Lyrics

UNDERGROUND

Far below
What we've said and what we already know
There is space for us to move just so
Though the darkness binds, it is good to find
You are ready

I've been told
It is terribly hard to grow old
As all the things we've bought and sold
Turn back to stars, all you think you are
Is a heart

And you should know
I am breaking up
Although - I have taken care to lie
To the neighbours
Oh, how they've heard us screamin' and cryin'

Lock the door
You'll be startled by the tireless roar
Of the wind moving on high
It is calling for the blood of the sky

So we go -

Underground
Far beneath the city lights and all sound
Don't make any noise, we won't be found

Do you feel
How the earth is shakes beneath as we kneel
When you move away, you disappear
And in the darkness binding, it's good we're finding
We're ready

So hold me tight
Through this closed and endless night
And you'll hear me calling out,
I need you now!
I need you now!

Turn around
In the beginning there was no such sound
How did we get to be so goddamned hunger-bound
(I need you now!)

Through the motions of sleep,
Shells of bees at our feet,
Waking hard at the sound
Of our dreaming underground

I would rather my heart
Were bit by stars in the dark
But the machines come at night,
The machines come at night!

So we go -

Underground
Far beneath the city lights and all sound
Don't make any noise, we won't be found
Underground, underground...
