Digging Out the Bottom of a Well

You have no idea

But how could you tell?

Hard to see

the ingenuity

I’m digging out the bottom of a well

*

Shovels and pitchforks

You can hunt me down

I’ll be right here if you take a look

*

But you probably won’t see

Past the distance

Just me

Water’s rising

And it’s darker than all Hell

**

I had no idea

But how could I tell?

Hard to see

through the mystery

I’m digging out the bottom of a well

*

Visions and voices

As water rushes

You’ll understand if you send down the bucket

*

But you might not see

Past mistake and misery

The water’s for you

Since today’s hotter than all Hell

**

I never thought life would get to this

Me explaining

why I’m digging

*

Only drink on some days

I hope the new well pays

There’s rain

but the drought is not a figment

*

Converging streams

Beneath the clay

Raging rapids hidden away

So I dig faster

till a higher level stays

**

Many thought I’d never surface

Buried me deep

That’s why I’m digging

*

For me drinking’s OK

But I’d like the chance to bathe

There’s trickles

But the flow is insignificant

*

Emerging clean

Was always pure

Rising rivers are for sure

So I hold my breath

Till a cleansing current cures

**

We had no idea

But how could we tell

Hard to see

The sanity

When I’m digging out the bottom of a well

*

Shovels and pitchforks

I’m getting way down

I’ll be right here if you take a look

*

I hope you will see

Past the distance

Just me

My eye’s shining

As metal sparks on rock in our Hell

**

I have an idea

That I’d like to tell

Plain to see

Our chemistry

As I dug out the bottom of the well

*

Vision and voices

Our love gushes

We understand and fill our hearts

Not just our cup

*

And now you can see

Past mistake and misery

The water’s clean

and Sparks of light

Get us thru all Hell
