about

The last SongFight entry on this album, cleaned up and submitted for your approval. I have a weird fixation with ants that goes back to when I was in 5th grade, and I used to play SimAnt on my family's old Mac LC pretty religiously. I developed an interest in real ants from playing the game, and started collecting them and trying to start little ant colonies in pots of dirt in the backyard. Seeing as how I was already a gawky, nerdy little kid with glasses who hated playing sports and preferred the vocal styling of guys like Little Richard and Frankie Lymon over the caterwauling of Kurt Cobain, you can imagine how much this hobby did to further endear me to my classmates. A girl, whose name I don't remember, signed my yearbook that year. "Ant boy, stay weird" she wrote. Well, if you're out there, mystery girl, I'm sure you'll be glad to know that I have.

lyrics

lyrics:

Dug myself a hole
Hide me from the rain
Rest my tired legs
And my addled brain

Trail was washed away
And I cannot see
Friends are far ahead
Think they've forgotten me

So I'm digging down

Spider overhead
Where I used to be
I'm listening to her
She's listening to me

I'll stay where I am
Safe here in the ground
Deep inside the earth
Where I won't be found

So I keep digging down

I'm deeper down
Than I've ever been
Don't think that I want
To see the light again

But I must go back
Back to my home
Cause the Earth is cold
When you're all alone

Now I'm digging out
