about

track-inspired artwork "the train dancer" by Allison Vanderslice

lyrics

he's coming to town
he's coming on a train
he's got a song in his heart
it's got a new refrain
he's got a melody
on a baby grand
he's got a bottle full of controversy
in his hand
his leather is wrinkled
his boot bottom thin
there will not be no close-up
he's abolished the lens

so buy a ticket to see him
before he goes away
he's only passing through
he's coming on a train

he's the one in the hat
he's the one in the know
he's got a brand new record out
he's a seven man show
he'll sing you a new one
when you requested the old
he'll play you a blue one
when you want rock and roll

he's got the voice of demon
a thousand voices strong
he's the chant of the legion
marching marching marching marching marching
marching on

so buy a ticket to see him
before he's in his grave
he's only passing through
he's coming on a train

his time is not long now
and his body is weak
so hand in your ticket
and go watch the geek
