  • Like a shotgun in a fist fight
    Like a murder in the daylight
    I'm the poison in the lead pipes
    Open me up and watch the dogs fight, dogs fight
    My angel's in a headlock
    And I'm dropping bombs from the rooftops
    I ain't waiting on the world to wake up
    Oh, you never need luck when you don't stop, don't stop

    My new year's resolution, yeah
    To choke out my illusions, yeah
    To cut through the confusion, yeah
    Oh, keep on digging deep, keep digging deep
    Keep digging deep, we keep digging

    We don't stop
    We don't stop
    Yeah, we don't stop
    Oh, keep on digging deep, keep digging deep
    Keep digging

    The ball drops
    Start ticking to a new clock
    Get back up and take another shot
    Oh, pour the hard liquor and get up, get up, oh yeah

    My new year's resolution, yeah
    Is to choke out my illusions, yeah
    And cut through the confusion, yeah
    Oh, keep on digging deep, keep digging deep
    Keep digging deep, keep digging

    We don't stop
    We don't stop
    Yeah, we don't stop
    Oh, keep on digging deep, keep digging deep
    Keep digging

    I give the side eye to the soundbites
    Pumping stock lies, saying shit don't stink
    Touch a hot nerve when I prefer to think first
    And turn down Jonestown drinks
    Five senses and a brain to move me
    Five ways that they can never use me
    I got the fire, I got control
    I got the fire, I got control

    Five senses and a brain to move me (control)
    Five senses and a brain to move me (control)
    Five senses and a brain to move me (control)

    My new year's resolution, yeah
    To choke out my illusions, yeah
    To cut through the confusion, yeah
    Oh, keep on digging deep, we keep digging deep
    We keep digging deep, we keep digging
    We keep digging, we keep digging
    We keep digging, we keep digging
    We keep digging, we keep digging

    Yeah, we don't stop
    We don't stop
    Yeah, we don't stop
    Oh, keep on digging deep, keep digging deep
    Oh, keep on digging deep, keep digging deep
    Oh, digging

    I got the fire, I got the soul
    I got the fire, I got the soul
    I got the fire, I got the soul
    I got the fire, I got the...
