about

The second track off the Andy the Doorbum Double LP "The Man Killed The Bird, And With The Bird He Killed The Song, And With The Song, Himself."

lyrics

Look me in the eyes. Don't...Look at my arms just cause they're moving.
And please don't notice the blisters on my palms.
And don't think ill of me just cause I'm digging it for you.
I'm just doing what I have to do.

I'm just digging the ditch a little bit deeper.
And it could be a mass grave, I don't know.
See all I got's this job and working really hard at doing it.
I'm digging the ditch just a little bit deeper.

Hold hands with your family.
A man's coming down the line to shoot one of you.
And when you fall in your sister will fall, too.
Chained there to your ankle...
Still alive but silent...
Waiting for the dirt to rain down then it will be through.
And I hope she didn't think...Oh, of what I had to do.

I was just digging the ditch a little bit... Deeper.
