"Underworld" as written by Daniel Cavanagh, Vincent Cavanagh, John James Douglas, Keith Leslie Smith and David John Pybus....
Your good intentions are boring, take me away
If it keeps you sane, is that ok?
If I played it safe would it save me?
I'd like to get some rest now if I could just ignore the truth

Scratching at my window
This time I've got to make a move ego obliteration
Stand back and watch me melt away
Dissolve all recognition

But I got to burn this weight out of my mind
Running through my veins till I disappear
This feeling is over, this feeling is over me
This feeling is over, this feeling is over me

Climbing up my wall gonna creep between the cracks
Get out of my skull tighten the rope around my neck
Destroy all emotion got to rip my face to shreds
Cut my eyeballs open

But I got to burn this weight out of my mind
Run it through my veins till I disappear
This feeling is over, this feeling is over me
This feeling is over, this feeling is over me

    Lyric CorrectionYeah! Awesome Song...

    And here is the correct lyrics:

    There's always something you won't dare to say
    your good intentions, are boring, take me away
    if it keeps you sane, well then it's OK
    but, if I played it safe, would it save me?

    I'd like to get some rest now, if I can just ignore the truth
    scratching at my window, this time I got to make a move
    ego obliteration, stand back and watch me melt away
    dissolve all recognition

    but, I got to, Burn this wait, out of my mind
    running through my veins, until I dissapear

    This feeling is over, this feeling is over me
    This feeling is over, this feeling is over me

    There's always something, you won't dare to say
    (Climbing up my wall, gonna creep between the cracks)
    your good intentions are boring, take me away
    (get out on my skull, tie the rope around my neck,
    Destroy all emotion, wanna rip my face to shreds
    cut my eyeballs open)

    you know, i got to, Burn this wait, out of my mind
    running through my veins, until I dissapear

    This feeling is over, this feeling is over me.
    This feeling is over, this feeling is over me.

    General CommentI don't know if it's just me but this whole song sounds so schizophrenic.. especially the 3rd verse (the one with the parallel singing). One of my favorite masterpieces by Anathema, though (:

    My Interpretationcontinuing the line of the album story.
    I think in this one the main character is trying to find the catharsis after the revelation of "leave no trace" but still have a heavy weight on his shoulders
