Happy Being / The Happy Train Wreck

Lyrics – Happy Being

N/A : The lyrics for this latst version is saved on my laptop in Spain! I hope I’ll get it back one day so I can record them.

In the meanwhile at least we have the instrumental which is pretty nice plus the original lyrics with a recording uploaded to SoundCloud (scroll to the bottom to play it).

Lyrics – The Happy Train Wreck

Glistening, shining, rolling on countless wheels

Endless evolutions in the industrial revolution

From here to there all around the sphere

Continent crossed in a mechanized motion

Bridging the gap between the east and the west

Enticing engineers to do their ultimate best

Competing in jest and collaborating with zest

Taking their turns to tow trains out to test

The technological train of havoc to wreck

raises its bar in its reach for stars

Shines out its light from all over this speck

of a blue pale dot between Venus and Mars

Reaching the pacific but not so pacific

Covering lands in sprawling steel strands

Technology fueling itself so prolific

An extensive effort to deliver due demands

Get on the track with nothing to fear

Get over the bridge, pass through the junction

Pull on the Jackson, shift into gear

Gawk at the gadgets in synchronous function

Whistling warnings in vapor and smoke

Channeling power from a boiling blaze

Wagons of wares brought forth by coke

Awe-inspiring affairs alarm and amaze

The technological train of havoc to wreck

raises its bar in its reach for stars

Shines out a light from all over this speck

of a blue pale dot between Venus and Mars
