Adam Lambert: Underneath Meaning
Song Released: 2012
Look beyond the lies you've known
Everybody wants to talk about a freak
No one want to dig that deep
Let me take you underneath
Baby better watch you step
Never mind what's on the left
You're gonna see things...

I think the meaning of this is, he describe the sex of gays. 'A red river of screams'
he schrems because it hurts.
' Tears in my eyes' means that the pain is that big, he have to cry.
'Stars in my Blue and Black sky' He coudn't see something else because of the pleasure.
'Under my skin' means the ass where the other put his dick in.
' You are inside me' I think it means that someone put his cock into him.
Haha i think it's like this.. But it takes time to understand the pervert side of the meaning.

underneath is basically him telling everyone about the pain that is held up inside him

But I'm not quite clear about some lines like:
'Stars in my black and blue sky' and why he used 'Underneath'?

To me the song speeks of what some people go thru when they live in a life full of prejudice and are seen as nothing more than their skin color, race, sexuality, or pysical and/or mental handicap. It hurts when someone calls you stupid or a freak when they haven't walked in your shoes or lived your life.

I think that red river of screams means maybe not the selfharm but all the pain deep inside of him, which kind of pumps in his blood now meaning that it's always with him cause it has left a deep scar.

"a red river of screams" obviously refers to blood and self harm which may have been a part of his past and the pain that comes with it

"A red river of screams" I think thats a beautiful lyric... but what do you think it actually means?

i think hes talking about when you take away all the fame and fortune he has... hes the same old guy that was probably tormented for being gay when he was younger. And it still hurts deep down inside, no matter how well he hides it. Underneath all his fame and money, it still hurts when people call him "a freak"
("welcome to my world of truth"; "everyone wants to talk about a freak"; "tears in my eyes,underneath"; "your gonna see things you might not wanna see, still not that easy for me, underneath"; "look at me, now do you see") it really is a beautiful song... i recommend you listen to it
