"Underneath" as written by Alanis Morissette and Guy Sigsworth....
Look at us break our bonds in this kitchen
Look at us rallying all our defenses
Look at us waging war in our bedroom
Look at us jumping ship in our dialogues

[Chorus]
There is no difference in what we're doing in here
That doesn't show up as bigger symptoms out there
So why spend all our time in dressing our bandages
When we've the ultimate key to the cause right here, our underneath

Look at us form our cliques in our sandbox
Look at us micro kids with both our hearts blocked
Look at us turn away from all the rough spots
Look at dictatorship on my own block

[Chorus]

How I've spun my wheels with carts before my horse
When shine on the outside springs from the root
Spotlight on these seeds of simpler reasons
This core, born into form, starts in our living room

[Chorus]

    General Commentafter watching her music video for this song, my idea about what the lyric "we've the ultimate key to the cause right here right underneath" changed. Throughout the video it constantly shows how everytime she tries to get someone to take one of her "save the earth" flyers, everyone kind of blows her off like saving the earth is a big bother... and then at the end she takes down all of her save the earth stuff and kind of changes her approach to "Save the Heart", which i think is brilliant... So, what guess i'm trying to say is that i feel as if the lyric kind of sends a message that we must save our hearts before we can save the earth.... our hearts being the ultimate cause of why we now have to worry about saving the earth... if we would just kind of heal our hearts in a way where we would care about everything a little more, then saving the world would become a lot less of a bother...
