"Golden Train" as written by Alex David Frankel, Crispin Hunt and Chris Glover....
Just like a star that can't be seen from your city at night
You can't build a wall as high, as deep, as mountains have climbed
'cuz these aren't owned, and never will be
So keep going on replacing each
Until the lonely shores retreat
And oceans will find

It happens all the time
An old design that can't be traced
Or shown on walls to contemplate
If ever there was only one escape route
Past the golden train

(you're never lonely) moving through the plains
(never home) ever since it came
(it's just getting harder) we've been living strange
(never alone) and I've forgotten time

As soon as the ghosts return from sleep
There's nothing alive
'cuz you made the roads and mazes deep
For all you can hide
A treasure to keep
And never be shared
To breathe in a fortune as an heir
Until the moon and sun can meet
They'll follow you blind

A never-ending sight
The new recruit to end the war
Has soldiers with, they're sending more
(it happens all the time)
The cavalry is making sure
No one can stop the golden train

(you're never lonely) moving through the plains
(never home) ever since it came
(it's just getting harder, harder, haaa) we've been living strange
(never alone) and I've forgotten time
(it happens all the time)

Lines are built and rails can carry you
(it happens all the time)
Animals are scared and run from men
(it happens all the time)
(girl: there's no need to ever think again)
No one can stop the golden train

Never lonely
(lines are built and rails can carry you)
Never be home
(girl: lines are built and rails can carry you)
(past those who surely bury you)
It's just getting harder, harder, haa
(girl: past those who would surely bury you)
Never alone
(animals are scared and run from men)
Travel lonely
Never be home
(girl: animals are scared and run from men)
(crossed the seas to never think again)
It's just getting harder, harder, haa
Never alone
(girl: crossed the seas to never think again)

It happens all the time

    General CommentI think it's about the war. I'm unsure when it was written. But it mentions the calvary and soldiers. And how they cross the seas to never think again. Like a soldier in the military has no opinions, only what his commanders tell him
