"Underdog" as written by and Tor Erik/eriksen Hermansen....
She's an underdog
Lives next door to me
She's always heard you won't amount to anything
And it kills me to watch the agony beyond her eyes
Tragic the way people pass her by
But now I realize

Everyone sees her
But nobody knows her
She screams in her pillow
For a better tomorrow

She hates it
But she takes it
Watch out for that girl
One day she may change the world

She's original
Never trying to fit in
She's got a way to always go
Against the grain

Oh yeah!
Someday they'll see how beautiful she really is
I know that last will be the first
The tables gonna turn cause?

Everyone sees her
But nobody knows her
She screams in her pillow
For a better tomorrow

She hates it
But she fakes it
Watch out for that girl
One day she may change the world

Maybe she'll be in a movie
Maybe she'll be in a song
Better pay her some attention
Before she's gone

She's an underdog
Yea
She means the world to me
Yea

Everyone sees her
But nobody knows her
She screams in her pillow
For a better tomorrow

She hates it
But she makes it
Watch out for that girl
One day she may change the world

Everyone sees her
But nobody knows her
She screams in her pillow
For a better tomorrow

She hates it
But she makes it
Watch out for that girl
One day she may change the world

    General CommentThis is totally my favorite song in the world. I can totally relate to it. Basically everyone sees the girl, maybe they even know her and stuff but they don't bother to befriend her or anything basically the reason nobody knows her. Or maybe they see the mask she uses but they don't see her real self so they don't know her. And she screams in her pillow and everything because she hates being seen but not known. She wants to basically no longer hide behind her mask but she's afraid to do so for fear of rejection or being shunned, maybe more than she already is. But maybe one day because of her trials and tribulations she'll change the world with her acting because she can relate to the character or emotion of the moment therefore she can truly show the emotion perfectly or she'll write songs that everyone can relate to. So basically one day she'll destroy her mask and change the world.

    General CommentI always say this song is my theme song.
    it's about a girl who is always put down and not really noticed, but someday she will shine and make a difference in the world.

    General CommentI posted a comment on thier myspace a couple years ago and it was about hoe boys don't like me at school and how I'm made fun of by other people so I'm starting to think that they saw it and decided to sing this song at their concert. lol

    OK this probably sounds kinda sad.
