Dig

Album: Light Grenades (2006)
Charted: 94
  • We all have a weakness
    But some of ours are easy to identify
    Look me in the eye
    And ask for forgiveness
    We'll make a pact to never speak that word again
    Yes, you are my friend
    We all have something that digs at us
    At least we dig each other

    So when weakness turns my ego up
    I know you'll count on the me from yesterday

    If I turn into another
    Dig me up from under what is covering
    The better part of me
    Sing this song
    Remind me that we'll always have each other
    When everything else is gone

    We all have a sickness
    That cleverly attaches and multiplies
    No matter how we try
    We all have someone that digs at us
    At least we dig each other

    So when sickness turns my ego up
    I know you'll act as a clever medicine

    If I turn into another
    Dig me up from under what is covering
    The better part of me
    Sing this song
    Remind me that we'll always have each other
    When everything else is gone
    Oh, each other when everything else is gone

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    If I turn into another
    Dig me up from under what is covering
    The better part of me
    Sing this song
    Remind me that we'll always have each other
    When everything else is gone
    Oh, each other when everything else is gone
    Oh, each other when everything else is gone Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER KILMORE, BRANDON CHARLES BOYD, MICHAEL AARON EINZIGER, BENJAMIN LEE KENNEY, JOSE ANTHONY PASILLAS

  • Myla from San Diego, CaOkay, can someone tell me why the ballet theme in the video?
  • Patrick from Overland Park, KsI like how Brandon uses three different meanings for the word "dig" in the lyric. This song just puts me in my happy place. Amazing song.
  • Rafael from Bogotá, Columbiawhat a great song
  • Rafael from Bogotá, Columbiaeverytime that I hear this song, I feel an undescriptible sense about what it's important in a relationship,a really nice song
  • Timmy from Mukilteo, Wathis song is about bringing out the best in others, and how a friend should help a friend if their going through hard times or doing bad things.
  • Mike from Glendale, AzI remember reading something before "light Grenades" was even released and Brandon Boyd said something about this song being "the heaviest song they've ever done" and I'm thinking "hell ya this song is rock my ass off". Then i hear it for the first time and I understand what he meant by that comment. The message about true friendship in a relationship is the "heavy" he was talking about. The music itself is gorgeous no doubt about that. I saw Incubus in Mesa in Sept. 2007 and Mike's Hendrix-like solo on this song blew my mind. I've been an Incubus fan since Fungus and "Dig" is already on my short list for favorite Incubus songs. keep up the good work guys!!
  • Courtney from Salt Lake City, UtI completely relate to this song on so many different levels. Incubus's songs are so inspirational and compassionate to me. No matter what song I hear of theirs, I can relate to it one way or another. This song reminds me of my ex boyfriend (the love of my life and soul mate.) I wish that he would have forgiven me for my mistakes and was still in my life today.
  • Desirae from Harrison, Ohwhat a great song..."we all have someone that digs at us at least we dig each other"
