Underground

Six feet of earth above my head
Keeps me safe from what she said
Six walls of wood to keep them out
The smart remarks,
The screams, the shouts
They scream, they shout
There’s only one way to
Drown them out

I hear your voice
I hit the ground
You look for me
But I’m not around
In that small cafe
There I wrote it down
I looked for you
You were not around
You’re the burning light
That killed my child
He’s gone underground
I’ve gone underground
I’ve gone underground…….
Some come to pay their last respects
Or beckon me to come around
They leave dried flowers in the air
Or place their feelings on the doorstep
At best they try to understand
And offer plans, most futile plans
Here in this darkness I can see
Your skin’s the closest thing to grace
It dance like ghosts upon my fingers
And feelings fly, they’re still alive
There’s only one way to drown them out

I hear your voice
I hit the ground
You look for me
But I’m not around
In that small cafe
There I wrote it down
I looked for you
You were not around
You’re the burning light
That killed my child
She’s gone underground
I’ve gone underground
I’ve gone underground…….
Six feet of earth above my head
Don’t keep me safe from what she said
Six walls of wood don’t keep them out
These frightful screams come from inside
They lay with me here through the night
