Underworld is a Pop Co-Op original single that appeared on Back In Time, a compilation CD of all originals that emulate the music styles of the 1980's. That album was released April 29, 2018 on Futureman Records.


When you say you need me
It feels just like a shadow play
And when you starve and bleed me
Although it’s madness, it only makes me stay

I’m living in this underworld
Battered by your cruelest intention
And when it’s springtime overhead
I’m banished to this darkest dimension - Underworld

I can’t stand forever
And I can’t leave your side
And when you’re cold and clever
I’d dive into the sun just to save my pride

I’m living in this underworld
Banished to a never ending distance
And when it’s springtime overhead
I’m trapped here in these fields of nonexistence - Underworld

Every day my ruination
Beckons me with your sweet smile
Siren song I can’t ignore
Shipwrecked on your distant shore
Never gonna reach my Blessed Isle

A tiny world, born in passion
A singularity of lust
But the center could not hold
It crumbled to extinction in the shattering of trust

I’m living in this underworld
Wished into a well of suffering
And when it’s springtime overhead
I’m harvesting this season of nothing
Underworld, underworld

Here comes Persephone
She’ll be the death of me
