lyrics

Disco ball windows
Glimmering lanterns
Chrome metal serpent
Stretching twelve city blocks
I'd like to be with you
When the buildings start crumbling
I'd like to be moving on
The Sunset Express

I like when the mountains
Are not made by humans
And the canyons and valleys
Are all covered in grass
I like when your language
Isn't polluted
By the poisonous echoes
Of your ancestors’ past

But the songs that you sing never change
No matter how you try to arrange
The words are different but the thought is the same

The evening is glowin’
An unhealthy crimson
The sunlight is showin’ us
Our fiery path
Steel wheels are rollin’
The skyline’s ablaze
Our unbottled genie
Will have the last laugh

I remember an era
When sunrise was endless
Our worries were whispers
Strewn about by the wind
Do you remember the garden
We raised for our children
Now I'm stuck in this purgatory
On the Sunset Express

The conductor’s in a black robe today
And his glass eyes shimmer with the flames
His voice is a rasp through the filters on his face

Those four tired horsemen
Turned in their tickets
Time to go home now
The work here is done
A look of frustration
Hangs off their faces
We did their job for them
They missed out on the fun

The stars are all out again
Just as ages before
But there's no one to see them
No, not anymore
Train tracks are silent
There’s a night mist’s caress
Only one destination on
The Sunset Express
