the only ones lyrics – the sounds

when i grew up it was different
there was no violence or like other towns
but when i came home from school that night
i saw the cops were on the run
there were kids on the wall reaching up to the sky
like a culture shock of joy
it sent me into a strong fascination
and what’s been lost is back

[chorus]
’cause we were the only ones
darling and me this time it’s going down

you know where i belong
and you know it’s time that we let go
been drifting so far away from home
november came back and all was gone
you know where i belong, my darling
this time it’s going down

when december came i was older
and snow was finally on the ground
soldiers lining up, cameras feeding the world
with pictures that would mark my mind
i heard this woman scream as she was begging for trust
then turning ghost-like behind the court
a shotgun blast, as new years p*ssed
oppression was on the run

[chorus]

they’re going down

you know where i belong
and you know it’s time that we let go
been drifting so far away from home
november came back and all was gone
you know where i belong, my darling
it’s going down
