Back to Underground lyrics

Underground

I was never cool in school
I'm sure you don't remember me
And now it's been ten years
I'm still wonderin' who to be
And I love to mix in circles
Cliques and social coteries
(That's me)

Hand me my nose-ring
(Can we be happy?)
Show me the mosh pit
(Can we be happy?)
We can be happy
Underground

Who's got the looks?
Who's got the brains?
Who's got everything?
I've got this pain in my heart
That's all

Hey you
With the long and lonely face
There's gotta be somethin' else
Let me tell you somethin' else

There was a girl who passed me by
She gave a smile but I was shy
I looked down, so down
Don't look there no no
Go go underground

And now there's a place to go
It's the mornin' now
It's the evenin'
It's everythin'
I click my heels and I'm there

(Underground, underground, ooh)
Everything's happy underground
(Underground, underground, ooh)
You been kicked around
Did life bring you down here?
Everything's heavy underground

We'll be decked in all black
Slammin' the pit fantastic
Officer Friendly's little boy's
Got a Mohawk

And he knows just where
We're coming from
It's industrial, work it underground
Get down, get down, get down yeah

(Underground, underground, ooh)
Everything's heavy underground
(Underground, underground, ooh)
You been kicked around
Did life bring you down here?
Everything's heavy underground

We can be happy
We can be happy
We can be happy
Underground

We can
We can
We can be
Everything's heavy

(Underground)
You been kicked around
(Underground)
Did life bring you down, here?
Everything's heavy underground
Bye bye

We can
We can
We can be
(Everything's heavy underground)

We can
We can
We can be
(Everything's happy underground)

We can, we can
We can be
We can, we can
We can be

Everything's heavy underground
Everything's heavy underground
Everything's heavy underground
