Strike when you hit

I'm touching something
I'm starting to get somewhere
Where I don't know
But it's somewhere over there
I've been digging
Mostly digging myself holes
But somethings sticking
And I'm tapping into souls
Getting focus
From something down below
The ground is dug
And the hum from the bass is low
Now's the moment
To increase the efforts hard
Strike while the iron
is hot but not charred
