Lyrics



Don’t you get in my way

I’m coming through like a freight train

Don’t you get in my way

I’m coming through like a freight train

Time for reflection

Did not see it the first time

Where have you been all these years

Running in circles

Listening to strangers

Too many voices to hear

I’m dreaming again

I’m scheming

Don’t you get in my way

I’m coming through like a freight train

Don’t you get in my way

I’m coming through like a freight train

Too distant, for certain,

Now I think I’m hurtin’

How do you feel everything

Back up from the sewer

and staring at stars

Alice, why did you leave me for so long

I’m dreaming again

I’m scheming

Don’t you get in my way

I’m coming through like a freight train

Don’t you get in my way

I’m coming through like freight train

(spoken)

From the bottom of the looking glass

Though the cream may always rise

Somehow I made it …scarred but …smarter

and I’m never/ going back/ again, no sir

(Not on purpose anyway)

I cried last night for that

girl beneath the black cloud

I did not know her personally but

I do remember seeing her from across the pale charade

Heaven in hell, man, what a parade

She could fly for hours on her magic carpet

Encircle the heart and stab it and stop it

(and there was enough fuel for that bonfire

to last more than a few lifetimes-

I’m convinced that she had already

been hording it for several incarnations)

How long? How long?

Where have you been?

What have you done?

And why do you fearfully from yourself run?

Did you rape? Did you murder?

As a king or a servant

A frustrated nun, a frigid high priestess

A molester of children

A hunter of helpless beasts

Whatever the breach

Brought you to this near and distant place with me

Say goodbye

Say goodbye

To a world where you cannot breathe

To hiding behind unfamiliar skin

To singing songs, never knowing what they mean

Knowledge is power – I never knew me… ‘TIL NOW, ’til now

It’s time to open up that goddamn door

It’s time to find out just what you’re here for

Said it’s time to open up that goddamn door

It’s time to find out just what you’re here for

I’m dreaming again

I’m screaming

Don’t you get in my way

I’m coming through like a freight train

Don’t you get in my way

I’m coming through like a freight train

Don’t you get in my way

I’m coming through like a freight train
