underneath

Wow this new Alanis single really speaks to me. I love her! Lyrics below the video.
Underneath
by Alanis Morissette

Look at us break our bonds in this kitchen
Look at us rallying all our defenses
Look at us waging war in our bedroom
Look at us jumping ship in our dialogues

There is no difference
In what we're doing in here
That doesn't show up as bigger symptoms out there
So why spend all our time in dressing our bandages
When we've the ultimate key to the cause
right here, our underneath.

Look at us form our cliques in our sandbox
Look at us micro kids with both our hearts blocked
Look at us turn away from all the rough spots
Look at dictatorship on my own block

There is no difference
In what we're doing in here
That doesn't show up as bigger symptoms out there
So why spend all our time undressing our bandages
When we've the ultimate key to the cause
right here, our underneath.

How I've spun my wheels
With carts before my horse
When shine on the outside springs from the root
Spotlight on these seeds of simpler reasons
The core, born into form, starts in our livingroom

There is no difference
In what we're doing in here
That doesn't show up as bigger symptoms out there
So why spend all our time in dressing our bandages
When we've the ultimate key to the cause
right here, our underneath.
