The Way, International

Go spread the word.
Haven't you heard?
Work's not the same.
Time to make a change.

Time marches on,
So get along,
Always aware of the
Chance to go beyond.

For those who've gone,
We carry on.
And those who dread it say,
"Surprised it took so long."

Don't let it be forever!
Everyone should be like you.
Maybe not in quite that context.
Everybody has to find where best they're
Suited, with work that thrills them,
And they don't take too long,
Gaining the sense to know what must get done.

Daring to go where others must help them,
Others dependent on direction,
Needing a magic spell in the air
Working for the ones who care.

I should believe and be a role model,
But its a mood I've not sustained well,
Getting bogged down and weighted with woe, you know
I'll do it if you say it's so.

I'll go along if you're willing
To bear the vaporous burden
Of absolutely insisting.
Then we'll work hard, we will never go home, oh

Don't let it be forever!
Nor sound the false alarm,
Working to say so long, so long.

And since you're gone -- gotta go, gonna see you again. --
Our bridges burn, what, no. We got repetition
It's not the pay; don't you see that there's a meaning to all we do!
Get the phones, we're gonna do it again. We go,
"Oh, Hello! Spread the good news,
Papa's going home after all he's been through. We go,
Oh ho ho! That's a headline,
For this first time --
Just till he finds his
Way to say, so long, so long.
