Can You Dig This?

What can an old man tell you?
How worthless money is unspent?
It's all the same when it's gone
What's the point of saving
If expectation is always wrong?
Can you dig that kind of song?

But what did he just say?
Risk is the only game you should play?
Broke or bust, what did you rearrange?
Once you were poor, then a King
Are you the same or did you change?
Can you dig that kind of exchange?

There ain't no forgettin'
The picture in loving eyes
He doesn’t need to paint it
He knows which ones don’t tell lies
Maybe you should listen

What can an old man tell you?
Everything before it happens to you
You can wait it out if you like
Learning the hard way takes time
Or you can do it all tonight
Can you dig out of your own right?

But what did he just say?
Did he tell you to sail around the world
Or wait until breathing is no longer assured?
There’s no cure for your own toxicity
Why don’t you spread what you heard?
Can you dig up that kind of word?

There ain't no forgettin'
The picture in loving eyes
He doesn’t need to paint it
He knows which ones don’t tell lies
Maybe you should listen

They say it’s just money
Try living without it
It’s a scary place
When an old man can’t earn it
He wants you to know
The ceiling gets low
No matter how hard you try
You can’t dig what you can’t grow
