So many different things you can do with your life
So many different things if you have the time
Give a little more, give it your best shot
on the right track you can't be stopped
All the things I said that I would do
All the brilliant ideas that slipped right through
Sometimes we got to get on and climb aboard
but I was one day late and a dollar short

DON'T MISS THE TRAIN, DON'T MISS THE TRAIN
DON'T MISS THE TRAIN, DON'T MISS THE TRAIN
DON'T MISS THE TRAIN, DON'T MISS THE TRAIN
DON'T MISS THE TRAIN, DON'T MISS THE TRAIN
IT COULD BE THE ONLY CHANCE WE HAVE

Have you ever sat and thought about other things?
Living on the street, hanging by a string
Letting people take away your name
Letting people push you into your grave
What you gotta do is stand up for what is yours
Breaking all the barricades, smash the doors
If the chance comes around to save your life
Remember, opportunity doesn't always knock twice
The decision is ntirely up to you
So don't watch the train just pass right through
There is another time that you will meet in life
But the second visit won't be nice
So now you're walking in your sorrow on lonely tracks
Hoping for the day the train will come back
Light on in the tunnel just up ahead
The train is back but now you're dead...TOO LATE

    General CommentAhh...this song is so great. This is probably my favorite No Use song. It and "On The Outside" give me chills. I'm having trouble deciding what it's about, though. I think he's regretting all the opportunities he blew and how he just let life pass him by. He's encouraging someone else not to do the same thing, and to take opportunities when they come. (Even though the two songs sound nothing alike, it kind of has the same message as "Warning" by Incubus.)
