When you're looking at life on the brim And trying to figure out if you remember how to swim You only find out if you jump right in That there's only one way, only one way When the writing on the road says slow And the people in the back seat ask which way to go The truth is they already know That there's only one way, only one way CHORUS We have to break all the rules they make And take all the risks they say we won't take We have to make all the trouble we can Only one way Only one way And when every single sound you hear makes no sense And your arse is sore with sitting on the fence And the scale of the problem is larger than immense There's only one way And when a genocidal maniac talks about grief And you kinda get the feeling that there's nothing underneath But you can't believe a man would lie through such nice teeth Only one way CHORUS X 2 And when you're thinking that there's nothing you can do But eat what they feed you like a monkey in the zoo Just remember that they want you to believe that'
s true And there's only one way, only one way CHORUS X 3
