"Life Underground" as written by Michael Elvis Baskette, Imran Siddiqi, Joel Fletcher C Birch, Ahren Charles Stringer, Troy Jon-colin Brady and Ryan Burt....
You speak my name and shudder, but I'm still here.
I built a bridge here just to burn it, just to light my faded path.
So I could see what's down below me, because how I yearn to see you laugh.
Oh how I yearn to see you laugh.

So selfish were my footsteps and so foolish are they now.
But there's not much I can do here now that I'm living underground.
Speak now my precious whispers, float softly through the breeze.
Please float on by my loved ones and let them know that I'm still here...

You speak my name and shudder, but I'm still here.
I built a bridge here just to burn it, just to light my faded path.
So I could see what's down below me, because how I yearn to see you laugh.

So selfish were my footsteps and so foolish are they now.
But there's not much I can do here now that I'm living underground.
Speak now my precious whispers, float softly through the breeze.
Please float on by my loved ones and let them know that I'm still here...

And we sing whoa oh whoa, our voices carry through the hills.
Whoa oh whoa oh, the whole world is standing still.
We're singing for the dead, for the lost and for the stolen.
Our hearts beat double time, and oh they feel so broken,
Oh how they feel so broken.

Is this really what I wished for,
When I felt my feet drag heavy on the earth?
Is this really the answer I sought when I was searching for self worth?
Go now precious whispers, float my sorrow into the sea.
Let the waves collapse above me and wash away my fucking memory!

So selfish were my footsteps and so foolish are they now.
But there's not much I can do here now that I'm living underground.
Speak now my precious whispers, float softly through the breeze.
Please float on by my loved ones and let them know that I'm still here...
I'm still here.

    My InterpretationWell, OBVIOUSLY this is an album about suicide (if the album art wasn't a hint), these lines of this song are:
    "Is this really what I wished for
    When I felt my feet drag heavy on the earth?
    Is this really the answer I sought when I was searching for self worth?
    Go now precious whispers, float my sorrows into the sea
    Let the waves collapse above me, and wash away my fucking memory".
    I think by "Living Underground" he's talking about being dead and buried, yet his spirit still lives on. The line "So selfish were my footsteps and so foolish are they now,
    But there's not much I can do here now that I'm living underground" leads me to believe that he regrets making the decision to end his life because he misses his loved ones and regrets the hurt he's caused them:
    "Speak now my precious whispers, float softly through the breeze
    Please float on by my loved ones and let them know that I'm still here".
