Comin' into Southbend headin' towards the graveyard shift
Blockin' off the fallen fences with my hardware grip
Watchin' out and waitin' for a signal seen
That could level out the quiet side
And if you say you're lonely
I'm the one you'll find there on the side
Your one and only
And you will know when this deed has died
I was chasin' a ghost, pale and white
And hard to see
The boys in blue from peculiar school
Are hangin' out in the dark and they're lookin' for me
If you say you're lonely
I'm the one you'll find there on the run
Your one and only
And you will know when this deed is done
CHORUS
Somebody's walkin' away
While everybody's ridin' on the snaketrain
Somebody's walkin' away,
While everybody's ridin' on the snaketrain
Remember when the wind would blow
And how warm the sun would feel?
If you say you're lonely
And you can't decide what's fair is fair
You're dreaming only
And I will try and catch you there
CHORUS
