lyrics

I was down in Van Nuys when they told me you didn't rise.
They said that you were only in disguise.
That this step was just the first, for the knowledge you will thirst.
After passing the door it couldn't be any worse.

But it only one-way opens, you can't go back.
It might just be the darkness, you'll find out fast.

I was outside Marquette when I had my brush with death,
truck was coming, brakes screaming, I swerved left.

It only one-way opens, you can't go back.
It might just be the darkness, you'll find out fast.
But the road is all that matters, anyway.
And we'll hope that it was crooked and you strayed.

I was dreaming you were breathing, I was sleeping in Talkeetna.
And the worst part is your life was just a drag.
So raise up your glasses to life lived while it lasted.
I hope you traveled well and saw splendid things.

Because it only one-way opens, you can't go back.
It might just be the love that you had lacked.
It might will be the darkness, you'll find out fast.
Because it only one-way opens, you can't go back.
