I've been down so long, I cannot see
Any way out of me

I live under rocks and under stones
That's where I spend my time alone

People don't know I exist
Their company is never missed
I never see the light of day
Somehow that don't bother me

Nothing ever changes
I gave up trying

Once I stuck my head above ground
I didn't like what was around

Crime, disease and poverty
All of this assaulting me

People shove as hard as they can
No one lends a helping hand
You could drop dead in the street
And they'd just laugh hysterically

Nothing ever changes
I gave up trying

Worlds may come and worlds may go
I'll just stay here down below

Bats and worms are my friends
They'll stick with me until the end

Don't want to be a part of your land
'Cause down here I am my own man
I live and hope eternally
For a world filled with peace

Nothing ever changes
I gave up trying

    General CommentThis song is, in my opinion, about someone who hates and fears society. An individualist, a sensitive man, a man who wonders why people are like they are and not like they should/could be.

    But it also reminds me of the protagonist of "the Parfume" written by Patric Süßkind. He also lived under a rock for about 30 years just to hide from the 30 years long war. His only compagnions were worms.

    Hail to Vitus!
