"Underground" as written by Perry Farrell, David Michael Navarro, Stephen Andrew Perkins, David Andrew Sitek and Carl R. Restivo....
I try and get some love from up high
There just ain't enough to go around

How you doing bro' is New York
Holding you up, or is it letting you down?
I have missed you all heaps and I've replanted
My feet back in the underground

I'm a hustler
Hustler
I'll never give up the underground

I came back to pay respect to another fallen angel
At the old canteen
Someone had to float the cash
Pay up for the wake and so we all agreed

We're all hustlers
Hustlers

I try to find some love from up high
There just ain't enough to go around
Someone had to pay up for the waste
Taking place down in the underground

Come on
I couldn't get up

We're all hustlers
Hustlers

I try to find some love from up high
There just ain't enough to go around
Someone had to pay up for the waste
Taking place down in the underground

    General CommentI don't remember what interview it was but I once heard Farrel and Navarro say that even though they are famous now their favourite places to play are small, smoky clubs and bars likte that. And I think this song might have something to do with that.

    General CommentJust watched a documentary called Dark Days about homeless people under NYC. I think some of the lines are ripped right from the documentary as well.
