I'm a big Peter Gabriel fan and I decided to do an acoustic version of this song from his 'Us' album. Who knew he would come out with his first solo record in 10 years a couple of weeks before the record came out!

Digging in the Dirt

Something in me, dark and sticky
All the time it's getting strong
No way of dealing with this feeling
Can't go on like this too long.

This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
I told you, I told you, I told you.
This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
I told you, I told you, I told you.

Don't talk back
Just drive the car
Shut your mouth
I know what you are
Don't say nothing
Keep your hands on the wheel
Don't turn around, this is for real.

Digging in the dirt
Stay with me I need support
I'm digging in the dirt
To find the places I got hurt
Open up the places I got hurt.

The more I look the more I find
As I close on in, I get so blind
I feel it in my head, I feel it in my toes
I feel it in my sex, that's the place it goes.

This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
I told you, I told you, I told you.
This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
This time you've gone too far
I told you, I told you, I told you.

Don't talk back
Just drive the car
Shut your mouth
I know what you are
Don't say nothing
Keep your hands on the wheel
Don't turn around, this is for real.

Digging in the dirt
Stay with me I need support
I'm digging in the dirt
To find the places I got hurt
Open up the places I got hurt
I'm digging in the dirt
Stay with me I need support
I'm digging in the dirt
To find the places I got hurt
To open up the places I got hurt.
