lyrics

Went walking down town to the old record store.
Met a man sitting down on a dusty wooden floor.
He said “I ain't gotta clue what we do this for-
One more day's gonna kill me, even one day more.”

I said, “Mr, I hear, and I feel your pain.
Been walking round these same old streets once again.
Seems to me this life goes on in vain.
He said, “You're preaching to the choir, don't it drive you insane.”

He said trains come through here 100 times an hour, at 100 miles an hour.
It's no joke dear,
Think it's gonna stop? Well you'd better think again.
Check out the schedule up here in your head.
No we don't stop for weekends
Not a single day off.
Once you get on
No you're never getting off.

He said.

The man grabbed a light and drew a cigarette out.
Just in time to hear the shopkeeper shout.
“Outta here, don't want no stinking, scrounging layabouts.”
And as he left I said “I just wish you'd let me hear him out.”

[Chorus]

Now it's been four months, but I'm feeling years behind.
Trains keeping rhythm like clockwork up inside.
And as I spot the old man playing chicken with his time.
I said, “you're right it won't keep quiet in this stupid old head of mine.”

I said trains come through here 100 times an hour, at 100 miles an hour.
It's no joke, hear-
I thought that it would stop, but now I've thought again.
Checked out the schedule up here in my head.
No we don't stop for weekends
Not a single day off.
Now that I'm on
No I'm never getting off.

I said.
