Black and white, the background shifts
Erasing time, retracing steps
What are you going to do?

Before the fall, before the flood
After the sinking feeling and the final cut
What are you going to do?
We're all waiting for you
Doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo

Outbound train is always late
We stay lost inside our day
Inbound train, engine glows
Approaches home, never slows

Outbound train is flashing red
We stay lost inside our head
Inbound train, engine glows
Approaches home, never slows

What are you going to do?
We're all waiting for you
Doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo
