Alec Benjamin - Journey To The Lowest Place On Earth Lyrics




I took a journey to the lowest place on Earth
Got a shovel and I dug into the dirt
Put an apple and some water in my backpack
Well, I don't know if I will ever take a backtrack

Black's the only colour I could see
Then my hand just disappeared in front of me
And when I finally hit a piece of solid stone
Began to wonder if I'll ever make it home

This might be
The lowest place on Earth
Gone too deep
But for what it's worth

I've been to the bottom
I've drilled through the rock
And I know how it feels to just fall from the top
Might be
The lowest place on Earth

I kept on digging 'til it turned into a climb
That's when I knew that I had reached the other side
My biceps turn into a solid rock
I found my rhythm and I knew I couldn't stop

When the light began to leak into the cave
I cried because I knew I had been saved

This might be
The lowest place on Earth
Gone too deep
But for what it's worth

I've been to the bottom
I've drilled through the rock
And I know how it feels to just fall from the top
Might be
The lowest place on Earth

Digging and digging 'til I see the sun
I dig the hole that I must overcome
Climbing and climbing 'til I make it out
Pulling my body onto solid ground

Might be
The lowest place on Earth
Gone too deep
But for what it's worth

I have been to the bottom
I've drilled through the rock
And I know how it feels to free fall from the top
Might be
The lowest place on Earth

  5. Diamond - Zoyd

    Alec plays Minecraft I guess.

  6. MusicalFreak GamerGeek

    When you forget your torch while mining in Minecraft

  7. Ellie Belcher

    "Black's the only color I could see...began to wonder to wonder if I would ever make it home" hit me harder than should be allowed.

  8. Hhmmm

    *His voice is so soft it makes me cry*

  9. cilije S

    Can you put more songs of you on Amazon music pllls I love them so much and also want to hear them offline 😣

  10. Kady Leigh

    OH MY GOSH I FORGOT HOW MUCH I LOVED THIS SONG

    The nostalgia coming back from when this was released is kicking in

  11. Local Sadness

    this song is amazing and it made me cry..its so relatable for me right now because im at the lowest place on earth ...and i just need help getting back to where i need to be and back to happiness.. keep up the great work alec! youre amazing and all youre songs are so pure and touching and sad sometimes if you just really listen to the music and the singing.🖤🖤

  12. Isabelle LaFrance

    This is song so underrated, but its one of my favourite because I relate to it so much. Also I love almost every single one of Alec's songs even the old one, from the beginning to now I love all of them.

  13. Lahly Bird

    Is this about your failed label Alec?
    oh, You have turned the tables so much.
    I can't believe this is just the demo, this is really freaking good just on it's own.

  14. Liz Todd

    I wish this was on spotify

  15. Lianna-Grace

    This is the first song that Alec uploaded after I subscribed. I remember recommending his music to all my friends and showing them this only for them to shrug it off. Everyone who told me to shut up loves his music now that he’s rising in popularity. I’m so proud of how far he’s come in these past few years- listening to his older demos brings me so much nostalgia.

    Lahly Bird

    He's fallen
    And now, he's climbing back up.
    And he will break the surface of the earth and continue until he gets his wings and everyone realizes that he was truely an angel the whole time.

  16. The confused Soul

    Words.. ughh.. this is magic. Your songs are all so so lovely.

  17. MusicalFreak GamerGeek

    Sounding like someone went mining without any torches. Sad times my dude ✌😔

  18. Abby Hastings

    This perfectly explains my GPA

    Lahly Bird

    Yep lol.

  19. Hope Takle

    Plz come to nz

  20. Drew Jones

    We need to do something about this Alec problem.
    Why does no one know who he is?
    Why is he not topping every chart ever created?
    Why is this song less popular than "Break up with your girlfriend cause I am bored"??
    Answer me this.

    Lahly Bird

    Answer.
    society has fallen

  21. Gotcha Info

    We don’t even need an official version.. the demo is beautiful and absolutely perfect ♥️♥️♥️♥️😭😭😭

    Lahly Bird

    I'm still kind of shocked by the fact that this is a demo and not the actual song

  22. Ashley Thompson

    this song may have been the most fun to harmonize with.

  23. leen jawad things 2003

    Some people can't even make bad songs, don't drink and drive ❤️ did alec visit dead seaaaaa for real I've got to know

  24. Taniya N

  25. Aysha K

  26. Sammy The Doggo

  27. ExtinctAsteroids

    Usually you wait for the best part wich is the chorus... in all his songs you just love every second of it.

  38. iksroney

    I know this was posted a while ago, but in my life, I would only change a few lines.

    I don't know what it's like to free fall from the top. Or to see the sun, or the light. I haven't been saved from my depression, and I don't know if I ever will. I've gone to therapy twice now, and they said it's very likely I've been depressed since second grade...

    Some people are depressed from stress of a bully from school or something, but the biggest bully I've had in my life, is myself.

    "I'm ugly, worthless, a waist of money, time, and space." And so much more.
    "Would others be happier if I never existed, if I was erased from existence, or if *I* erased myself."

    I'm not looking for sympathy, sometimes you just need to talk, or just think about what's keeping you down, to feel better. Even if it's only an hour or happiness. 😊

  39. Makeshift Feelings

    he's digging and digging trying to find something to connect to, just making himself more upset. now he's trapped in this bottomless hole of misery he can't get out of no matter how hard he tries.

  40. Mental latneM

    Ok... I can't be the only person thinking of Minecraft when you hit bedrock and you ran out of torches 😂 the song is still amazing tho! 💖

  41. Space Geek 85

    this song literally made me cry. it just, ive been at that lowest place and all of these lyrics hit so hard. i dont know, i guess its just hearing somebody who i look up to talk about how they overcame something im still struggling with. i just... i don't know. im gonna listen again though.

  42. Moody Prick C:

    I luv you man

  43. crowrk333

    Alec’s voice trumps all other instruments. The the accompaniment is great but the voice is the star.

  44. AaMmBb

    Thought he meant Antartica lol

  45. Best N

    we all need to watch the video music over and over lets get him millions in ad revenue!

  46. Goldleaves Production

    I memorized all the songs

  47. Molly Sirois

    His music is so important.
    More people need to hear it.
    He needs some serious recognition.
    He is making some damn powerful art.

  48. Livi Lee

    I feel like I’m in the Lowest place on earth right now...

  49. Taïga é comum

    I can’t learn without listening your music

  50. Namjoon's Dimples

    an actual angel.

  51. PracticallyAPenguin100

    I'm gonna sing this for a solo for a project for chorus

  52. Livi Lee

    Okay wait how have I never seen this till now?

  53. Moody Prick C:

    Boi I freaking love you ;(

  54. Mel Mya

    Your amazing when I first realized my three favorite songs, that had goten me through some really tough times, were by the same person and that you had more I was amazed. I never realized that one person could make such a difference in a persons life. I also know in not the only one that feels this way. Your songs have such emotion and power in them. You reach the deepest part of our emotions even the ones most would never have the courage to touch. So I guess I just want to say thank you.

  55. luiz ledur

    God this song is so good

  56. stan ateez

    I remember when this came out, I fell in love with it straight away ♡ you've helped me out of some low places alec, so thanks even if you dont see this

  57. Kassie 13

  60. Lps Cheer

    Your music literally never disappoints! You are amazing and I know I comment a lot but it’s because you are amazing and deserve to know and deserve to be happy! You always make me smile even when I’m sad. You are amazing Alec:)

  61. Poniies

    Alec, this song was my go to in the depths of my depression. Your music, especially this song, has influenced my life in the most extraordinarily positive way. You will never understand how grateful I am for your art. I love you more than words and I cannot wait to see you in concert this Saturday.

  62. you got no jams

    alec is so fit wtf

  63. shego1142

    I love this song and I hope this doesn’t sound like an insult because it’s definitely not meant to be

    But this is such a wonderfull song to listen to while playing Minecraft

    Idk if that’s what you intended but it gives me that same “coming home” feeling that Minecraft normally gives me <3

  64. zapen

    that not sanitary XD

  65. Christian Garcia

    I'm surprised Alec Benjamin isn't famous

  66. Charlie Brown

    All of his demos are his saddest songs

  67. cheryl bombshell

    alec is literally so underrated. i cant say it enough. his music is genuinely so heart touching and so many people can relate to it deeply and all his songs are beautifully put together. i cant wait until he blows up the internet and gets the attention he deserves. everytime i listen to his songs, they all hit me right in my heart, it’s just so powerful. god bless you, alec.

  68. Swar Dave

    i bought youtube premium for u

  69. Mathijs Rikken

    This whole song is a metaphore for the start and the ending of a depression... it is.. perfect...

  70. Jiwani Ledder
