lyrics

Pardon me, you need to stand back from the yellow line
Pardon me, you need to stand back from the yellow line

Well we've been avoiding the danger that you-know-what could bring
You know you and I can't flee this forever, one day we'll have to try

One over, one under, and one to bring ideas we can't stand
It's over, asunder, unless we take the third rail in our hands

Well this train will keep going nowhere until we make a change or just disembark
But we can get somewhere as long as there's a spark

One over, one under, and one to bring ideas we can't stand
It's over, asunder, unless we take the third rail in our hands

Pardon me, you need to stand back from the yellow line
Please sir, you need to stand back from the yellow line
Why can't we seem to stay back from the yellow line

One station on the line, one car's been left alight
One moment to decide to cross the yellow line
One station on the line, one car's been left alight
One moment to decide to cross

One over, one under, and one to bring ideas we can't stand
It's over, asunder, unless we take the third rail in our hands

One station on the line, one car's been left alight
One moment to decide to cross the yellow line
One station on the line, one car's been left alight
One moment to decide, decide
