The Hole Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

A friend of mine bought himself a shovel
Said, "I'm gonna tunnel me a mine"
He set out to be a rich man
Happiness is what he thought he'd fine

Got in to deep to see the diamond
Down to dark to see the gold
Now he won't let go of the shovel
And he can't dig out of the hole

Deeper and deeper he's going down
Driving his future right into the ground
He thinks he's closer the further he goes
But he's still on the bottom
And he can't dig out of the hole

I tried to throw the man a life line
I tried to send him down a rope
I don't think he hears me calling
But everyday I pray and hope

Somehow he finally gets the message
Every spade of dirt he throws
Only gets him closer to the devil
And he can't dig out of the hole

Deeper and deeper he's going down
Driving his future right into the ground
He thinks he's closer the further he goes
But he's still on the bottom
And he can't dig out of the hole

Maybe we could learn a little lesson
Maybe this'll shine a little light
'Cause there's no healthy way to mess with
The line between wrong and right

Use the one chance you've been given
'Cause once your in the ground and cold
It's too late to start livin'?
You see you can't dig out of the hole

Deeper and deeper he's going down
Driving his future right into the ground
He thinks he's closer the further he goes
But he's still on the bottom
And he can't dig out of the hole

It's hell on the bottom
And you can't dig out of the hole
