about

This is a rare Tales of Young Robert demo, recorded in our rehearsal room on a 4-track cassette recorder the same night we first heard this new song (written by Stan Schaffer). We only performed the song live a few times, but recording this demo was a helluva lotta fun, and I think it shows.

lyrics

TRAIN - words & music by Stan Schaffer
There's a train to ride; is it heading home?
Nobody knows where it's going; it doesn't tell it on the ticket stub
Someone tore it just like at the movies
Could be "The Orient Express", or from "Wild, Wild West"
Let's hope this train is to freedom ... or something similar
SDI can wave goodbye behind me

"He said it, he said it -- the train of thought misread it"
Cup your ear like you can't hear the siren

One man knows where it's going; one man says he laid the tracks
And wants to be like his friend in the movies
Could be "The Orient Express", or from "Wild, Wild West"
Let's hope this train is to freedom

Will we understand? Will they take all the guns away?
Will we make a stand -- every person, every day?
We will see in time ... if we make the train
There's a train to ride; is it heading home?
Woo-woo ...
