lyrics

Moving Trains
(Jim Moginie, Caleb Crosby & Tyler Bryant)

Praise the pioneers
For they know not what they do
They bring their selfish ways
And slash and burn the land

They laid the road and rail
With no witnesses to see
So pull down your black veil
And take a window seat

Moving Trains
Took my heart away
Left me waiting at the station
Standing still
It's the hardest thing
To watch you make your getaway
Moving Trains

She set the trail for high noon
Let no witnesses into the room
To attest to what's been done
To judge the glorious ones

In their fancy clothes
They sailed into the great unknown
Are they just like you?
Or do they stand alone?

Circle the wagons round
Rewrite history now
The truth you'll never find
With a made up mind

Moving Trains
Took my heart away
Left me waiting at the station
Standing still
It's the hardest thing
To watch you make your getaway
(Everybody leaves on) Moving Trains

Set the wheels in motion
Thousand miles of rail
It's easier to run than face the failure
The vultures rule that western sky
Spread their wings and you fly right beside them
You always had a way
From time to time I ran off the tracks
Once you cross that line you can't go back
Forgiveness, it's show business
Tell me honey now what you're gonna do
You can run all you want
You cant outrun you
