"The Night Train" as written by and Richard Clapton....
Hold on to your dreams
Your dreams are the place where you want to be
I hold on to my dreams
That's the one thing they can't take away from me
Everyday, we struggle against mediocrity
And we can't pay the rent
'Cause the money's all spent
And you really need to get free

Day after day we stare in the face of adversity
You get poked you get shoved
By some guy up above
That's just the way it goes

Riding on the night train
Sometimes you feel it's all a waste of time
Riding on the night train
The enemy is just a state of mind

I feel like a freak
Every moment I work in the factory
Got the wolf at my door
And I don't even know what we do this work for
But I still have a dream, just my girl and me
All we need's a change of scene
They can say what they like
But someday we might
Swim the river, swim to freedom
Take a boat and sail to Eden

Riding on the night train
Sometimes you feel it's all a waste of time
Riding on the night train
The enemy is just a state of mind
