We used to think we only had to try
And gamble on the art of getting by
Oh, turn it into a different way
Where the day takes a guarantee from the night
Making up's not the same as making it right

We listen for a voice that never comes
And separate before the snow's begun
Oh, second guessing the other side
And I do, and I do believe in the right
To make now all we ever have in our sight

Hiding us from the past. Diving into the future
Hiding us from the past. Diving into the future
Taking the only way we know
Taking the only thing that matters
Taking the only way we know
Taking the only thing that matters

So leave the generations with the key
So shake the revelations 'til they're free
Oh, over-riding the second side
'Cos I know, 'cos I know the reasons below
Carry on, carry on the feeling will go

Hiding us from the past. Diving into the future
Hiding us from the past. Diving into the future
Taking the only way we know
Taking the only thing that matters
Taking the only way we know
Taking the only thing that matters

Hiding us from the past. Diving into the future
Hiding us from the past. Diving into the future
Taking the only way we know
Taking the only thing that matters
Taking the only way we know
Taking the only thing that matters

Ah, is it coming in the morning?
Ah, is it coming after all?

Taking the the only way we know
Taking the only thing that matters
Taking the the only way we know
Taking the only thing that matters
Taking the the only way we know
Taking the only thing that matters
Taking the the only way we know
Taking the only thing that matters
