“One Way’ Features Wille’s bottleneck guitar and Andy’s thundering drums to create a driving anthem that gets your feet moving and headbanging. The theme in the verses is to highlight many western countries’ questionable foreign policies and propaganda. In the chorus, various leaders are named who have stood for peace as the “One Way.”
