I’m sitting on a train to Machu Picchu
The passenger car explodes
There’s not enough time to say goodbye
There’s not enough time to know
What’s gone wrong
God have mercy
I believe my heart has failed

Smoke rises through a hole in the roof
The dead say, “fare thee well”

I swear doctor don’t you have anything
Like morphine for this pain
I swear Jesus take me now because I’m about to go insane
I’m looking back at the world as one who is leaving
In a dream coming right outta hell

Smoke rises through a whole in the roof
The dead say, “fare thee well”

No one who is just an observer
The same bell tolls for the served and the server
For the strong, the weak, for the weary, for the brave
Everybody wreck on judgment day
Trains explode, steel flies
And sisters ring the Catholic bells

Smoke rises through a hole in the roof
The dead say, “fare thee well”

Sitting on a train to Machu Picchu,
Passenger car explodes
There’s not enough time to say goodbye
There’s not enough time know
What’s gone wrong,
God have mercy
I believe my heart has failed
Smoke rises through a hole in the roof
The dead say, “fare thee well”
