“Dig” Incubus

I have always liked this song.  For some reason, like many Incubus songs, it has taken me years to see how deep this band’s lyrics are.  It speaks to the dynamic we all share where at one moment we are calm, at peace, then due to some external event, usually with another, we “forget” and turn on each other or even on ourselves.  Look around you can see in yourself, family, country, world.. micro to macro..

The ego is necessary and always a part of us, we just have work on not allowing it to “Drive” (another great Incubus song!) us around!!!  And at the macro level, it is ego with a capital E!  But since it bubbles up from the micro, control of ego must start within the individual, to the group and then the macro.

Sans Peur!

We all have a weakness
But some of ours are easy to identify.
Look me in the eye
And ask for forgiveness;
We’ll make a pact to never speak that word again
Yes you are my friend.
We all have something that digs at us,
At least we dig each other
So when weakness turns my ego up
I know you’ll count on the me from yesterday
If I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me
Sing this song
Remind me that we’ll always have each other
When everything else is gone.
We all have a sickness
That cleverly attaches and multiplies
No matter how we try.
We all have someone that digs at us,
At least we dig each other
So when sickness turns my ego up
I know you’ll act as a clever medicine.
If I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song!
Remind me that we’ll always have each other
When everything else is gone.
Oh each other….
When everything
Else is gone.
