Don't spend your time going down the track, looking back,
You'll live your life out of whack.
It's just a fact Jack, it's just a simple fact.

Sometimes I go out riding on a runaway train of thought
Give me just a minute to myself, and then I'll give you all the time that I've got.
Right now I'm sitting waiting at the station, waiting for the train.
My ticket done been bought. All I've learned sitting waiting at the station
Is that you can't replace nothing with something you that you don't got.
That's why we go out riding on a...

Chorus
Runaway train of thought
Give me just a minute to myself, and I'll give you all the time that I've got.
I'm on a runaway train of thought.
You never get the time back.
Don't let the train run off the track.

If we could slow down the time, we wouldn't have to go so fast
Through every frame of mind. We could make these moments last.
No matter how much we rewind, we'll never get back the past.
And then we lose track of time, and we gotta step on the gas.

Chorus
Don't spend your time going down the track, looking back,
You'll live your life out of whack.
It's just a fact Jack, it's just a simple fact.
You can't replace nothing with something that you lack.
Don't spend your time going down the track, looking back,
You'll live your life out of whack.
It's just a fact Jack, it's just a simple fact.

And now I'm sitting, waiting at the station, waiting for the next brainwave to arrive.
I gotta ticket in my hand, for no amount of money- understand,
A ticket like that you cannot buy.
I just need to find a quiet place in my mind...
A place where I can rewind.

Chorus
