he took her life; he took it all
he leaned against a bloody wall
well he just stood there; he was keeping score
taking the whole damned world to the floor

too tough to take; it's too hard to give
cannot accuse; no, we cannot forgive
the easy out is nothing more
than to shoot the moon down to the core

one like me? someone like you
it cannot be; no, it would never do
le'ts boil it down to somebody small
there is no need to feel the fall

what will you take with your best?
what will you give with your best?
what will you be with your best?
don't let your mama clean up the mess

now i plan to tell every soul where the next one hides
and i want to end the flames of forest fires in mankind
but you don't see me and you don't seem to hear
and you won't touch me underground

you cannot stop; you cannot stay
you move on me; your busy day
someone will show to make a face
to wave a flag just to kill disgrace

what will you take with your best?
what will you give with your best?
what will you be with your best?
don't let your mama clean up the mess

what will you take with your best?
what will you give with your best?
what will you be with your best?
don't let your mama clean up the mess



Underground (story & credits):

Tasha Miller (Portland, OR) wrote Underground on October 2, 2015, the day after Christopher Harper-Mercer took a total of 10 lives (including his own)
during a 10-minute time frame in a Roseburg, Oregon college classroom. She leaves this song to his mother as a token of love. "Underground" is where mental health issues "live," because unlike a cancerous tumor (able to be burned off or surgically removed
and HELD), we cannot see mental health complications with the physical eye. This is partly what lends to the stigma our society continually tries to break down. When was the last time someone organized a meal train for your friend who struggles with alcoholism?
Cancer diagnoses are a free ticket for a meal train. Tasha Miller (Trichotillomania, Major Depression, Bi Polar and Severe OCD) takes Sertraline as a remedy. When her husband had Stage 4 cancer, they accepted friends' home-cooked food for ten months. Tasha's
volcanic heart is filled with gratitude across the board...but when the Roseburg shooting happened, she was launched to write the Underground. Everyone is doing THEIR best. (Not everyones' bests are the same.) Her thoughts and prayers are with Christopher's
mother at this time...as well as all of the victims' families and the entire Roseburg/Umpqua College community.
