“She lives in a fairy tale
Somewhere too far for us to find
Forgotten the taste and smell
Of the world that she’s left behind”

Check out the video for “Brick by Boring Brick” by the band Paramore. Not only are the lyrics very applicable to the Girl Underground, but the video itself is totally part of the archetype, right down to the very end when the girl indeed goes under the ground.

Thanks to reader Sofia for pointing me to this one!
