Faith No More - Digging The Grave Lyrics

It would be wrong to ask you why
Because I know what goes inside
Is only half of what comes out
Isn't that what it's about?
It's about
To remind us we're alive
To remind us we're not blind
In that big, black hole

Digging the grave, I got it made

Let something in, or throw something out
You left the door open wide

I know you have a reason why
That knot is better left untied
I just went and undid mine
It takes some time
And the shadows so big
It takes the sun out of the day
And the feeling goes away
When you close the door

Digging the grave, I got it made

Let something in, or throw something out
You left the door open wide

Digging the grave, I got it made

Digging the grave, I got it made

Let something in, or throw something out?
You left the door open wide

And it's out of this world

Out of this world
Out of this world
Out of this world

    Most under rated drummer in rock

  6. Alice Hamphur

    Everithing turns Black.

  7. Faraz Korasani

    Swh in the blurriest part of my brain, I had stored a few foggy images of this music video from my childhood... took me some police work to find it. Maaan...

  8. shadowzone69

    And metalcore was no longer an underground sound.

  9. Monster Mike

    How many people thought that was Jim Martin But it's Dean Menta.

  10. J.R Duran

    Sim embrionário do que seria o nu metal de 98/00 , não a toa maioria das bandas desse estilo dizem que o faith no more seria o pai, principalmente por epic, mas essa do álbum de 1995 se aprofundou mais nesse estilo , nessa época o Korn já lançava A.D.I.D.A.S , e é uma das bandas que falam sobre o faith.

  11. chrisxdeboy

    What is this song about exactly? Like I kinda have some vague idea, but nothing I can put into words.

  12. Денис Панихин

    И что?

  13. David Gadea

    Thanks For All Faithnomorers !!! Salud y Vida Pa'lante !!! Cheers and Life On !!!

  14. José Carlos Junior

    MTX Mototrax

  18. Anne Patton

    Sir Patton at his best.

  19. Jack Brown

    This is my favorite Faith No More song

  20. David Bray

    No shit this is one of the most underrated bands I've ever had the pleasure of hearing. Even into the late 90's they still held it together, and made their best work, except for epic, which is epic as f obviously.

  21. Peter Sutherland

    Out of the world
    Covered in blood

  22. am3ient

    Ahhh this is still one of my favourite FNM albums. The sound of my late teens right here! 2019 and this song still sounds epic

  23. kakaistheman2007

  31. Евгений Должненко

  32. Misheard Lyrics

    0:33 digging the grave
    I got a face

  33. Lazy Holl0W

    Am I the only one who's getting strong Foo Fighters vibes from this song?

  34. tnightwolf

    One of their most underappreciated musics ever.

  35. CALH

    Alan Smithee

  36. Julius Holm

    The voice of this guy is out this world! I love him! And this tune is really badass! A very underrated album and band...

  42. Pearly

    Their music makes me feel soooo grateful I lived through such an awesome era in music. Fortunate to have seen them perform live. I was in awe of such genius performances. Love this band, then... and now. Sheer underrated brilliance!! 🙌🏽💟💦

  44. Lord Louis III

    Such an underrated Band

  45. inphanta

    This song needed Roddy's keys. Without them, it really sounds like something important is missing.

  46. jake flake

    Dennis Van den Broeck

    This is the first song I tried to play on the drums when I was a beginner...digging the grave, I got it made :-)

    jake flake

  74. Joseph Mondelli's Mad, Mad, Music World

    I feel Trey Spruance doesn't get the recognition he deserves. His guitar parts worked perfect on this album. Such a phenomenal player.


    Joseph Mondelli's Mad, Mad, Music World Any Bungle fan would appreciate the shit out of him 😉👍

    Chris McCarthy

    This. One of my fave albums and a shame he didn't even tour this record.
