"Overground" as written by and Morris Susan Ballion....
Got to give up life in this netherworld
Got to go up to where the air is stale
And live a life of pleasantries
Mingle in the modern families

Overground--from abnormality
Overboard--for identity
Overground--for normality
Overboard--for identity

This limbo is no place
To be a digit in another space
In another crowd
I'm nameless bound

Overground--from abnormality
Overboard--for identity
Overground--for normality
Overboard--for identity

Overground--I'll be worse than me
Overground--it's clear to me
I'll be worse than me

    General CommentSEVERIN: "It was written at a time when we were all getting desperate for a contract... and it's really to do with why we wanted a major record deal." Source: Record Mirror 09/12/78.

    At the time, Siouxsie and The Banshees couldn't get a major record deal because of their controversial lyrics and sound, and a lot of labels wanted to limit what the Banshees sound was, thus making them more radio friendly.

    At the same time the Banshees wanted a record deal and thankfully they did get it in the end without having to lose their identity.
