We old ones, have seen two wars

When you dream of a laser that sears your soul
Slices like a razor and burns like coal (burns like a coal)
You can bet you'll forget when the rock starts to roll
And the last meets the least by the watering hole (by the watering hole)

Dig it down deep, dig it out wide
Dig it pleasure, dig it for pride
Dig it for treasure, dig it for stones
Dig it for the metal, and dig it for the bones

Dig it!

   Down down down down   down down down down down down down down

Dig it down deep, dig it out wide
Dig it pleasure, and dig it for pride
Dig it for treasure, dig it for stones
Dig it for the metal, and dig it for the bones

|Gm  F#|E   |

Dig it!

Dig for your life, dig to the death
Dig for Salvation, till your very last breath
Dig for protection, dig for release
Dig for resurrection, and dig it for peace

We old ones have seen two wars
