I boarded the slow train



Checking the spelling, checking the time
groundhog day all done in mime
I didn't see the visions
of, your next crime
It had fever full of lies
I was just following your cries
I was playing chess
with the great minds
no one else just all alone just sitting
with the sound of the snarls and spitting

Dogs are fed, there's children in pain
I search my head,I'm going insane
I used to be like you
but I boarded the slow train

Seen a face from my long gone past
a time when I was beaten and lashed
just for a second there I, forgot what I'd asked
have to reap what I sow
if I don't know then no one knows
you tell me how to dress up fine
but even the angels know, that's not how it goes
a lot of failure dragging us down
you just stay as you are
with your hellish kind

Dogs are fed, there's children in pain
I search my head,I'm going insane
I used to be like you
but I boarded the slow train

I've spoke to the murderer after doing his time
he couldn't believe the church had been turned to slime
he thought that he'd been in hell
the grace of God was all we had
but what seperates the good from the bad
you and only you are the one man band
thought I should be a sailor of the sea
let it map out my future and my destiny

Dogs are fed, there's children in pain
I search my head,I'm going insane
I used to be like you
but I boarded the slow train

I cry at night, when I'm alone
you can put on a face carved in stone
be hailed and worshiped on your throne
ask your God for your desires
but his truth doesn't satisfy
I'm in love with a world
don't even know it's name
Jimmy and Eck they both sacrificed
I'm left bewildered
with all their pain

Dogs are fed, there's children in pain
I search my head,I'm going insane
I used to be like you
but I boarded the slow train
