The Grave


So many years ago

You gave me a shovel

Told me to dig my own grave

Instead I decided to bury my pain

Threw down the shovel

Got on my knees

Put my hands on my head

Told you to shoot me where I stand

I’d rather be dead

Than to be a martyr in your game.

  1. There’s an old English sketch show where an old lady passes a hippie in a cemetery. She says ‘do you dig graves?’ And he replies, ‘yeah, they’re all right.’ Just appealed to me.
