"Treasure Train" as written by and Arkenstone Isen....
--all aboard--
hang on, hang on, hang on
hang on, hang on, hang on
hang on, hang on, hang on
hang on, hang on
I took steps
in this mission
to take this tumultuous ride
It's all right
i'm the physician
this medicine will keep me alive
I wouldn't feel, I wouldn't look
and i would rarely care
but there's a small window at the end of this train
i hear something out there
I didn't know and I wouldn't try
I didn't have the need
the sound from the windows is becoming much clearer
that wind'ws a mirror
I see myself
I'm not alone
On this train of jewels and gold
passengers passer-by
strange sparkles in their eyes
then black stars start boiling from my mouth
I WANT TO DIE
on my knees i clutch my face
then glow and come alive
There's...
Lightning: in my hair
Thunder: in my ears
I go so far my head explodes
I'm only half way there
Lightning in the sky
the thunder of the train
diving into a bottomless rift
falling like rain
Lightning in the Sky
thunder in my room
there's no flavor to memories
and memories are moment's doom
hang on, hang on, hang on
hang on, hang on, hang on
hang on, hang on, hang on
hang on, hang on
onto the treasure train
valleys of sorrow and peaks of joy
across an empty plain
the treasure
of the treasure train
ON THE TREASURE TRAIN
ON THE TREASURE TRAIN
WE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME
ON THE TREASURE TRAIN
ON THE TREASURE TRAIN
ON THE TREASURE TRAIN
I GO SO FAR MY HEAD EXPLODES
ON THE TREASURE TRAIN

    General Commentwow horse the band
    the beginning really reminds me of the chili peppers
    jesus the heavy part close to the beginning gets me so pumped

    General CommentActually, treasure train has been described as being life. It's just the ride though life in Nathan's eyes... which could be full of his imaginative craziness as described in the song.

    He believes in people living life to their fullest no matter what it is they choose to do so. This is what Octopus on Fire also represents. Making that change that is necessary to do what you want.

    General Commentwell, you mentioned the band "starting to take off" which I think didn't fit the description.

    General CommentYeah, I agree with Octopus on Fire on this one.
    This song is underrated to me, and I love it. One of my faves off of A Natural Death.

    Also, the Mp3 of this song is awesome, too.

    General CommentHOLY SHIT!
    this song is just flat fucking amazing to me
    by far my favorite on A.N.D.
    i never really knew the lyrics until today and i've been loving this song for over a year (i got it on itunes, so no lyric book D:) so this song was always just a super awesome jam to crank up.
    lol

    and yeah, i agree with Octopus On Fire on this one




    by the way: Octopus On Fire is my favorite on the mechanical hand :D

    General Commentyea octopus on fire has nailed it on this one, even in "i think we are both suffering from the same crushing metaphysical crisis" , nathan makes reference to the train of jewels and gold, which would metaphorically make sense as someones life

    General CommentYou people are idiots. This song is about how the band is really starting to take off and how fame changes everyone. And its about how easy it is to forget where you came from and how important it is to live in the now. "Memories are moment's doom."
