Peter Gabriel - Digging in the dirt

I love this song, especially when I'm stressed.  It tells about "history repeating". Bad things that happens to you as a child will be repeated in your adult behaviour. First when you break the vicious circle, you can change your behaviour and the way you treat others. My favorite line is " Don't talk back, just drive the car...".  This is so well observed. These things our parents used to shout at us and now we shout it at our boy/girlfriend or own kids.  Eerie, isn't it ?


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 [x3]
I told you [x4]
This time you've gone too far [x3]
I told you [x4]

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


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

Digging in the dirt
To find the places we got hurt
