From the Album:
* Grab it for a second
Once I dreamed I was falling
Like a feather from a tree
The welcoming committee cheered
Must have been a sight to see
Right there in the middle
Of a sweaty night in Rome
Someone showed a million feathers
How to be a bird on their own
Though we never got to flyin'
I was woken by the phone
I can hear it calling
Get aboard the last train
It's a one way goin' against the grain
It's a one way goin' against the grain
Once I thought I was flyin'
Had a taste of the witches seed
Got me so excited
Couldn't get back on my feet
Then without a warning
Soft whisper in my ear
If you feel like playin' honey
Let's go get out of here
But we never got to playin'
'Cause I passed out
Out of of fear
I can hear it calling
Get aboard the last train
It's a one way goin' against the grain
It's a one way goin' against the grain
It's a one way goin' against the grain
It's a one way goin' against the grain
It's a one way goin' against the grain
