James Varda – This Train Is Lost

James summarises a lot of what I feel particularly after these last couple of years.

This train – the whole of our corrupt culture – is certainly lost. We are being led by a lot of greedy, selfish hypocrites.

Back in the sixties we felt we were building something better. We were dropping out of this empty culture and replacing it with something less destructive and more meaningful.

This Train Is Lost

I’m going to move to another country
Find myself a new name
I’m going to wake up
And shed this skin
I never have felt at home
Anywhere I’ve been
I’m getting off this train
I ain’t gonna ride this train no more

How much is nothing?
How far is nowhere?
They’ll sell you a map
But you’ll never get there
I don’t know what I want
But I know it’s not this
If I pulled love out
The world would cease to exist

I’m getting off this train
I ain’t gonna ride this train no more

Well there’s no danger
Everything is very sure
You get up in the morning
And you walk out the door
All this repetition
That tries to strangle hope
I’m going to chart an unknown river
In a porcelain boat

I’m getting off this train
I ain’t gonna ride this train no more
This train is lost

I'd like to hear from you...
