Track Name: Sitting on a Train
So, sitting on a train
Going home again
Going from one city to another.
Blue light out in the dark
Hear the engine start
Rolling slowly over and under
Tracks of other people's lives
You see them in the light
Going from one station to another
Then, somewhere in the night
Awakening my eyes
A scene that is not home but is familiar
So, sitting on a train
Going home again
Going from one city to another
Blue light out in the dark
See the nighttime start
Coloured in for people who are lying still
They'll be here the next day
But we are on our day
Going from one city to another.
See this country in the dark
The trees like body parts
Crawling out of gullies frozen in the act
Of haunting those who stay
In a place that is too strange
To ever make much sense in the middle of the night
See the lack of rain
Feels like home again
Travelling from Sydney to Melbourne
Signs of other people's lives
Flickering outside
Flickering like eyes in the middle of the night
So, sitting on a train
See the landscape change
Going from one city to another
Blue light out in the dark
See the nighttime start
Coloured in for people who are lying still
They'll be here the next day
But we are on our way
Going from one city to another
Red light out on the plain
See the morning made
Coloured in for people who are waiting here
In a place that shouldn't be
Home to anyone
But is home to every person that I've ever known.
Track Name: Good Women
The good ones know
When to stay home
The good ones know
How to say no
They don't do it too friendly
They don't do it too cold
Good women don't let themselves go.
The good ones don't
Look for a man
The good ones always
Find a man
They do it too early
They don't do it too late
Good women always exfoliate.
And on the outskirts of town
That's where the bad girls go down
They do it too early
They do it too late
We don't stay late at the grave.
You'd better stop your rambling around
Or be that girl you heard about
You better stand up on the alter
You better make that deal
To make it out of this world
In one piece.
