Sound Of The Underground

Album: Sound Of The Underground (2002)
Charted: 1
  • Disco dancing with the lights down low
    Beats are pumping on my stereo
    Neighbor's banging on the bathroom wall
    He's saying 'Crank the bass, I gotta get some more'
    Water's running in the wrong direction
    Got a feeling it's a mixed up sign,
    I can see it in my own reflection
    Something funny's going on inside my mind.

    Don't know what is pushing me higher
    It's the static from the floor below
    And then it drops
    And catches like fire
    And it's a sound I, it's a sound I know

    It's the sound of the underground,
    The beat of the drum goes round and round
    Into to the overflow
    Where the girls get down to the sound of the radio
    Out to the 'lectric night
    Where the bass line jumps in the backstreet lights
    The beat goes around and round
    It's the sound of the under, sound of the underground

    Chain reaction running through my veins
    Pumps the bass line up into my brains
    Screws my mind until I lose control
    And when the building rocks I know it's got my soul

    Water's running in the wrong direction
    Got a feeling it's a mixed up sign
    I can see it in my own reflection
    Something funny's going on inside my mind
    Don't know what, is pushing me higher
    It's the static from the floor below
    And then it drops
    And catches like fire
    And it's a sound I, and it's a sound I know

    It's the sound of the underground,
    The beat of the drum goes round and round
    Into the overflow
    Where the girls get down to the sound of the radio
    Into the 'lectric night
    Where the bass line jumps in the backstreet lights
    The beats goes around and round
    It's the sound of the under, sound of the underground
    And when the building rocks I know it's got my soul Writer/s: BRIAN THOMAS HIGGINS, MIRANDA ELEANOR DE FONBRUNE COOPER, NIARA SCARLETT
