Lyrics

Tyketto - Dig In Deep

FAITHLESS

Uncertain, unwilling
Unbroken he marches on
High tension, high wires
All fail-safes have been withdrawn
Walk with your fear tucked down
Deep in your pockets
The shadows they all know your name
Time the avenger it will play no favorites
The ending is always the same

Rising, Falling
My last breath is calling me
Back from the edge
I am faithless
Falling, rising
Now realizing
I'll not pass this way again

No angels, No evils
No blood falls on empty hands
All choices, all actions
Come back to us where we stand
Up off your knees
There is freedom from bondage
Nothing needs worship to be
Eyes to the sky
I look into the stars and
The stars they look back into me

Rising, Falling
My last breath is calling me
Back from the edge
I am faithless
Falling, rising
Now realizing
I'll not pass this way again

I look for you in everything I see
I reach for you in my love and villainy
I question everything that I've been told
Like a bolt from the blue

Rising, Falling
My last breath is calling me
Back from the edge
I am faithless
Falling, rising
Now realizing
I'll not pass this way again



LOVE TO LOVE
(written with Brooke St. James)


Are you running from the thunder?
Are you dancing in the rain?
Are you strong enough to bare your soul?
Would you just as soon refrain?
Do you blame it on your nature?
Do you listen when you lie?
Do you like it when you suffer?
Is that at the heart of your disguise?

Do all you can for another
Reach out your hand for a brother
One love to love and no other
All in time, fall in line
Leave it all behind

Is there an end to your addictions?
A beginning to this end
Give a name to all your problems
That will slow you down time and again
Well I've broken all my mirrors
Scattered shards into the air
I don't glance into those pieces
'Cause I know the face that I'll find looking there

Do all you can for another
Reach out your hand for a brother
One love to love and no other
All in time, fall in line
Leave it all behind

Are you sleeping through your daylight?
Do you travel in your sleep?
Is it you that is dissatisfied
Or the company you keep?
Did I catch you at a bad time?
What were you thinking of?
Was it me that took your fancy
Or is it love that you love to love to love?

Do all you can for another
Reach out your hand for a brother
One love to love and no other
All in time, fall in line
All in time, fall in line
Leave it all behind



HERE’S HOPING IT HURTS

I can’t deny it
I could make a living
Out of learning the hard way
My eyes are opened
I suffer no illusions
About our social interplay

I thought those days were behind me
How did you find me, blind me
And shoot me all to pieces again

Here’s to saying goodbye
Here’s mud in your eye
Here’s to making things worse
Here’s hoping it hurts
There’s no way to be kind
Love is deaf, dumb and blind
I’ll get my licks in first
Here’s hoping it hurts

You were so cool
Ice, it wouldn’t melt in your mouth
You got your quota of souls to fill
You gave your word
That’s about as good as a
Newly minted three dollar bill

I took my eyes off the road
And what do you know? There you go
Got your hands stuck in the till again

Here’s to saying good bye
Here’s mud in your eye
Here’s to losing our shirts
Here’s hoping it hurts
Here’s to you in the ground
Bitter drinks all around
Lawyers do your worst
Here’s hoping it hurts

When you’re adding my breakdown
Into your resume
Just hope you don’t meet me
In some dark alleyway

I’ll keep on praying your karma’s
A seven alarmer drama
That drags you back to hell again

Here’s hoping it hurts
Here’s to saying good bye
Here’s mud in your eye
Here’s to losing our shirts
Here’s hoping it hurts
Here’s to putting you down
What goes around comes around
Here’s to lifting this curse
Here’s hoping it hurts
Here's hoping it hurts
Here's hoping it hurts



BATTLE LINES

I've been into bad business
I've been out of my mind
I've been playing in traffic
I've been suffering in kind
I've been out in bad weather
A cause for concern
In the art of surrender
I've got so much to learn

Oh I know I should reach out from my confines
These battle lines
But finding the words is as hard
As finding the time

(Battle Lines)
I keep fighting all the hurt I've felt
(Battle lines)
I keep saying I don't need your help
Everybody else knows
I'm only keeping secrets from myself

I've been drawn to disaster
A willing volunteer
I've been brought to a standstill
By a burgeoning year
Got a bleak mental palette
But I paint what I see
I've been handing out secrets
Of the landscape in me

Oh I don't know when I
Drew up these battle lines
My confines
I play the part of the prisoner
And the jailer combined

(Battle Lines)
I keep fighting all the hurt I've felt
(Battle lines)
I keep saying I don't need your help
Everybody else knows
I'm only keeping secrets from myself

Alone in a lover's twilight
With my doubts to keep me warm
Watching for a ray of sunlight
To make it all transform
It will in time

Oh I know I should reach out from my confines
These battle lines
But finding the words is as hard
As finding the time

(Battle Lines)
I keep fighting all the hurt I've felt
(Battle lines)
I keep saying I don't need your help
Everybody else knows
I'm only keeping secrets from myself

(Battle Lines)
I keep fighting all the hurt I've felt
(Battle lines)
I keep saying I don't need your help
Everybody else knows
I'm only keeping secrets from myself



THE FIGHT LEFT IN ME

In the time I've got to go
With the choices I have left
I may be poorly but I'm the captain of my soul
I walk this world with no regrets

But if I'm gonna fall, I'll fall on higher ground
And if I'm gonna lose, I'll go down swingin'
In the closing moments, the defining round
You are all gonna see the fight left in me

I know better than to care
And I care enough to know
That if they have their way
They will strip your spirit bare
That's not the way I plan to go

But if I'm gonna fall, I'll fall on higher ground
And if I'm gonna lose, I'll go down swingin'
In the closing moments, the defining round
You are all gonna see the fight left in me

There is no common ground
There is no foreign soil
Give a man water and he'll do his best to drown
Runs out of water give him oil

But if I'm gonna fall, I'll fall on higher ground
And if I'm gonna lose, I'll go down swingin'
In the closing moments, the defining round
You are all gonna see

But if I'm gonna fall, I'll fall on higher ground
And if I'm gonna lose, I'll go down singin'
When I'm bruised and battered
And I've gone to ground
You are all gonna see the fight left in me



EVAPORATE
(Lyrics by Brooke St James. I helped a little)

Sitting home
All alone
Catch your bitching
On the phone
Take this cup
I'm full up
Wring me out
Hang it up

Is there anybody that feels the way I do?

Baby, I think I might evaporate
You're constant and you're killing
And I can't relate

What you need
I can't give
Not my life
For me to live
You were right
All along
It's the world
That's got it wrong

Is there anybody that feels the way I do?
Feels the way I do

Baby, I think I might evaporate
Fall apart and watch my love just dissipate
Baby, I think I might evaporate
Tried to reach you but all I do is aggravate
Finding the time
To keep you entertained
Not enough hours in the day
I'm slipping away

Baby, I think I might evaporate
Vaporize me
Save myself before it's too late
Baby, I think I might evaporate
Love should heal but all yours does is devastate
Baby, I think I might evaporate
Your constant and you're killing
Always in my face
Baby, I think I might evaporate

Evaporate
Evaporate
Evaporate
Evaporate



MONDAY

Trish, she was a writer
’Til a stranger came her way
Said he’d stay to be the father
And he was gone the next day
Seems like an awful lot of years got written for her

Harry’s up in college
With loans to be repaid
Trying to live up to expectations
And the promises he’d made
Sometimes it feels like a losing battle

No one knows what good will come
From all this struggling that we’ve done
Sometimes less is so much more
Tell me, what’s it all for?

All I need is your arms around me
All I want is a smile to light my way
Help me forget today is Monday

Me, I like to worry
’Cause worrying’s for free
I put my head under the covers
And wonder what’s come over me
I’ll stay here til this whole damn thing blows over

Will your job be here tomorrow?
Will they sell it for a song?
Will you be a good investment
’Til something better comes along?
All my friends are living in a state of frenzy

Then it hits me like a shot
I don’t need what I haven’t got
Once put away my childish things
Now I’m getting them out again
All I need is your arms around me
All I want is a smile to light my way
Help me forget today is Monday
All I want is to keep things simple
All I need is a reason to believe
Help me forget today....

Fair winds, calm seas
Cool earth, warm breeze
Bright sun, tall trees

All I need is your arms around me
All I want is a smile to light my way
Help me forget today is Monday
All I want is your arms around me
A warm, soft place to lay my head
Help me forget today is Monday
All I want is to keep things simple
All I need is a reason to believe
Help me forget today is Monday



DIG IN DEEP

When you gonna get up that mountain?
The one that stares you right in the face
Day by day you've been counting
Think you better pick up the pace
What's it gonna take to get moving?
Are you running out of demons to blame?
There's a lot of dirt needs removing
If you're gonna get back in the game

Ain't it time you picked up those pieces?
Ain't it time you buried the bones?
Work it til your power increases
Ain't it time your cover was blown?
What you go to gain by waiting?
Aint nobody holding you down
A little trouble is so liberating
And there's plenty of that to go round

All that glitters is not gold
Sometimes the dirty stuff
Is what you get to hold

Dig in deep you can get up that mountain
Digging out to leave the past behind
Breaking ground you got to dig your heels in
Dig in deep you don't know what you'll find

Ain't you been burning daylight?
Ain't you done nothing at all?
Playing it safe, it don't feel right
Ain't it time you carried the ball?
Where you gonna go with that puss on?
Who you think you're gonna impress?
Gonna come a time when it's all gone
Ain't nobody gonna give a shit less

Work that seam until it shines
What you don't need you just
Drop and leave behind

Dig in deep you can get up that mountain
Digging out to leave the past behind
Breaking ground you got to dig your heels in
Dig in deep you don't know what you'll find

All the glitters is not gold
Sometimes the dirty stuff
Is all you get to hold

Dig in deep you can get up that mountain
Digging out to leave the past behind
Breaking ground you got to dig your heels in
Dig in deep you don't know what you'll find



SOUND OFF

Money changes hands
Money changes minds
Money takes command
Makes and breaks our lives
You can buy the world
Sell it for a song
Money makes the world go wrong

Sound Off: At those cavaliers
Who sold us all their bitches brew
Sound Off: At the financiers
Who took it all and bonuses too
We're not gonna let you
Beat the check for this one too
Sound Off

Music touches hearts
Music changes lives
Music gives us strength
The power to survive
Money gets involved
Where it does not belong
Money makes it all go wrong

Sound Off: At your radio
I don't wanna swallow what you're feeding me
Sound Off: At those tv shows
Formulated and talent free
What's it gonna be?
We'll get the crap we're paying for
Unless we sound off

If I have to listen
To one more sorry whining little girl
If I have to listen
To one more lame ass gangster
Shooting up the world
Is it any wonder that I'm reaching for the plug?
Pulling out the rug
I will do anything to turn that sound off

Sound Off: At those glory hounds
Wanna be iconoclasts
Sound Off: When their voices sound
Auto tuned to make their 15 minutes last
Put em in the past
Take control and turn the sound off
Sound off

Sound Off: Like you got a pair
We're not gonna swallow what you're handing out
Sound Off: At those billionaires
Never gonna get it unless we kick and shout
What's it all about?
Flip the switch and turn that
Sound Off



LET THIS ONE SLIDE

I knew a man who got mad at a volcano
He had a meeting and it got right in his way
Worked himself up
Til they heard something in his head blow
The doctor's say he might get home someday

He lived his whole damned life flat out and medicated
Man on a mission to own everything
He fell to pieces being hyper motivated
I wonder now if he might change some things

You can spend your time complaining bout the weather
You can waste away planning for whenever
You can spend all day shouting at the road
Or let it take you where it goes

This time I'm gonna think things over
I think I might let this one slide
Let go the reins enjoy the ride

I got to wonder what it is that really matters?
What are we aiming for, what do we win?
If we should gain the world
But leave ourselves in tatters
You can't go back and try all over again

You might think that time doesn't do you any favors
You might think that life needs to learn to behave
But I hope you'll find what you want it doesn't matter
It's what you do that is your saving grace
This time I'm gonna think things over
I think I might let this one slide
Let go the reins enjoy the ride

Can you make amends?
Can you make the time?
Can you pretend this is the last day of your life?

You can spend your time complaining bout the weather
You can waste away planning for whenever
You can spend all day shouting at the road

This time I'm gonna think things over
I think I might let this one slide
Let go the reins enjoy the ride



THIS IS HOW WE SAY GOODBYE

He was a child of the Black Hills
He was restless, he was wild
And the blaze that was his life would not burn long
Until he found his perfect other
That made him sing inside
He remembered all the words to sacred songs
The road was hard
He wore its scars
He laughed with pride and lord, he stood so tall
He said, “Family is what matters most of all”

I hear your voice
I see your smile
I’m gonna bring your spirit to me for a while
And so it goes
The years they fly
This is how we say goodbye

She was a child of Little Italy
A princess shining bright
She would sing and dance
By one and all she was adored
At sixteen she met the man
That she would love for all her life
And wait for him to come back from the war
And children came
The love remained
Through all the joys and storms the fates could call
She said, “Family is what matters most of all”

I hear your voice
I see your smile
I’m gonna bring your spirit to me for a while
And so it goes
The years they fly
This is how we say goodbye

But every life goes on
Inside those that remain
And every dream comes home to rest
There’s no need to hide
From sorrow or from pain
They help me to remember you best

And so they met on one unlikely day
The Princess and the Brave
The time it took to share some coffee
Was so small
Yet they knew each other’s wisdom songs
From a million miles away
They said, “Family is what matters most of all”

I hear your voice
I see your smile
I’m gonna bring your spirit to me for a while
And so it goes
The years they fly
This is how we say goodbye
This is how we say goodbye
