Transcribed from a live performance on february 26, 2000 at the barbican in york, england. the first performance of this new song.
When you been on a fast train And it's goin' off the rails And you can't come back together again You just start breakin' down In the pourin' rain Cause you been on a fast train
When your love has gone away Don't it make you feel so sad And you know I'm returnin' Way into the land And you start breakin' down And go into the pain Cause you been on the fast train
You had to go on the lam Cross into no man's land Ain't nobody here on your wavelength And nobody gonna give you a helpin' hand You just start breakin' down And just go into the sun When you hear that fast train
And you keep movin' along To the sound of the wheels Deep inside your heart you really know You know just how it feels And you start breakin' down And the deserts reign on the fast train
You're way over the line This time you're out of your mind This time you're out of your depth And to the window you crack open Oh but there's nowhere to go There's only sleet and there's snow Keep on movin' on a fast train
You hear they're goin' over the line Oh standin' on the edge of the hill Oh nobody on their wavelength Nobody to give you a helping hand And you start breakin' down When you hear the sound Keep on movin' on a fast train I'm goin' nowhere on a fast train Goin' nowhere Goin' nowhere on a fast train Goin' nowhere on a fast train Fast train Going nowhere Goin nowhere on a fast train To the wasteland To the wasteland On a fast train On a fast train On a fast train I'm goin nowhere I'm goin' nowhere on a fast train Goin' nowhere On a fast train
