Dig deep in search of gold, and you'll find darkness when your life is sold.

The Miner

"Dig a hole!

"Dig a hole! Dig a hole!"

"Dig a hole! Dig a hole!" the naïve child sang;

dusty air eddied beneath his voice,

dusty air eddied beneath his voice, depositing its micro-layers of jaundiced tar.

then,

then, the lights dimmed.

it was all a dream in search of instant bliss

it was all a dream in search of instant bliss in the twinkling of a gold rush

so,

"Dig a hole!

"Dig a hole! Dig a hole!"

"Dig a hole! Dig a hole!" the naïve child sang.

black-faced on his descent to glory,

black-faced on his descent to glory, he swung his heavy pick at the rock

black-faced on his descent to glory, he swung his heavy pick at the rock to pry the gold out and write his story

black-faced on his descent to glory, he swung his heavy pick at the rock to pry the gold out and write his story as he wept for hours upon the clock.

with sweat laced on his dirtied skin,

with sweat laced on his dirtied skin, he trailed the blood veins of the cave;

with sweat laced on his dirtied skin, he trailed the blood veins of the cave; regret heaved in a rant from within,

with sweat laced on his dirtied skin, he trailed the blood veins of the cave; regret heaved in a rant from within, to ensure he got the gold he craved.

it was all a dream,

it was all a dream, in this gold rush;

a naïve boy seeking a way out of perpetual misery

“Dig a hole,” in the black earth,

“Dig a hole,” in the black earth, to find the gold that'd bring you mirth,

“Dig a hole,” in the black earth, to find the gold that'd bring you mirth, “Dig a hole,” and carve a pit,

“Dig a hole,” in the black earth, to find the gold that'd bring you mirth, “Dig a hole,” and carve a pit, to dwell in pity and your regretful spit.

as he lingered deep in the abyss,

as he lingered deep in the abyss, he found nothing but darkness,

as he lingered deep in the abyss, he found nothing but darkness, and the nascent corrosion whipped his soul in the turbulent air,

as he lingered deep in the abyss, he found nothing but darkness, and the nascent corrosion whipped his soul in the turbulent air, for he made his humble abode,

as he lingered deep in the abyss, he found nothing but darkness, and the nascent corrosion whipped his soul in the turbulent air, for he made his humble abode, there, for he made his humble abode, there, where no life trespasses.

as he lingered deep in the abyss, he found nothing but darkness, and the nascent corrosion whipped his soul in the turbulent air, for he made his humble abode, there, where no life trespasses.

for he made his humble abode, there, where no life trespasses.

there, where no life trespasses.
