Happy Being / The Happy Train Wreck

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
