Fool’s Train

 

Station Master’s got a schedule in his mind

Decides what trains to run and on what line

Some engineers like the roundhouse

The randomness type

Others like those old spurs

Out on the lonesome lines

All Destinations defined – All aboard the Fool’s Train

 

Love is a fire

Leads the coal car on

Love is a fire

Heats the boiler till it’s gone

 

Tender’s a shovel

Feeds the firebox coal

Tender’s a shovel

Needs no reason to roll

 

And the wheels tick

Along known rails

And the train tricks

Love into travail

 

Boiler’s got water

That burns into steam

Boiler’s got water

Pressure fills the machine

 

Engineer’s orders

To the station down line

Engineer’s orders

Push to make it on time

 

And the wheels tick

Along known rails

And the train tricks

Love into travail

 

Love’s not the engine

Love’s not a stop

Love’s just the reason

The boiler gets hot

 

Love’s not the fuel

Love’s not the payload

Love’s just a rider

On the Fool’s Train

 

On the Fool’s Train

On the Fool’s Train

On the Fool’s Train

 

Love is a fire

Leads the coal car on

Love is a fire

Heats the boiler till it’s gone

 

Whistle’s a caution

To the riders down-rail

Whistle’s a caution

Fool’s train will prevail

 

Love is a fire

On the Fool’s Train

Love is a fire

On the Fool’s Train

Love is a fire

On the Fool’s Train
