Sometimes I move in chains
But I never feel the pain
I wish I could explain
Sometimes

Sometimes it goes so fast
I try to make some moment last
I watch it slippin' past
Sometimes

I get this infernal need
I'm losin' ground
Gotta make up speed
Right now
Something's there just out of reach
Something I'm not sure I need
Something I just can't let be
Touchin' something deep in me

Sometimes burnin' bright
In the dark heart of the night
I think I see a light
Sometimes

Sometimes I hear the sound
Of some night train leavin' town
I want to chase it down
Sometimes

I want to catch that train
I want to get on board
I want to ride away to some distant shore
Right now
I want to leave behind this hopeless maze
Of broken dreams and endless days
I want to wake up some place far away
I wanna wake up to a brand new day
Sometimes

Sometimes I move in chains
But I never feel the pain
I wish I could explain
Sometimes

Sometimes it goes so fast
I try to make some moment last
I watch it slippin' past
Sometimes

I watch it slippin' past
Sometimes
