There's this quarry, that is dug so deep in a father's chest

from T.I. (Ft. Andre 3000 & Stacy Barthe) – Sorry Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This a great metaphor to paint the picture of pain because a quarry is a big gaping hole in the earth.

Quarry sounds a lot like query, which is basically what 3 Stacks has been doing this whole verse. He’s questioning if he made the best choice by walking out on his family to go live his life the best way he sees fit. He’s uncertain if the choices that he made were really the best choice for himself. He’s wondering how his life would have been different had he stayed with his kids.
