Lying in an open field a fear came over me
Would I ever see this world again
I felt rain on my cheekbones but my eyes they could not see
Signs to show the storm had ever been

Stranger in a suit coat asked me if knew the time
I somehow felt the irony set in
I told him I could not move this old body I called mine
And I would not be traveling with him

La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la

Suddenly I heard the thund'rin train
Felt the wind blow around my grave
And I feel alive

Traveling in an open car my past no longer near
Would I ever see this world again
I felt the wheels move but my ears they could not hear
Words to know that I had ever been

I felt my wristwatch choke me yet I lost a sense of time
An overwhelming vertigo set in
I couldn't break the window or get me off this railroad line
This train and I would go on tumblin

La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la

Suddenly I heard the thund'rin train
Felt the wind blow around my grave
And I feel alive

A surrealistic journey that I questioned if it's real
Would I ever see this world again
I sensed that I was torpid for my hands they could not feel
Anything I thought had ever been

Lying in an open field my eyes no longer sealed
I saw the world I never could befriend
Checking myself over my wounds had never healed
And I would not be travelling again

La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
