And the tiredness is still here
And the tiredness is still real
And the tiredness

I don't want to be the one [repeated]
To find out why they came
To play their stupid vicious games
I don't want to be the one
I don't want to be the one
To spend my life looking back
To see the skies turn black
I don't want to be the one
I don't want to be the one

I don't want to be the one [repeated]

    My InterpretationThe lyrics seem, pretty straightforwardly really, to be a lament about being "the one" who, by means of some discovery, heralds the coming of some horrible force; what that force is, human or alien or supernatural, is, however, extremely vague, as is what "they" shall do, or have done, on arrival.
