  • Once there were motives but they have been lost
    Dig through the sand still you end at the rock
    This is the ditch that I dug

    These are the blankets that we should have worn
    Now marrow is soaking and taken with cold
    Us rag and bone merchants have just greed to lose
    This is the ditch that I dug

    The ditch it lies empty and waits for your laugh
    My head was your shovel and I was your back
    And sweat made the river that cut through the flat
    This is the ditch that I dug
    This is the ditch that I dug

    The crows haven't eaten the scraps they were fed
    The crows they stay honest and keep to themselves
    Their silence infected my stitches gone loose
    There will be rain today, yes
    There will be rain today
