Lyrics

These Deepak, ad-hoc, streaming times

Brain endorphins gratify

Drive you, drive through, supersize

4 Bars, 5 stars, satisfy

Smart watch, binge watch, platinum plan

Quick heal, red heels, better than

Sport drink, uplink, upper hand

Show off, share on Instagram

Our gig-based, bit-rate, real-time lives

Face-time, Spring break, compromise

There’s one thing that does not change

Is the thing that we don’t realize

We’re digging, digging, digging, digging for gold

It’s in the echoes, the path, the map I seek

A construct of how we perceive

When you stop your search for your belief

You’re gonna be surprised to see

Where you’re digging, digging, digging

Digging for gold

Peel the layers, listen, and learn

What’s real becomes clear’s when the tables turn

The shiny lure that tempts our soul

In this distracted, on-demand, hashtag world

Our gig-based, bit-rate, real-time lives

Face-time, Spring break, compromise

There’s one thing that does not change

Is the thing that we don’t realize

We’re digging, digging, digging, digging for gold

It’s the twilight zone of this belief

A zero sum technology

It’s the cutting edge, and life’s history

In a cut throat world where we compete

In our gig-based, bit-rate, real-time lives

Face-time, spring break, compromise

This can all be explained

Soon enough I’ll  realize

I’m  digging, digging, digging, digging for gold
