Exhausted by every waking thought
From a mind on the edge so fraught
Desperate hands dig into the ground
In search for a haven from ones own mind

New depths are reached
And the earth starts to surround
The air grows thinner
Deeper and deeper

And though the risk to life
Its hard to think of tomorrow
When today is so unbearable
Just desperate to dig to find relief

As all around closes in
You believe you cannot win
All that hurt before joins in
As new depths of pain are reached

Tired beyond belief
You cannot help but turn to see
Either dig deeper
Where the end is clearer
Or climb back
Where a tiny speckle of hope glimmers
