Chinese Miners

Dark was the earth
black as the night
last I saw you
was the last of the light

We were alone
buried alive
two ways to live
only one way to die

No man’s machine
can bring us the peace
no final demands
when we’re up to our knees

There are so many things that I haven’t told you
that I wanted you to know
there's something you said that you’d show me now
were you about to show me?
Life without you is like living on the moon
without a phone inside a tomb
I’m calling for you, a mile down in the blue

Everyday passes
the death toll stands still
waiting for time
time is what kills

You are the lotus
floating in my pond
nothing can hurt you
I hold you in my heart

There are so many places I’ve dreamed about
I haven’t taken you
and there’s somewhere far inside you that
you said you’d take me to
love without you is like, sleeping on a lie
on my other side
i feel the truth
I’m looking for you, a mile down, in the blue

We’ll be united
at the end of the longest day
I’m sorry you’re scared
we went down the wrong way

I’ll never slow down
until I touch your hair
I’ll skip right into hell
If I can hold you fair and square

There are so many things that I haven’t told you
that I wanted you to know
and there’s something you said that you’d show me now
were you about to show me?
life without you is like living on the moon
without a phone inside a tomb
I’m digging for you, a mile down, in the blue
