Diggin' an early grave (Duke Special)

I burned easily since I was a boy Opened my skin to the darkest of joys I’m asking for help ‘Cause I can’t help myself And now I’m diggin’, diggin’ an early grave I’ve forgotten how to be myself Keep my courage boxed up on a shelf Why is everything I want Always something I can’t have? So I’m diggin’, diggin’ an early grave Diggin’, diggin’, diggin’ an early grave Down I fell through a hole in the stairs Crashing through hallways and old armchairs It’s hard to hold on to things When you keep on falling Now I’m diggin’, diggin’, an early grave Diggin’, diggin’, diggin’ an early grave.
