lyrics

Music & Lyrics by Andrew Joslyn (BMI)
There’s a black hole, where a home used to be
smoke covered all that was left to see
everything in the neighborhood was sucked right in
into this mine with cigarette skin
Burn Burn, it all will burn
It doesn’t matter how much you earn.
nothings going to cover your love or your grief
another agent or an undercover thief?

we're coal miners, digging through the past of our lives
coal miners, picking through the charred remains
so tell me, how much my life is worth
from this little piece of blackened dirt?

Day in, day out, we dig
Picking up the bits, and labeling
Workers come in and robbers ride out
Scam after scam without a doubt

The canary’s in the coalmine and then goes the cat
few hours time now neither come back
The only real angel that was there that day
removed the carcass, and drove away

Now we're coal miners, digging through the past of our lives
coal miners, picking through the charred remains
so tell me, how much my life is worth
from this little piece of blackened dirt?

Digging through the past of our lives
Picking through the charred remains
so tell me, how much a life is worth
from a little piece of blackened dirt? X2
