Hive Open Mic Week 114 – Hole In The Ground

Greetings !!!

For this week, I chose an original off my third full length album In The Earth I Will Be Free, which came out in 2018. I chose the track called Hole In The Ground. It is one of a great many depressing songs that I write often. This song is about a daydream I used to have often, where I would envision myself laying in my coffin. I was going through a pretty dark time when I wrote this one. In the song I also touch on my view of human nature, which tends to ruin everything, and also the thought that none of this is even real. As ultimately, only death is real.

Lyrics

I know I’m lying next to you
oh but I am already gone
This world has nothing left for me
and of this life I am done

I don’t hate this world, but it’s just not real
All the truth is beyond, beyond that hole in the ground

I now have daydreams
of lying in my coffin
an imagination of hope
to see beyond my suffering

I don’t hate this world, but it’s just not real
All the truth is beyond, beyond that hole in the ground

This misery is my spirit guide
in this horrid plane of Hell
Where animals called “Humankind”
pretend to be something else

I don’t hate this world, but it’s just not real
All the truth is beyond, beyond that hole in the ground
I don’t hate this world, but it’s just not real
All the truth is beyond, beyond that hole in the ground
