lyrics

I find myself running behind the train
That is carrying all of my dreams away from me.
I wish this were a dream, and I wish that I could wake up
To a nice hot meal on the train.

But I'm constantly running behind the train
And I can't stop stepping on the turtle shells
That are slippery from the rain.
I wish I had a chance to help this world advance
But I'm useless if I can't catch up to that train.

My friends all pass me by,
Riding horses of green and white
And I watch them dismount and step onto that train.
And my girl is reaching out to me
From a window that I cannot see
But I slip again and fall
Further behind the train.

I'm desperately running behind the train.
There's a band on the roof but I can't hear what they're playin'
Through the wind and the thunder and the rain
I see a silhouette in a flash of lightning
And it looks an awful lot like a shadow of me.

But I'm frantically running behind the train.
It's too dark to see but I hear them calling my name.
For that I can't give up,
But I know I'm not fast enough,
So now I'm just a fool that jumped off of that train.

And my family is on that train,
They have found their seats
And are out of the rain
And as they wonder where I am,
I'm screaming behind the train.
My future is on that train,
It shot me in the back and ran off with my brain.
But my debt I will collect if I can just get on that train.

But I'm too weak from running behind the train.
Every time I speak I only put myself to shame.
And if there's a god in the skies,
I'd like him to apologize,
But in the end I know it's only me I have to blame.

Here I am, running behind the train.
It feels like my whole life has been lived in vain.
I want my friends, I want my dreams
I want my girl, I want my family
But they're all on a train that my future stole away from me.

I want my friends, I want my dreams
I want my girl, I want my family
But they're all on a train that my future stole away from me.
