John Anealio – Bottom of the Mine Lyrics

I got a job mining ore on Ceres
I’m leaving later tonight
They say the money is good but the work makes you weary
10 months away from your wife

The ferryman walks me through the flame
Out to the asteroid belt
I work the mine all day till muscles ache
Trapped in this gravity well

The ferrymen come, the ferrymen go
They still look young, while we’re getting old
They get all the fame and drink all the wine
While we’re all still stuck at the bottom of the mine

10 months have turned into 3 long years
I still haven’t met my son
I’m slowly dying on this icy sphere
Worlds away from my loved ones

I talk to the ferryman De La Garza
And ask him to take me back home
He said: “there’s no room this time for a Ceres miner”
Now I’m angry and I’m all alone.

The ferrymen come, the ferrymen go
They still look young, while we’re getting old
They get all the fame and drink all the wine
While we’re all still stuck at the bottom of the mine

The ferryman finally takes me home
But I can’t find my son or my wife
The neighbors said they left 3 months ago
With a ferryman by their side

The ferrymen come, the ferrymen go
They still look young, while we’re getting old
They get all the fame and drink all the wine
While we’re all still stuck at the bottom of the mine
