Styx - Locomotive Breath



In the shuffling madess

Of the locomotive breath,

Runs the all-time loser,

Headlong to his death.

He feels the piston scraping --

Steam breaking on his brow --

Old charlie stole the handle and

The train won't stop going --

No way to slow down.

He sees his children jumping off

At the stations -- one by one.

His woman and his best friend --

In bed and having fun.

He's crawling down the corridor

On his hands and knees --

Old charlie stole the handle and

The train won't stop going --

No way to slow down.

He hears the silence howling --

Catches angels as they fall.

And the all-time winner

Has got him by the balls.

He picks up gideons bible --

Open at page one --

Old charlie stole the handle and

The train won't stop going --

No way to slow down.
