Diggin' Holes
Lyrics:

Well I wish that you would move to the sun, cuz
You're like diggin' holes in thin air and we know that can't be done
I wish that you would cheat with someone, cuz
You're like diggin' holes in water and we know that can't be done

Bravery and stupidity go hand in hand
And I guess that makes me the bravest man, cuz
I was quick to learn, but slow to understand well,
What can you do

My theories are borrowed from somewhere else
And I never had too many to talk about, cuz
You were real quick, and you were quick to point out well,
That was borrowed too

I wish that you would move to the sun, cuz
You like diggin' holes in water and we know that can't be done
I wish that you would cheat with someone, cuz
You like diggin' holes in thin air and we know that can't be done

Bravery and stupidity go hand in hand
So I guess that makes me the bravest man, cuz
I was quick to learn, but slow to understand well,
What can you do

Rhetoric and small talk are marching on
And I probably am the biggest pawn, cuz
I was quick to talk and the first to carry on well,
What can you do

You need a permit if you're gonna build shit
And you can't get one, so nothing gets built
And your house is standing on a foot and a half of silt

Well I wish that you would move to the sun, cuz
You're like diggin' holes in water and we know that can't be done
I wish that you would cheat with someone, cuz
You're like diggin' holes in thin air and we know that can't be done, well
I bet you will move to the sun, cuz
You're like diggin' holes in water and we know that can't be done, because

Rhetoric and small talk are marching on
And I probably am the biggest pawn cause
I was quick to talk and the first to carry on well,
What can you do
