The Jam – Going Underground lyrics

Lyrics taken from

    The meaning of going underground is showing how even people who put on a nice facade are really all nasty underneath. It shows how the world is condemning itself with nuclear weapons and warfare. The singer wants to hide underground which has a double meaning. Not only does he want to go underground to avoid all of this, but he also is talking about an underground bomb sheler-and preparing himself for the future. The boys singing and shouting for tomorrow are the people with him who want war to end!
    -That is my analysis of this (awesome) song.
