"Underneath" as written by and Jessica/gerrard Simpson....
I know that compassion is all out of fashion
And anger is all the rage
Grow up and give in to that cynical spin
That you see on most every page

We all know what's wrong with the system
And how the people are puppets and fools
And if they're not strong it will trick them
They'll get used up like factory tools
And kids just give up in those schools, yeah

But what is it really, that's keeping me
From living a life that's true?
When the worries speak louder than wisdom
It drowns out all the answers I knew

So I'm tossed on the waves of the surface
Still, the mystery is dark and deep
With a much more frightening stillness
Underneath, underneath, oh oh

And hopelessness always comes easy
But 'easy' does not make it right
And courage can look past that surface
But fear will still put up a fight

And when I get scared and scattered
And I don't know where to begin
Why even care, it doesn't matter
Why fight when you know you can't win?
It's easier just to give in

But what is it really, that's keeping me
From living a life that's true?
When the worries speak louder than wisdom
It drowns out all the answers I knew

So I'm tossed on the waves of that surface
Still, the mystery is dark and deep
With a much more frightening stillness
Underneath, underneath, underneath, oh
