Underneath The Ground

The Gaslight Anthem

Get Hurt


That's enough, my man, it's time to clap our hands
Call the papers up tomorrow, say we did the best we can
Cause our doctor's in the hospital, the poet just laid down
There's one good man I know, and he can't talk right now

I'd like to hear what you'd say to me
if I was bulletproof and free again
Or what you'd shout if I was dead in the ground
and buried under another name?

Or would you talk about if I loved her now?
Tell my sins to God out loud
Would you cry, cry 'cause I was gone?
Would you spit and hiss and curse my name
And embarrass me to the other graves?
Would you lay right down with me, underneath the ground?

Now who you think I am? Worse than all the rest?
That's what I'll be now, just like no one said
Did anybody see that?
There's a crack right down my head
But mama, how they'll cheer for us
while the blood drips down our legs

I'd like to know if you could see through the soul
like I could see to your soul back then
And reach your hands
through all the hurt and defenses
would you still try if you knew I was gone?

Or would you talk about if I loved her now?
Tell my sins to God out loud
Would you cry, cry 'cause I was gone?
Would you spit and hiss and curse my name
And embarrass me to the other graves?
Would you lay right down with me, underneath the ground?
Underneath the ground?

(I wanna caution you to watch out for the wolves
And for the mad, mad weather
I wanna caution you to watch out for the wolves
And for someday, when you're older)

Or would you talk about if I loved her now?
Tell my sins to God out loud
Would you cry, cry 'cause I was gone?
Would you spit and hiss and curse my name
And embarrass me to the other graves?
Would you lay right down with me, underneath the ground?
Underneath the ground?

I wanna thank you all for your courtesy
I wanna thank you all for watching us bleed
I wanna thank you all for your courtesy
I wanna thank you all for watching us bleed
Underneath the ground
