Don't Wanna Be The One

Written by Hirst/Garrett/Rotsey/Moginie

Duration 3:04

From the album Place Without A Postcard and 20 000 Watt RSL

I'm an innocent victim, I'm just like you
We end up in home units with a brick wall view
I can't believe the perfect families on my colour TV
If I don't make it to the top it'll never bother me

And I don't wanna be the one
And I don't wanna be the one

I'm an innocent bystander caught in the path
Waiting out the back while the corporate attack
Assaults the senses with relentless scenes of passion and delight
I cut up all the options and went running for my life
