Go by Train

I’m walking on a road to the station
the railway the railway station
I have to walk around a lot of people
who are working on a hole in the road.

A train comes rolling in the station
a lot of rooms in a house on wheels
I have to pick a door and choose a carriage
before the house full of rooms moves on.

I’m looking through the train for a story
the memory of railway lines
the people in the train look out the windows
where an image of the world moves by.

The train rolls in another station
another little railway station
in a place where people have to walk around me
I sing a song about a hole in the road.
