City got the best of me
Color so tight, and there's no air to breathe
Mama gave me dancing legs
Oh mama my, mama don't cry

Sure I got short-changed
Time I got my aim like "fuck cocaine"
Check out the boom zoom, I aim stead
I know you feel the same, I'm not alone

I'll be straight with you on the train
They'll never believe it now, we're on our way
I ain't goin' back again
I need it like a hole in my vein, a hole in my vein

I'll be straight with you on the train
They'll never believe it now, we're on our way
I ain't goin' back again
I need you like a hole in my vein, a hole in my vein

God, he been testin' me
He'd been down, I just need a cool breeze
Papa gave me heart and soul
Oh papa I, papa I try

Here no one gives a damn
Time I got my swerve I'm a reborn man
I don't belong here, I ain't stayin'
I know you feel the same, you're not alone

I'll be straight with you on the train
They'll never believe it now, we're on our way
Won't ain't goin' back again
I need it like a hole in my vein, a hole in my vein

I'll be straight with you on the train
They'll never believe it now, we're on our way
I ain't goin' back again
I need you like a hole in my vein, a hole in my vein

I don't belong, I got nothing to prove
I'm on the train now, I'm making my move
I don't belong, I got nothing to prove
But I'm on the train now, I'm making my move

Get me on the train
Baby won't you get me on the train
Get me on the train
I gotta get out, gotta get out, gotta get out of here

I'm on the train, I'm on the train now
