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.

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.
