about

When you feel left out in the cold.

lyrics

Dig in friends
Dig your heels
Big split ends
Big shit feels
You built a house
Of clay and stone
You built four walls
You call it home
You built a fragile
House of bones
You named it dawn
All on your own
Dig in the dirt
One foundation
Divide me out
Of the equation

Verse two changes
All the rules
You left your home
You Goddamn fool
You give up safety
Give up rest
To play the role
Less fortunate
You didn't want
Sedentary
You didn't want
To set down roots
You didn't ask
For habitation
Like it or not
We're in cahoots

Clean the mess
The fucking mess you made
Walking away
Is no escape
What will you achieve
Far away from me?
Why would you make me
The reason you leave?

Dig this beat
I made it scratch
It's six chords plus
A ride and splash
I close my eyes
It takes me home
I can't forget
The dulcet tone
Dig these words
Not too deep
A time capsule
Digital keep
Maybe a
Millennium
Suns will fill
The sounds again

Fourth verse
Same as the first
But dig in harder
Til you burst
You built a house
Of expectations
Disappointed
In your creation
Anarchy
In Canada
Solidarity
And peace
We built a home
On stolen land
Now it's time
To pay the lease

Clean the mess
The fucking mess you made
Walking away
Is no escape
What will you achieve
Far away from me?
Why would you make me
The reason you leave?

Dig in friends
Dig your heels
Big split ends
Big shit feels
You built a house
Of clay and dust
Just because
You must, you must
You built a tender
Heart of gold
You named it after
Your own soul
Dig in your heels
You stubborn beast
You wouldn't want
To see me leave

Clean the mess
The fucking mess you made
Walking away
Is no escape
What will you achieve
Far away from me?
Why would you make me
The reason you leave?
