Into the thick of it x3
We're tramping through the bush
On and on, we push
Into the thick of it
But we can't see where we're going
We've made a stellar start to find our jungles heart
But all we'll find is nothing if we can't see where we're going
Into the thick of it (x3)
But we can't see where we're going
Into the thick of it (x3)
But we can't see where we're going (ugh)
The jungle's kind of tricky, the path is never straight
And sometimes there's no path at all, which makes it hard to navigate
Although the jungle's thick, we're moving through it quick
But that won't do us any good if we're going around in circles
Into the thick of it (x3)
We're going 'round in circles
These trees look so familiar
We've been here once before
You're right, except it wasn't once
It was three times or four
Stuck in the thick of it (x3)
We've gone around
