Bryan Scary – The Little Engine Who Couldn't (Think Straight) lyrics

And here I am
Day after day
I used to be a speed demon
But they threw me away

Now I'm stuck here all alone
In the middle of a field
The Birds and the Trees, Swayin'
Made a mess out of me
And I'm sayin' -

There's music in the way the weather hits my rusty coat
But I don't give a damn without a place to go
I could have shot across the mountainside
An open country fate
But instead they say that I'm the Little Engine Who Couldn't Think Straight

And I can hear them saying:

"We heard about this Little Engine of the North
We heard he drove a hundred men into the ocean
Can you believe this Little Engine?
What a foolish Little Engine! "

And even though I'm all alone
And those are voices in my head
I can still hear their hearts stop beating
I can still see their tears start falling

The water's deep and freezing
And I'm leaning on a rock
Floating past the dead I see a ticking clock
Saying time is up my friend
Take a bow and leave the stage
Cause forever says you're now the Little Engine Who Couldn't Think Straight

And they'll never stop saying:

"We heard about this Little Engine of the North
We heard he drove a hundred men into the ocean
Can you believe this Little Engine?
What a foolish Little Engine!
Kill him!!!! "

Maybe one day they'll forgive
And try me out again
Until then I'll just sit here waiting
A scrap of metal trash they've created

-Interlude-

The Shredding Tears Have Come to Play
On the Stage
A Little Song of Light and Sound
Oh!
Can you see 'em spinning 'round?
Oh!
A Little Song of Light and Sound!
