Track Name: Useless Eaters
Drivin' all night through the rain and the snow
Been a long time since I first hit the road
I'll sure be glad to be getting back
To my little old hand made mountains shack

Where the swallows build their nests in the eaves of the barn
Carrying mud from the creek by the farm
Packing it with feathers & love to make it warm
And my dog in his house that my babies made
Where he likes to lie when he needs a little shade
And a little scenic nook in the cliff by the glade
Where my baby used to take me to get away

What's that I see- the land is foreclosed?
Someone cleared the birds out of the barn with a hose
I'm about to go crazy, but my baby left a note
Says I know it ain't easy but we'll start over

Where the swallows build their nests in the eaves of the barn
Carrying mud from the creek by the farm
Packing it with feathers & love to make it warm
And my dog in his house that my babies made
Where he likes to lie when he needs a little shade
And a little scenic nook in the cliff by the glade
Where my baby used to take me to get away

No one matters more
There's no one the heavens adore more
Every living thing dreams the same dreams
Deserves to live and pursue its meaning
Ain't no useless eaters
We're all God's creatures
Rich or poor, the land came before
Doesn't really matter whose daddy stole more
Track Name: Dig
Every day I sit down at my desk
I answer the mail and read all the text
I dig dig dig but it doesn't stay dug.
Egyptian slaves used to carry the stones
It took a long time but the job got done
but I dig, dig dig and it doesn't stay dug.

Can't tell you how much I want to see the job done
Stick the shovel through and see the sun
But every day it's like I've only begun!

I'm spinning my wheels, the carrot's a trick
I'll never get closer and it's making me sick
I dig, dig dig but it doesn't stay dug
Bills and debt, I can't give it up
It all seems rigged like the game is corrupt
And I dig, dig dig but it doesn't stay dug

What's that I see, is it a trick of the light?
The tunnel opens up, I put my blinders aside
Praise the day I was born, I think I can fly
I ain't diggin' no more, I'm flying the sky!
