Incubus Dig Lyrics

Last updated: 02/21/2014 06:27:01 AM

We all have a weakness
But some of ours are easy to identify.
Look me in the eye
and ask for forgiveness;
We'll make a pact to never speak that word again.
Yes, you are my friend.

We all have something that digs at us.
At least we dig each other.
So when weakness turns my ego up
I know you'll count on the me from yesterday.

If I turn into another,
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song!
Remind me that we'll always have each other
When everything else is gone.

We all have a sickness
That cleverly attaches and multiplies
No matter how we try.

We all have someone that digs at us.
At least we dig each other.
So when sickness turns my ego up
I know you'll act as a clever medicine.

If I turn into another,
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song!
Remind me that we'll always have each other
When everything else is gone.

Oh, each other
When everything else is gone.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ohh
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh

If I turn into another,
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song!
Remind me that we'll always have each other
When everything else is gone.

Oh, each other
When everything else is gone.

Oh, each other
When everything else is gone.

You can also get your lover back with the help of Therapist Oniha | Reviewer: brutus | 11/25/12


My boyfriend and I were happy as far as I could tell and I never thought that we would break up. When his cousin died in a tragic car accident he went back to us for a week to be with his family. I could not go because I was in the middle of entertaining out of town clients for work. He did not seem to be upset that I could not go so I let him be. The next thing that I know, he reconnected with an old friend from high school that he had a crush on years ago and they started to have an affair again! I had no clue what was going on until a month after he came back to us .He proceeded to see both her and I until I caught him testing her one night. I confronted him and he told me the truth about what happened. We broke up and went our separate ways. Neither of us fought for our relationship. I was angry and decided not to be upset about it and just keep it moving. Then after about a month of not speaking to him I became sad. I wanted him to tell me that he wanted to be with me and not her. I contacted Therapist Oniha from winexbackspell@gmail.com for a love spell and he totally helped me! he was able to get him to miss me to where he wanted to get back together again. He had a lot of regrets and felt bad for not fighting to keep me and for cheating in general. He values our relationship so much more now and we are together now!

how i can relate to song.. | Reviewer: digger | 11/24/12

for me this song is about a group of friends who've been together for a very very long time.. like childhood buddies maybe, or better yet, a rock band... the INCUBUS band perhaps... i think what INCUBUS is telling us in this song is the kind of bond that they share for one another, the way they treat each other as friends and as a family... i also think that, this song is reminder of how they stayed intact as a band for years of making great music... and up to this date, i bet they still DIG each other up when one of them turns in to another.. cause with all the weakness and sickness that attaches to them and multiplies.. one of them will act as a clever medicine.. and so that they will be reminded, that all they have is each other, when everything else is gone... (shout out to all INCUBUS fans, "Yes you are my Friend!")

Inspiring | Reviewer: eve | 10/28/11

This song is AMAZING!When i heard this song for the first time i kept thinking of what it meant to me,and what it meant is that we need someone do dig us up,we need someone in our lives to discover that hidden side of us,and uncover who we really are,it doesn't matter if it's a lover,a friend or a family member.we just need somebody that digs our true identity up,and that's what it meant to me.but that's just my opinion!

Sounds like a love song... | Reviewer: Krystle | 9/14/11

If you watch the video for the song, it's clearly about love. There's a guy locked up in a tree with a broken heart and while she's digging him out, he's slowly changing into a better person and his battered heart goes back into his chest (like he's alive again)...she dug him up from the past he was stuck in showed him that life goes on after a broken heart..

love it | Reviewer: Kaitlyn | 4/18/11

I absolutely love this song..to me this song could mean a lot of things, including pretty much everyones main opinion, the love aspect.
I see it that way but also I see it from a sort of friend and family perspective, especially with the lines "remind me we'll always have each other, when everything else is gone"
I think I may get that as one of my next tattoos. since song lyrics greatly impact me and I relate to them, most of mine are song lyrics, and I think ill get those lines as a tribute to my closest friends and family who have always been there for me :)

We danced to this | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/17/11

My husband and I had this as our first dance at our wedding reception. Then when pregnant with our first child we were able to see Incubus in concert. This song will always have a special place in my heart

help a poor soul | Reviewer: Dan Swift | 12/12/10

im currently in a love bind and i dont know wat i want. there are 2 girls that "dig" at me and one's three yrs older (that matters when ur only 16) and the other is my ex. we dated 3 times already and she has me teetering on a 4th. while i was single, (which i still am) i met the other girl. she's in a relationship of 4 yrs. with her bf and as bad as i feel about getting in the way of that (cuz im definitely on her mind) i just think she deserves me more than my ex. she dumped me and had her chances. but when i think about the other girl i instantly feel guilty cuz i want my ex back. im so stuck and dont know wat i want-the safe bet goin back to my ex again, or waitin for the other girl to come around. i know neither sounds great and i sound like a bitch, but its gonna be one or the other-and soon! if anyone reads this and feels like they can help at all, please im done wishin 4 this and that, i want something, just wish i knew wat..........

love this song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/3/10

u can take this song a # of ways...if u wanna 'dig' deeper and debate if its about love or drugs or forgiveness or whatever...does it matter? shouldnt it be about how the song makes you, as an individual, feel? the beauty of art (this song is art) is that its open to interpretation. personally this song reminds me of my husband and keeping him grounded thru his rap career as well as the connection we have. 'at least we dig eachother' 'remind me that we'll always have eachother when everyone else is gone' sums it up perfectly. despite the flaws we dig eachother. people drop in and out of lives but to know it'll always be me and him...and its proven true over the last year.....its wonderful and this song is a perfect fit. take it how u want...to each his own!

Finding more from dirt | Reviewer: Janett | 10/27/10

Well im not only a fan of Incubus<3 but i know the deeper truth of this song.I've expirenced having someone that means so much and helped me, dug me out from all the shit going on.She not only loved me for who i was as i did back but she recited to me the lyrics "Remind me that we'll always have each other
When everything else is gone" and that to me made me feel like i could always have her there. We went throught things that most people don't like about drug's and depression and shit, but she was there and this song will always remind me of that moment in time. This song is about finding the inner person threw all the shit and excepting them and being there.
It makes a difference

Lyrical Digging | Reviewer: Clementyne | 4/29/10


The song “Dig” by Incubus is about digging through to a person who’s lost themselves in a busy, degenerate world. The song implies that with the help of another, we can renew the good in a person, the better side. “If I turn into another, Dig me up from under what is covering, The better part of me, Sing this song, Remind me that we'll always have each other, When everything else is gone.” (Incubus) The verses refer to the pressures, sins, and corruptions of this world to be “weaknesses” and “sicknesses”. We can always count on a true friend to pull us out of the rubble when we stumble and fall. The song indicates that we will always have each other, “Remind me that we'll always have each other, When everything else is gone.” (Incubus) Perhaps, when everything else is gone means when the world has sucked you in and then spit you out feeling hollow and alone. In the end we will always have that friend there to help us through the rough times.

The entire song is metaphorical. The writer first describes the immoralities of this world to be “sicknesses” or “weaknesses”. The title of the song “Dig” is a reference to digging through a persons soul to find the greater good when we find ourselves in the darkest of trials. The writer once refers to the friend as a “clever medicine” when the “sickness” invades. The writer also mentions, “Dig me up from under what is covering the better part of me.” which speaks about some sort of mask, or when we think of digging literally, we usually think of dirt, which would represent the filth of our world. Dig us out of the filth of this world which is covering the better part of us.

dig | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/29/10

This song makes me think of one thing; my ex. Maybe because it was constantly playing in his car when we were driving around, but it's also the lyrics and the just the song itself. I hate to say this because I really do love my current bf, but everytime I hear this song I can't help but think of the memories of him.

I feel like it is my weakness and he'll always be that person that digs and gets to me.

deep down | Reviewer: almightyone | 3/30/10

This s the relationship between heaven and hell, good and evil God and theDdevil. Seperate and as one. When everyone else is gone, there will only be the one left. Did you ever see the movie sunshine. it is pure sadness. mans inhumanity to man, or any beings for that matter. maybe they can all learn to get along and be as one

i dig lol | Reviewer: julien | 1/21/10

I read and liked alot of wat ppl said about this song, but i truly feel like in the first verse he's talking about drugs in 2 different ways as in this drug is my friend and when it turns my ego up u can count on the me from yesterday cuz im gonna get u again 2maro. or that a friend of his is trying to let him kno he needs 2 quit but he wants him 2 never bring it back up after that. and that we kno this drug is getting to them but atleast we're still cool, and when this drug gets me high just kno that u can still count on me jus like u did yesterday. and in the second verse, he's talking about girls and how they can get 2 him cuz they throw themselves at him. but atleast i have u and not them, but when these girls get to me i kno i can trust u 2 bring me back from that mind-state.

hope ? | Reviewer: grey | 1/6/10

It seems like we tend to lean on things that make us comfortable. We being humanity, but why does everything have to be consistent with some other person? listening to this song has helped push me a little bit more to ponder that question. Maybe it has to do with the need to connect with people, feel accepted I still have not concluded for myself and I am far from it. Anyway this song is well crafted and continues to influence my perception on a "needed" connection between another individual. I consider it to be an ideal situation for the common individual to have someone who keeps "a person's real self" in check; however I have not come across this experience yet and therefore do not consider it plausible. With that said the song has a phenominal tone to it and makes me still have a tad bit of hope to come across such an experience!

dig | Reviewer: Alfred | 1/4/10

dig is about fame, and the malevolence that comes with it. When ego is affected. In my mind the song is a plea to others in the band, or perhaps a true friend or lover, to keep the singer (brandon) in check during an explosive growth in popularity and fame. Fame must be a tremendous drug that can overcome one's persona and distort it. I dont think it's about love or companionship, but about maintaining equilibriuum within the band and each others lives as success is achieved.
