Runaway train driver (Original: TV Smith)

Lyric

Rattling down the track
on iron wheels.
This is not an exercise,
it's for real.
I'm up here in the rushing wind,
way down there.
This town is just a traffic jam,
you can't walk the streets
or breathe the air.

I'm a runaway train driver.
I'm a runaway train driver.
I'm a runaway train driver,
heading off the rails.

Thundering through the night
with the moon in my eyes.
Out into the daybreak
and a new sunrise.
All I found was loneliness
in the crush of the crowd.
But I'm bound for freedom now.
I've got power and speed,
I'm never slowing down.

I'm a runaway train driver.
I'm a runaway train driver.
I'm a runaway train driver,
heading off the rails.

I am no ordinary vandal, oh no!
Hanging on to the dead man's handle
and I'm never gonna let go,
never gonna let go,
never gonna let go!

This is not the green train!
This is not the green train!
This is not the green train!

I'm pulling this cargo up
and over the top.
It's a loaded son of a gun
with the hammer cocked.
Slow-moving son of a bomb,
soon it's gonna roll.
It's too late to evacuate,
it wouldn't do any good.
Where would you go?

From a runaway train driver.
From a runaway train driver.
I'm a runaway train driver,
heading off the rails.

This is not the green train!
This is not the green train!
This is not the green train!
This is not the green train!
