lyrics

There's a one way street
On the west side of town
Take a right after the parking lot
And go down down down
It sometimes feels like my life
Has got the same direction in mind
And all the signs keep telling me
The rules without affection Oh I'm

On a one way street
Can't change my destination
A few days ago my train left the station
And I've been left here with no explanation

Should I follow the rules
Like they taught me to in school?
Or should I ignore all the signs
And find my own direction in life?
Can't take a left can't take a right
I can't see the road there in the night
Am I the only one
Who doesn't feel that this is right?

On a one way street

There's a one way street
On the west side of town
Take a right after the parking lot
And go down down down
I think I'll take my own way
Despite the signs and what they say
If you're gonna get there anyway
You might as well enjoy today

On a one way street
Can't change my destination
A few days ago my train left the station
And I've been left here with no explanation
