In a village in the hills House buried to the window sills in snow In a prison yard at night An Alsatian barking for the stars to go In the attic of a house In the slats of light which kreep across the room In a forest grove at dawn Where the animals sleep hidden in the gloom
On the 97th floor overlooking Tokyo In Camden road in a second floor flat with Dilworth down below There is only one thing There is only one thing
In a cancer ward where the patients sit Waiting patiently to die In an airplane high above The place you finally left behind
In a cage where only one thing could be free And it's not you and I
In every single place that has ever ever been Hiroshima Los Angeles and each town in between
There is only one thing There is only one thing There is only one THING
In the darkest part of you that you have ever seen In the smile of the child staring at the TV screen In the diary of a priest In the sheets that lie upon his bed Out there amongst the waves And inside your lover's head
There is only one thing There is only one thing There is only one thing There is only one THING...
