When I was nothing and we were no one
I was the father of two hungry sons
I dug my way down into a night that seemed to guide me
But what I knew then as life was at it's end

Hattonrigg Pit disaster nineteen ten
We've come a long way since then
The words that move me are words of stone
That simplify me to a wordless drone

The masters living life on a plate
Us bastards digging and letting ourselves
Be tools to other's ends
Hattonrigg Pit disaster nineteen ten
We've come a long way since then

We lose how many years?
Make song, write down
Listen, down into light I dig, I dig

When I was nothing and we were no one
I started looking and look what I found
A planning stranger to pin my hope down
There was no danger of letting it be

A temporary trend
I know your ways will kill you in the end
But how many more 'til then?
