Rumbling loud, those wheels on steel;
Hurtling down, like the sun on me
Burns, sears into the tissues
Hidden; it vibrates within my shoes.
Save me, hurtling train, take me home.
The train to nowhere, open your doors.
Let’s seek faraway lands together,
Take me away, away, farther and farther.
Grows the sun’s noise in my head
Oh, take this off, this strait jacket
I am not mad; why don’t you hear me scream?
Have you all been deafened by the sun’s heat?
The rumble comes closer, oh, so near,
Give me a place for my head, you hear?
The wheels are rolling, the sun beats down,
No matter. The steel is cool; I’m home now.
