"Only One Word Comes to Mind" as written by and Simon Alexander Neil....
This time it's now or never
The ones we are supposed to bow to

In time we all crawl
Believe in
Believe in me

In time we all fall
Through her fingers

Its alright to hide away underneath the ocean
Open up the way I have to feel right

In time we all saw
Him open up her

These words won't help you
If your looking for answers

Its alright to hide away underneath the ocean
Open up the way I have to feel right

She's what I crave
She's what I crave
She's what I crave

    General Commentthis is the second song on the new record that really stood out to me, along with "atrocity" i dunno what it is about this song i like the prolonged intro to the tune and i think the lyric "its alright to hide away underneath the ocean" as sometimes we all just feel like we could get away for just one moment and the ocean seems like such a peaceful place and all... :s but i really do like this song its a classic biffy song, one that you can jus imagine everyone singing along to word for word

    General CommentThis song is about breaking up, and seeing the person you loved with a new lover.

    This time it’s now or never
    The ones we are supposed to bow to

    In time we all crawl
    Believe in
    Believe in me

    in this part he's contemplating violence to the new guy he's 'supposed to bow to' without saying anything. Violence idea from the 'in time we all crawl' point, and the 'it's now or never' maybe not violence, but maybe a confrontation of some sort.

    In time we all fall
    Through her fingers

    Pretty self explanatory, he fell through her fingers.

    He wants to hide away under the ocean and not feel what he does, because he doesn't want to pretend to 'feel right' the way he 'has' to.

    'In time we all saw
    Him open up her'

    I'll leave you to figure that one out, haha.

    'SHE'S WHAT I CRAVE'

    he still wants her.

    just my two cents. Great song, it makes me feel good.
