    Excavate

    [Chorus: Saint Claire]
    Fill my lungs up, pour my heart out, peel my bones away
    Crack my window, shed my shadow, excavate my pain

    [Verse 1: Macklemore]
    If I could read the world my notebook and these thoughts in it
    Would they judge me or love me for what I've written?
    Tryna get closer to spirit that enters the body
    It's the vessel like I'm not in it
    In fifty-something years, I won't be here
    There'll be a kid with some headphones coverin' his ears
    Walkin' 'round a hallway, dreamin' of ideas
    Find himself in the sound 'cause music is a mirror
    What you looking for? What you headed towards?
    What's your name worth when they mention yours?
    When you leave here, are you stepping forward?
    Can you remember your intention when they question yours?
    They're gonna question yours, they're gonna question yours
    I've been to rock bottom and I'm headed North
    If you don't love yourself, what's the respect for?
    If you don't love life, the check won't correct yours
    Excavate

    [Chorus: Saint Claire]
    Fill my lungs up, pour my heart out, peel my bones away
    Crack my window, shed my shadow, excavate my pain
    And I found peace
    And I found peace
    And I found peace

    [Verse 2: Macklemore]
    I had this vision of my death
    Surrounded by people I love and respect
    In the baby blue Cadillac hearse
    Pullin' me 'round the block that I rep
    The greatest fear that I've ever kept
    Is dying with regrets
    Like was I just alive for success?
    Or did I leave a better life for the rest?
    My greatest achievement isn't the dollars
    My greatest achievement isn't the followers
    My greatest achievement isn't the accolades
    My greatest achievement is my daughter
    Wakin' up in the morning, bein' a father
    Watchin' the light kiss her eyelids
    Hearin' her sing along to Chance
    And bein' like, "Yeah, that's my kid"
    The light started to glow
    And the saxophone from Coltrane started to blow
    Tender, laying in the snow, turn on my headphones
    Couple miles to go before I run out of road
    Excavate

    [Chorus: Saint Claire]
    Fill my lungs up, pour my heart out, peel my bones away
    Crack my window, shed my shadow, excavate my pain
    And I found peace
    And I found peace
    And I found peace

    [Outro: Macklemore]
    Hold me up into the light and study every part of me
    I'm an open book, no, I don't mind, but sometimes I'm hard to read
    Just flesh and bone, I'm headed home, but this life is so hard to leave
    But who am I when they cut the lights and nobody's watching me?
    Hold me up into the light and study every part of me
    I'm an open book, no, I don't mind, but sometimes I'm hard to read
    Just flesh and bone, I'm headed home, but this life is so hard to leave
    But who am I when they cut the lights and nobody's watching me?
