"One Way Ticket" as written by Daniel Francis Hawkins, Francis Gilles Poullain-patterson and Justin David Hawkins....
It was a dusty old night
And I'm the first to admit it
I'm sure I upset someone
But my memory has chosen to omit it

A tiny voice was telling me
I should cool it
Chewing my face off
Talking absolute rubbish

The first line hit me like a kick in the face
Thought I better have another just in case
Next thing I knew my heart was under attack
Bought a one way ticket to hell

And back!
One Way Ticket to hell and back
Bought a one way ticket to hell and back
One way ticket to hell and back
Bought a one way ticket to hell and back

I'm always trying to keep my vices under wraps
But a coach load of mutes would appear talkative chaps
They seemed fit to join me for a couple of hits
But my septum is in tatters
And I've still got the runs

Burn for a moment then you kick like a mule
Strangers would agree that it was rocket fuel
Several lines are chocking like a glorious game
Bought a one way ticket to hell

And back!
One Way Ticket to hell and back
Bought a one way ticket to hell and back
One way ticket to hell and back
Bought a one way ticket to hell and back

Stick it up your nose! Woohoo!

Always cold repeating myself, except I'm getting slightly louder
Pausing long enough to snort that white powder
Wheels steering off but I'm still on track
Bought a one way ticket to hell

And back!
One way ticket to hell and back (yeah)
Bought a one way ticket to hell and back(ooh yeah)
One way ticket to hell and back,
Bought a one way ticket to hell (oh yeah)

One way ticket to hell and back (woo!)
Bought a one way ticket to hell and back
One way ticket to hell and back,
Bought a one way ticket to hell

    General CommentIt's definately about coke. I'm not sure the kind of spin that's on it, but it's an amazing song that ranks as this generation's Dr. Feelgood.
