This song is by Ben Folds Five and appears…

I was never cool in school.
I'm sure you don't remember me.
And now it's been ten years
And I'm still wondering who to be.
I love to mix in circles, cliques, and social coteries, that's me

Hand me my nose ring!
Can we be happy?
Show me the mosh pit!
Can we be happy?

We can be happy underground.

Who's got the looks?
Who's got the brains?
Who's got everything?
Now I got this pain in my heart, that's all.
Hey you with the long and lonely face
There's got to be something else
Let me tell you something else
There was a girl that passed me by
She gave a smile but I was shy and looked down so down
Don't look down no no! Go go underground
And now there's a place to go.
It's the morning now, it's the evening
It's everything.
I click my heels and I'm there.

Underground, Underground
Everything's heavy underground
You've been kicked around,
Did life bring you down here?
Everything's heavy underground

We'll be decked in all black
Slamming the pits fantastic.
Officer Friendly's little boy's got a mohawk
He knows just where we're coming from.
It's industrial, work it underground
Get down, get down, get down

Oh we can't, oh we can't, oh we can't be

Oh, we can't, oh we can't, oh we can't be (3x)
Everything's happy underground, everything's happy underground.
