Digging deep in the darkness, digging it deep down deep down deep down digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it deep, down deep, down, deep down digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it deep, down, down, down, down, digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it down, deep down, deep, down deep digging it

We watched an insect stray to the edge of its world
A lily pad stretched over a green mirror
In which the ghost carp swirl like clouds before a storm
This is the season of the rain
This is incoming

And when it came there was no cover, no place to hide
Vision blurred, hard to breathe, trying hard to hold onto something that's real
There's nothing left, nowhere to go, no open road, washed away by swollen streams
Carried off downriver with all my broken dreams

Digging deep in the darkness, digging it deep, down deep down deep, deep, digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it deep down, down, down, down digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it deep, digging it, digging it, digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it deep down, deep down, deep down, digging it

A tethered goat bleats from the corner of the graveyard
Where the lizards hang motionless as the angels of stone above them
Their broken wings throw long shadows into the grass where the scorpions hide
The tigers are running out of jungle

The problem is, I don't really want to go back
I can't really see any more
Just a hand

Are you happy now?
Don't know who you are
Or who I am
Or who you are

Digging deep in the darkness, digging it deep, down deep, down deep, deep digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it deep, down, down, down, down, digging it
Deep in the darkness, digging it deep, deep down, deep, deep, deep, digging it
Deep in the darkness, down, down, down, down, down, down digging it

In the end I was tired of being asked if I could say that I was happy now
As if you need me to convince you that everything's OK
Would you take me back?

Are you happy now?
Am I sure, are you sure
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?

Tell me are you happy now?
Tell me are you happy now?
Yeah yeah, are you happy now?
Came your heart, are you happy now?
Happy now?
...

Live 1999

Digging deep in the darkness
Digging it deep
Down deep down deep down digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it deep
Down deep down deep down digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it deep
Down deep down deep down digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it deep
Down deep down deep down digging it

We watched an insect stray to the edge of its world
A lily pad stretched over a green mirror
Where the ghost carp swirl like clouds before a storm
This is the season of the rain
This is incoming

When it came
There was no cover, no place to hide
Vision blurred, hard to breathe
Trying hard to hold onto something that's real
There's nothing left, nowhere to go, no open road
Washed away by swollen streams
Carried off downriver
With all my broken dreams

Digging deep in the darkness
Digging it deep
Down deep down deep down digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it deep
Down deep down deep down digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it deep
Digging it
Digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it deep
Down deep down deep down digging it

A tethered goat bleats from the corner of a graveyard
Where the lizards hang motionless as the angels of stone above them
Their broken wings cast long shadows into the grass where the scorpions hide
The tigers are running out of jungle

(Words in Polish)

There comes a point
Where you're staring over a precipice
And it's absolute blind darkness
And it was when I reached that point
I decided to take
One step back

Digging

Are you happy now?
(Don't know who you are)
Don't know who I am
(Or who you are)

Digging deep in the darkness
Digging it deep
Down deep down deep deep digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it deep
Down down down down digging it
Deep in the darkness
Digging it deep
Down deep down deep deep digging it
Deep in the darkness
Down down down down down down digging it

In the end I was tired of being asked if I was happy now
As if you need me to convince you that everything's okay
So would you take me back?
Would you take me back?
You keep asking
You keep asking
(You keep asking)
Tell me are you happy now?
(Tell me are you happy now?)
Tell me are you happy now?
(Asking are you happy now?)
Asking asking
(Asking asking)
Are you happy now?
(Are you happy now?)
Are you happy now?
(Are you happy now?)
Tell me are you happy now?
Tell me are you happy now?
Are you happy now happy now
Happy now happy now
Happy now
(I just want to know)
Happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy now
(I just want to know)
(I just want to know)
(Tell me are you happy now?)
(Happy now)
(Tell me are you happy now?)
(Are you happy now?)
(I want to know)
(I just want to know)
(Are you happy now?)
(Happy now)
(I just want to know)
(Are you happy now?)
(You, are you happy now?)
(I want to know)
