The man who stole the water will swim forevermore
But he'll never reach the land on that golden shore
That faint white light will haunt his heart
Till he's only a memory lost in the dark

Dig a hole in the ground straight down to hell
Till there ain't no more water in the well, well, well
When you're down on your knees with nothing left to sell
Try diggin a little deeper in the well, well, well
Well, well, well
Well, well, well

Take care of your body like you care for your soul
Don't you dig yourself into a hole
Until you've paid the price you can't know what it's worth
The air and water, the fire and earth

Dig a hole in the ground straight down to hell
Till there ain't no more water in the well, well, well
When you're down on your knees with nothing left to sell
Try diggin a little deeper in the well well well
Well, well, well
Well, well, well
