Here on the ground
I cannot hear a sound
Just a strong and steady rain
Getting louder as you sing

It may be true that I lied
I broke a promise that I tried
But my heart no longer beats
My blood makes black dirt under your feet

Black dirt will stain your feet
And when you walk
You'll leave black dirt in the street

I could feel my face grow pale
Sick with fear my senses fail
And as the light fades from my eyes
I smile but don't know why
Legs are growing to the heat of the sun
And my heart no longer beats

Black dirt will stain your feet
And when you walk
You'll leave black dirt in the street
(X2)

Here on the ground I lie
I cannot hear a sound as I die
It may be true that I lied
Broke a promise that I tried
But my heart no longer beats
And when you kill you'll only leave
Black dirt under your feet

Black dirt will stain your feet
And when you walk
You'll leave black dirt in the street
(X4)

    A woman has just broken the singer's heart and the "black dirt" he sings of is the mark of what she did. "my blood makes black dirt under your feet" she crushed his heart but the black dirt, her actions, will be evident to everyone she meets.

    I think it's a metaphorical death because it seems that he knows the person who is 'killing' him. I think it's some what of a broken heart love song :p just a guess.

    It appears to be the thoughts of the spirit of a dying man, perhaps one that has been murdered or attacked.
