"Six Underground" as written by Chris Corner, Liam Coverdale-howe, Ian Pickering and John Barry....
Take me down
6 underground
The ground beneath your feet
Laid out low
Nothing to go
Nowhere a way to meet

I've got a head full of drought
Down here
So far off of losing out
Round here
Overground, watch this space
I'm open to falling from grace

Calm me down
Bring it round
Too way high off your street
I can see
Like nothing else
In me
You're better than I wannabe
Don't think 'cos I understand
I care,
Don't think 'cos I'm talking
We're friends
Overground, watch this space
I'm open to falling from grace

Talk me down
Safe and sound,
Too strung up to sleep
Wear me out
Scream and shout
Swear my time's never cheap
I fake my life like I've lived
Too much,
I take whatever you're given, not enough

Overground, watch this
Space, I'm open
I fake my life like I've lived
Too much,
I take whatever you're given, not enough
Overground, watch this
Space, I'm open
To falling
From grace.

    Song MeaningThis song is filled with metaphors, symbolism, multi-layered, ripe for interpretation. The writer may or may not have fully understood at the time they were writing this the complexity or the multi faceted interpretation possibilities.

    The Genius of this multi-layered poetic writing will prompt many interpretations. As I have read through the comments, the song has many meanings based on the individual's Perspective and Life Experiences. That is the true beauty of art, we get to experience it in a way that we see and understand / interpret it.

    The song absolutely has references to drugs, sex, relationships, deity, death suicide and on and on.

    It's up to the listener to decide what they want to think, feel and hear from it. While the writer may have had one purpose or intent in mind it cannot be helped but there are many different meanings that one can take away from the song
