UNDERGROUND

'Underground' is the first single released upcoming 2021 album 'HUMAN+' by OLDER.

The song was recorded and the video filmed during New Zealand's first level 4 nationwide lock down at home.

For us, it captures our reactions to the images that come in from around the world of nations shutting down. It was a time to realise that things were changing - how, few could know - but change they did.

It's also a euphemism for slipping below the surface and seeking out like minded people.

Released 10 September 2020

 

LYRICS

This city closing down
Left bare and dead
Wasteland of fallen kings
Drained dry and bled
These hoardings serve no one
They speak in tounges to me
Wasteland of lonely Queens
Berthed on the quay

I've seen these days in dreams
The nightmares, sweats and fevered scenes ... Of change

Down Down Down in the underground
Feel the rush of the wind and the heat
Down Down Down in the underground
Suck me in, take me down, take me deep

These empty streets cry out
In silent fear
Locked down, locked out, locked in
No one can hear
These vistas cast in steel
Stand bare against this sky
Peel bells, now call this time, this day
This city - died

I've seen these days in dreams
The nightmares, sweats and fevered scenes ... Of change

Down Down Down in the underground
Feel the rush of the wind and the heat
Down Down Down in the underground
Suck me in, take me down, take me deep

I feel this wave of change, drowning all that we once knew
Take me down and take me deep, underground to be with you

I know this world has gone, yesterday was years ago
Give me strength to make it through, diving deep loving you

Down Down Down in the underground
Feel the rush of the wind and the heat
Down Down Down in the underground
Suck me in, take me down, take me deep
