"Under the Floor Again" as written by Raymond Ian Burns, Paul Gray, Christopher John Millar and David Vanian....
Under the floor again
Once I was up and in the air but now I'm down
Goodbye to all my friends
Forget I ever was the mole goes underground

Under the floor again
Eight years of hide and seek no peek of me is seen
I skip the law again
The to and fro the come and go and miss the scene

But who was the girl we saw last night
Wearing a frock and gown she's kinda paralysed
A door in the floor a head materialised
I'm sure that I saw a face I recognised

Don't say a word
Just stay here at my leisure
No sound is heard
Can't take my simple pleasures
Like walking in the park
And taking in the air
Just lock me in the dark
It's no fun

Under the floor again
My baccy bets and beer are here and all I need
I'm feeling sore again
Three feet of life is all I have and rats to feed

Won't say a word
Just stay here at my leisure
No sound is heard
Can't take my simple pleasures
Like breathing in the air
It's cleaner than the stuff
I've had in recent months
It's no fun

Under the floor again
Once I was up and in the air but now I'm down

    General CommentRight now it's reminding me of that moment in a relationship when one partner says to another, "I don't think we should see each other everyday... etc.." .. It sucks. Rad, rad song though =o

    Song FactNothing like weighing in 11 years after the original comments but better late than never.

    Before Strawberries came out there was a story in the UK press about a guy who had escaped from prison and was hiding out at home; whenever anyone came to the house he would disappear into a hidey-hole under the floorboards beneath the sofa. The police had searched the house a number of times without finding the entrance and eventually people assumed he'd disappeared for good.

    If I remember rightly the cover was blown when a visiting school friend of his daughter saw a face under the sofa and told her parents hence the "who was the girl we saw last night" line.

    Again this may be unreliable memories but I think he was relieved to hand himself in because although not in prison he was effectively serving a life sentence in his own home and could never go out with his family or see his friends
