The train was leaving at 10 after 10
I got to the station just in time to check in
I've been luggin' my bags all around
I'm trying hard to never knock people down
But I see I left a few on the ground
And as the train pulls away I can hear the conductor say
Right track wrong train (echoes)
Right track wrong train (echoes)
I'm not to blame (echo)
Right track wrong train... train
I read my schedule but my train wasn't there
They read my ticket, it said going nowhere
Everybody had the same tatooed face
All the women and men just dressed in lace
Oh I gotta get out of this place
Should got off before the engineer locked the door
Right track wrong train (echoes)
Right track wrong train (echoes)
I'm not to blame (echo)
Right track wrong train, train train train hey !
"Hey that's a neat tatoo you're wearing. By the way where'd you get it ?
Uh huh. Say is this an express train ? Uh huh.
Snack bar ? Uh huh. Uh huh."
Something is happening so familiar to me
Is this the outer limits like on TV ?
Another empty town fading to gray
Another open home sign on the way
Have a cup of coffee, have a nice day
And as the train pushes off,
We're headed for Babylon
Oh no...
Right track wrong train (echoes)
Right track wrong train (echoes)
Right track wrong train...
On the wrong train on the right track
We don't know if she'll ever come back
(Talking) What train is this ?
Something is happening so familiar to me
Is this the outer limits like on tv ?
Have a cup of coffe, have a nice day (talking)
"Yeah, yeah I'll be right there yeah. I'm gonna get the next train
Yeah."
