    Lyrics

    My days of wishful thinking
    Soldiers of sorrow sinking
    Words dance, beginning riddle
    And in the end and in the middle
    Deep will I dig, I. . .

    So here's a nickel for your time and a dollar for your dime
    Just another night of laying low
    I see a shovel in the hand of a wild-eyed man
    With a mission and a goal below
    But I don't want to, you don't want to, we don't want to know
    And forgotten are the cross, and the naked and the lost,
    And the lover of the tired and cold

    I've learned of this religion
    But I've lost my peaceful vision
    Girl ghost is in the stairway
    She likes it when I rub my eyes, and
    Deep will I dig, I. . .

    So give a smile and a cringe to the lunatic fringe
    I'm a little tired of saying so
    See the spin and the twirl of a wide-eyed girl
    Still digging for an honest soul
    But I don't want to, you don't want to, we don't want to know
    And dying on the cross for the sick and the lost
    Is the lover that I long to know

    Useless and empty, is it?
    World stupid, loveless limits
    Immune, deficient fathers
    Sick sons and dying daughters
    Deep will I dig, I. . .

    So here's a nickel for your time and a dollar for your dime
    Just another night of laying low
    I see a shovel in the hand of a wild-eyed man
    With a mission and a goal below
    But I don't want to, you don't want to, we don't want to know
    And forgotten are the cross, and the naked and the lost,
    And the lover of the tired and cold

    So give a smile and a cringe to the lunatic fringe
    I'm a little tired of saying so
    See the spin and the twirl of a wide-eyed girl
    Still digging for an honest soul
    But I don't want to, you don't want to, we don't want to know
    And dying on the cross for the sick and the lost
    Is the lover that I long to know
