Slowly she moves underground
Far below is where she is found
Quickly now she's moving up
Seed of need it will erupt

Something is happening underneath the ground
For she's been waiting to bloom
Thinking and wondering
Of her climb up to the sun
For she's been waiting to bloom
Waiting for her

Thinking now she can't ever get in
Dizzy now from the earth and its spin
Forcing her she must give up
Seed of need it will erupt

Waking so sweetly
The earth she has outgrown
For she's been waiting in bloom
Stretching she's growing
Her time has just begun
For she's been waiting to bloom
Waiting for her

Let me grow
The soil it strangles me
Let me grow
The soil it strangles me

Something is happening
Underneath the ground
For she's been waiting to bloom
Thinking and wondering
Of her climb up to the sun
For she's been waiting to bloom
Waiting to bloom

    General CommentTo me, this song means (she) being tired of complacency and struggle and getting to the top already ... she's coming into a personal period of growth and transformation, albeit further insecurities and struggle. She's been underground and the seed within/the cold underdeveloped kernel needs the warmth and nurturing of the sun.

    General CommentI took this song as about rape. "Seed of need it will erupt" is about the rapist stalking her in the beginning. The chorus is about the pregnancy after being raped.
