"Underneath The Radar" as written by Karl Hyde, Richard David Smith and Alfie Thomas....
Unknown
Unseen
We live underneath the radar
No sign - on screen
We dance underneath the radar

Between the walls - well hey
We're just too small to make a fuss about it
Did something fall? well hey
What is the point in losin' sleep about it?

See ya later - see ya later
Hip-a-no-no-no-no
Hip-a-no-no-no-no
See ya later - call me

We dance underneath the radar
We live underneath the bomb
When you live underneath the radar
There's no way that you're ever gonna get far
(So get hip!)

We speak
Unheard
Like ants we dance between the towers
We sleep
They move
Come sailin' over the horizon

Between the walls - well hey
We're just too small to make a fuss about it
Did something fall? well hey
What is the point in losin' sleep about it?

See ya later - see ya later
Hip-a-no-no-no-no
Hip-a-no-no-no-no
See ya later - call me

We dance underneath the radar
We live underneath the bomb
When you live underneath the radar
There's no way that you're ever gonna get far
(So get hip!)

He says I am the doctor -
In a be -52
I come across the horizon -
Drop my love on you
I'm gonna W-O-O-O-O-O ya all - Watch out!
I'm gonna W-O-O-O-O-O ya all
See ya later!

See ya later - see ya later
Hip-a-no-no-no-no
Hip-a-no-no-no-no
See ya later - call me

Between the walls - well hey
We're just too small to make a fuss about it
Did something fall? well hey
What is the point in losin' sleep about it?

We dance underneath the radar
We live underneath the bomb
When you live underneath the radar
There's no way that you're ever gonna get far
So get hip!

(All the best)

    General CommentI can't beleive I'm the first to comment on this song. It is a great 80's song and made even better by the fact they went onto doing stuff like Born Slippy, it makes you appreciate it even more. Great stuff all round.

    General CommentI'm going to guess it has something to do with living a life of insignificance in the eyes of those above you, and the joys of doing so.

    General CommentTo me this song was badass-it was like crack to my ears as a teenager growing up in what could
    be compared to Siberia. It's so weird how they started off as this and morphed into the band techno dance/house whatever everything but the kitchen sink kinda duo.
    Go further back-try "Freur".

    General CommentI agree, this is a great song from a great album. I love "Show Me Some Emotion" the most and "Pray" is a great tune as well.

    General CommentIf you take into factor the time period and even the eposide forr Miami vice this song was used, "underneath the radar" applys to airplanes not being on radar. "come sailing under the horizon" also relates to how the massive amounts of cocaine was brought into Miami in the 80's. "did something fall who cares" relates to the kilos lost in airplanes flying "underneath the radar". Think about it
