Oh, I can't believe I slept away the day,
But I ain't gotta thing to do.
And yeah... all that I believe will slowly fade away
If I keep running after you.

It's the eye that deceives you long before the brain,
So what's a boy like me to do?
Yeah all that I believe is slowly changing shape,
But I'm getting closer to the truth.

Just gotta keep this freight train moving slow.

Stop the time and we'll fall.
Without these legs we'd crawl.
Are we strong enough to see this through?
Maybe this just feels right from my lack of insight,
But I think I'm strong enough to fight this through.

And now I hit the clouds to see a world I've never seen.
(There's) No need to run away and start anew.
I know I can't ever be the boy I used to be,
So I've got to do what I know how to do.

Just to keep this freight train moving slow.

I can't give up this time, it's part of life.

I can't believe that this shit happens to good, good people.
But I've got friends to rely on,
And they'll keep the light on in my heart.
This has to be the bigger meaning in a world of evil -
We're meant to see that the white swan is not always the right one for your heart.
