"The Underdogs" as written by and Louis Robert Eliot....
The Underdogs keep running after shining motorbikes,
trying to keep up while they look back and laugh,
oh we're so tired of dragging our hearts.
It's the chrome and steel,
and all the power that we want to feel,
so when we catch them we will rip them apart,
'cause it's no more than they did to us.
* We've been waiting so long,
we know just what we want,
we will cheat and we'll rob,
'cause we are The Underdogs,
we are The Underdogs.
The Underdogs, and we've had too much shit kicked out of us,
to stop us howling at the moon through the night,
and if it keeps them up, well that's alright.
To be bitter and alone is such a dirty little job.
We're jaded to our brittle bones, 'cause we are The Underdogs,
yes we are The Underdogs.
* (repeat)

    General CommentI just have a feeling that this song is about a scooter gang (Quadrophenia-style). There's the kids with pimped out bikes, they aren't the underdogs. I like to imagine that the Underdogs are a couple kids who don't have bikes but if they do they're like kind of junked scooters. The Underdogs want it more than the kids who have the good bikes. Rialto's lyrics are always my favorites and the way the music to this song makes being an Underdog sound utterly glorious it the best.
