Lyrics

Here in the underground no one has a name
Everything’s allowed, everyone’s the same
Here in the underground, I can get away
I can turn to stone, I can numb the pain
But I’m not as dumb as you might think
I drown you out so I don’t sink
And I cover my ears so I can’t hear what you say, and I

Press play, that’s how I make my escape
I press play, and the headphones bleed instead of me

Here in the underground, everyone is sick
Everything’s allowed, you wouldn’t like it
Here in the underground, I can get my way
I can turn to stone, and not succumb to pain
But I’m not as dumb as you might think
I gotta drown you out before I sink
So I cover my ears so I can’t hear what you say, and I

Press play, that’s how I make my escape
I press play, and the headphones bleed instead of me
That’s why I press play, that’s how I make my escape
And the headphones bleed instead of me

And it fills my head like an overdose
And I’m not deaf, but I’m getting close
And I turn it up, I’m fearless
But I can’t stop, I just press play

I press play, and the headphones bleed instead of me
That’s why I press play, that’s how I make my escape
