Will you shut up
I’ve got something to say
But you just stand there laughing
Right in my face
Don’t waste my time
And I won’t waste yours
But when you’re eyes deep slurring
You won’t know whether to call
Cause you never gave much thought to me at all

You’re sleeping on a subway train
Speeding slowly away
Your destination never came
Now there’s nothing to pay
A different side of your brain is
Speeding slowly away

I’ve seen your face
I know you’re not real
Who’d have thought you’d be caught
Under the wheels
You’ve be stubbed out
Like a cigarette
You’re in the gutter fluttering
Spat out from the mouth
Of old barrels dregs, no one like a bitter taste

You’re sleeping on a subway train
Speeding slowly away
Your destination never came
Now there’s nothing to pay
A different side of your brain is
Speeding slowly away

You’ve woken on a derailed train
Speeding slowly away
Handcuffed to your bitter end
There’s always someone to pay
Always turns out that way
You’re speeding slowly away
Slowly away
You’re speeding slowly away
