Description

600 FEET DOWN

Being buried 6 feet down wasn’t deep enough so I went for 600. If you were a coal miner, deep underground, and the ceiling collapsed trapping you, what message would you scrawl on the paper in your pocket, as your headlamp dimmed and life ticked away.

LYRICS:

My day began, excavating coal

The roof collapsed, deep in a hole

I’m in the dark, way underground

Minutes to live, nary a sound

Trapped underground, 600 feet down

Nobody around, hears my dying sound

My legs are crushed, I’m going to die

I saw my blood gush, I’m barely alive

I loved my wife, may my kids be strong

We were so happy, becoming a miner was wrong

Trapped underground, 600 feet down

Nobody around, hears my dying sound

Earths rocky womb, 600 foot tomb

A dynamite boom, sealed my doom
