A small cute train
on a circulary trail.
The station it will never reach,
the captain is insane.

The railway leads up in the sky,
around the villages are small.
The passengers fear for their lives,
but they need the speed to go.

Dear travelers,
don´t open the windows,
the air up here is thin and cold.
And they are stuck anyway,
the golden framing is set to hold.

And for your entertainment
we have prepared an onboard contest show.
It´s just a lone small game
to keep the oven glow.

Grow out of your pants and dance,
prepare a smile out of coal.
Weep to the left and right
to keep the train under control.

The days up here are bright as night
and other trains are scarce.
The passions on this lonely track
show them all the way they are.

And people looking at the train,
their gazes, excited and amused.
Through milky glass they grasp
the flames of dancing shapes.
Vanishing as they arise,
it´s the train of one-way chance.
