Every day I get up and the day begins And every day I dig a hole and I fill it in People say, "You're crazy, man, now don't you care But I know there's treasure buried right down there I watch my dreams collect like dirt around a poor boy's neck These dreams shine like diamonds Down in my soul These dreams shine like diamonds And I'm digging for coal Sometimes it gets so hard to bear When people look at me like I'm not even there Or ask me what I've got to say And nod their heads like it don't matter anyway They don't pay me any mind cause I'm too dumb or they're too blind I see people get ahead Or people eating cake instead of daily bread But I ain't got it all that rough If dreams don't take me anywhere they seem to take me far enough It ain't much but it's okay to sleep all night and dream all day
