Wasn't Deeper Underground written for the late-90s Godzilla remake? I'd
assume it was referencing the film, rather than providing an allegorical
tale about modern life.

It's about Godzilla, but there's a tradition of dance records talking
about being underground, so it's also referencing that. Underground
being authentic, secret, out of the mainstream.

The song is from the point of the view of the monster. Jamiroquai's
early opuses featured many environmental themes. This song is perhaps a
return to these themes. Their first album Emergency on Planet Earth and
to some degree Virtual Insanity, yes, it's that video with the moving
floors, both reference modern feelings of alienation and anomie (with a
party flavor) due to environmental disintegration.
So IMO the song is sympathetic to the monster that has to go "deeper
underground" because humanity has created it, in an attempt to mCheap Monster Beats ess with the environment, while it is not the poor monster's fault.
Also Jamiroquai's lead singer Jay Kay was briefly homeless as a teen and
was involved in crime and was stabbed almost to death. IMO the song is
informed by this. "I know I'm better off standing in the shadows far
from humans with guns," may as well be an autobiographical statement.
Deeper Underground, when compared to the larger oeuvre of Jamiroquai, is
somewhat filler. It was made for the 1999 Godzilla soundtrack, which I
don't believe it's actually on. someone correct me if I'm wrong here. It
was thrown out rather ha Monster Dre Beats

left the band shortly after Travelling Without Moving and the subsequent
Jamiroquai album, Synchronized, was released almost a year late after
being recorded completely from scratch-- ultimately to be released on
