I was taking things for granted
I didn’t know where I was from
I didn’t know where you were going
I hadn’t seen how much you’d grown
I was thinking things were different
Better than they were before
But I knew, down deep inside
All I had was a molten core

I was thinking you would notice
All this oil in the ground
Bubbling up from down below
All the lines in this horizon

Buried deep inside the earth
Dirt in your fingernails
I should have scrubbed my hands long before
Before I ever knew how you cared
Cause we've been down this road before
And we’re a few yards short of a load
Twisting, turning and not much else
Down this dusty road

Maybe somewhere between here and there,
is how I’ll come around
There to show what we are made of
Where we’re from and where we’ll go
We’ll keep on digging, digging deep
With our shovels in the ground
With the force of a thousand cuts
Whether we are lost or found
