Working in a Coal Mine

I haven’t been around you enough
To see the real thing
You say it’s complicated
Well I say I’m tired
Of everything
Cut my ties with this

Lost too much in the long run
I’m trying to get back,
But it’s done
And everyone has a long
Tale to tell
Well they can all…

Burn burn burn in that fire
Work work work in that factory
Jump jump jump into the pit
Of darkness
The unknown

Not that it exists
Even if it did I wouldn’t
Wish it on you
Of all people on this earth
You’re the one that makes me laugh
The most, the hardest
Belly aching, on the floor
This is rare

I should
Burn burn burn in that fire
Work work work in that factory
Jump jump jump into the pit
Of darkness
The unknown

We should
Burn burn burn in that fire
Work work work in that factory
Jump jump jump into the pit
Of darkness
The unknown

Cause as far as I can tell
Happiness can be somewhat of an
Overrated place
But as long as I’m with you
I know
It’s alright, it’s alright now

Even if that old devil gets
The best of me
You’ll see,
I’ll be right back home
Maybe a bit
Burned and torn
And utterly alone
But I’ll still be yours
Again
