I said "Hey don't look at me"
    What he hell's in me

    Like the little beast in a sparkle robe
    Sat writhing in pain all afternoon
    Salt from his tears bringing blood to the surface
    Like dark haired fears make thier way to the surface

    Just as you tie that belt
    Makes your skin start to sting
    Then one day you're feeling everything
    Trees outside weather the bark and the war
    Like a callous on your heart where a face once stood

    What the hell's in me?
    I said, "Hey, don't look at me"
    What the hell's in me?

    And you don't have to stand
    Stand by me
    And you don't have to stand
    Stand by me
    And you don't have to stand
    Stand by me

    I think the song chronicles someone who turns to drugs as a way to deal with a broken heart, becomes hopelessly addicted, and then tries to quit, and goes through withdrawl, parallelling the suffering of withdrawl with the suffering of the end of a relationship.
