I was never cool in school

I'm sure you don't remember me

And now it's been 10 years

I'm still wondering who to be

But I'd 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 got this pain in my heart, that's all

Hey you with the long and lonely face

There's got to be something else

Let me tell ya something else

There was this 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

But now there's a place to go

It's the morning, it's the evening

It's everything

I click my heels and I'm there



Underground, underground

Everything's happy underground

You been kicked around

Did life bring you down here

Everything's heavy underground



We'll be decked in all black and

Slamming the pit fantastic

Officer Friendly's little boy's got a mohawk

He knows just where we're coming from

It's industrial, work it underground

Get down, get down, get down



Underground, underground

Everything's happy underground

You been kicked around

Did life bring you down here

Everything's heavy underground
