Digging deep in the darkness, digging it deep down deep down deep down digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it deep, down deep, down, deep down digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it deep, down, down, down, down, digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it down, deep down, deep, down deep digging it

We watched an insect stray to the edge of its world
A lily pad stretched over a green mirror
In which the ghost carp swirl like clouds before a storm
This is the season of the rain
This is incoming

And when it came there was no cover, no place to hide
Vision blurred, hard to breathe, trying hard to hold onto something that's real
There's nothing left, nowhere to go, no open road, washed away by swollen streams
Carried off downriver with all my broken dreams

Digging deep in the darkness, digging it deep, down deep down deep, deep, digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it deep down, down, down, down digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it deep, digging it, digging it, digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it deep down, deep down, deep down, digging it

A tethered goat bleats from the corner of the graveyard
Where the lizards hang motionless as the angels of stone above them
Their broken wings throw long shadows into the grass where the scorpions hide
The tigers are running out of jungle

The problem is, I don't really want to go back
I can't really see any more
Just a hand

Are you happy now?
Don't know who you are
Or who I am
Or who you are

Digging deep in the darkness, digging it deep, down deep, down deep, deep digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it deep, down, down, down, down, digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it deep, deep down, deep, deep, deep, digging it
Deep in the darkness, down, down, down, down, down, down digging it

In the end I was tired of being asked if I could say that I was happy now
As if you need me to convince you that everything's OK
Would you take me back?

Are you happy now?
Am I sure, are you sure
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?

Tell me are you happy now?
Tell me are you happy now?
Yeah yeah, are you happy now?
Came your heart, are you happy now?
Happy now?
