Sometimes I don't know which side I'm on
Left or right, or right or wrong
I keep enlightened and I read the news
But they write the news, just to keep you confused

Here in the carnival all that survives
Are the echoes of simple and happier times
You make a dollar and you make a dime
But I'm still searching for the simple life

Down the tracks,
You go hanging your head out the window
Looking back,
As your train rushes on to tomorrow

Your daddy, he's an unhappy man
You live a life he can't understand
He keeps you down for your own protection
But he's trying to hide his own fear of rejection

Down the tracks,
You go hanging your head out the window
Looking back,
As your train rushes on to tomorrow

Everybody's out there talking that main street jive
Out on the street dancing for their lives
All laughing and singing as they roll down the track
They don't notice their past catching up real fast
