NOTES FROM THE UNDERGROUND

It is rough it is not a kind world
Just when you felt good and calm
Someone gets you in the back
Then you do to others
What’s been done to you
And all you wanted was to be kind

I go down underground
Hide away where I’m not found
Let the world trickle out and fade away

It gets you to the core
To see recreational meanness
You despise those who reward
Gentleness with malice
They keep their lazy bullying on
When not hit back they carry on
They see kindness as weakness
And take advantage

I go down underground
Hide away where I’m not found
Let the world trickle out and fade away
In my rooms by myself
Can’t be hurt by anyone else
Don’t need to make the effort to adjust

Saw from my window
A man falling to his knees
Lying like there’s no reason to get up
But a woman walking by
Sat down by his side
And I saw it
I saw them both get up

Then there’s someone at your door
Faces you’ve never seen before
No names, no location, no hello
You tell them please to go away
But they don’t, they stay
And you just wanted to be left alone

I go down underground
Hide away where I’m not found
Let the world trickle out and fade away
In my rooms by myself
Can’t be hurt by anyone else
Don’t need to make the effort to adjust
