Higher Train (Song lyrics)

Higher Train

5/5/06

Now you’re sitting with your shackles on the mystery train of life

Still you carry a demeanour that blazes through the night

The ancient scriptures tell you that the soul is where it’s at

While the rhythm of the city sits alone and dulls the path

You’re tumbling and rolling in your bed while fast a sleep

But when you wake you wonder if the truth is bright or bleak

You’ve reached a point where all your joints are saying one last thing

Oh brother find your reason and get on that higher train

For it can crush the deepest spirit and it neutralizes pain

It makes us lose perspective of why we’re here today

But those moments when the passion connects with the real

Are reminders that the purpose is far greater than our fear?

Looking deep within the darkness, is a journey few will take

Looking for an answer, when the questions are so grey

Hoping for a miracle is weakened by blind faith

But when we trust the strength inside we soon embody fate

Now I was just a poor boy, I didn’t really know the game

I was drawn to impulses, like the flowers are to rain

But when I looked much deeper, of what it all means

I realized so deep inside that the truth is worth the pain

So go on with your life boy, go on just the same

Skimming the waters surface and running from the shame

Disposable society will face its judgment day

But when the final count down comes, will the rubble rise again

Still you’re tumbling and rolling in your bed while fast a sleep

But when you wake you wonder if the truth is bright or bleak

You’ve reached a point where all your joints are saying one last thing

Oh brother find your reason and get on that higher train
