Track Name: Off the Rails
Train, you killed a dear friend of mine
Train, couldn't you see that he was blind
Blind drunk
Waiting on the tracks
A little too relaxed

Train, you've got blood on your wheels
Train, I'm gonna tell you how it feels
To lose a dear old friend
You'll never see again

Train, you killed another friend of mine
Tell me train, does this happen all the time
Were you really that sure
He couldn't take it any more

Train, don't ever lure me to your rails
Let me live, even in everything fails
I know you're hiding in your siding
But I'm trying I'm not lying to you
Track Name: On the Take
I take it up and you put it down
Then you ask me if I'm still around
I said take it easy baby
Don't touch the ground
Take a walk baby I'll see you around

I'll see you around
On the take

I bought some time
But I over-paid
I took my time and you took it away
You can't find lost time
In the lost and found
Take a walk baby I'll see you around

I'll see you around
On the take

There's a whole lot of rain
Coming down right now
A whole lot of gold
In that oil slick rainbow on the ground
But somewhere along the way
Some sucker's got to pay
for that oil slick stain and that dirty rain

So I'll see you around
On the take
Maybe uptown
On the take
