i tune my strings to an old electric organ
that sits inside the basement in the dust
it used to sing such sweet and honest hymns
but now its lost the will to speak

its lost its will

i took the train headed eastbound to chicago
just to say that i wasn't alone
but in the eyes of a hundred-thousand strangers
i never felt so far from home

so far from home

turn your wheels you silent giant
and take me somewhere new
turn your wheels you silent giant
and take me somewhere blue

i passed a man perched on a milk-crate in the city
wailing on a saxophone
as i passed, and the music drifted upwards
suddenly i wasn't alone
