Underneath

Album: Trespassing (2012)
  • Strip away the flesh and bone
    Look beyond the lies you've known
    Everybody wants to talk about a freak
    No one wants to dig that deep
    Let me take you underneath

    Baby, better watch your step
    Never mind what's on the left
    You're gonna see things you might not wanna see
    It's still not that easy for me underneath

    A red river of screams
    Underneath
    Tears in my eyes
    Underneath
    Stars in my black and blue sky
    Underneath
    Under my skin
    Underneath the depths of my sin
    Look at me
    Now do you see?

    Welcome to my world of truth
    I don't wanna hide any part of me from you
    I'm standing here with no apologies
    Such a beautiful release
    You inside of me

    A red river of screams
    Underneath
    Tears in my eyes
    Underneath
    Stars in my black and blue sky
    And underneath
    Under my skin
    Underneath the depths of my sin
    Look at me
    Now do you see?
    Underneath, underneath, underneath,
    Underneath, underneath, yeah

    Welcome to my world of truth

    A red river of screams
    Underneath
    Tears in my eyes
    Underneath
    Stars in my black and blue sky
    And underneath
    Under my skin
    Underneath the depths of my sin
    Look at me
    Now do you see?
    Underneath, underneath, underneath
    Look at me
    Do you see?
    Yeah yeah yeah yeah!

    Look at me
    Do you see?

    Welcome to my world of truth
    I don't wanna hide any part of me from you Writer/s: JOSHUA CROSBY, CATHY LEE GRAVITT, TOM C. SHAPIRO
