I can't find a better reason
to run outside and start screamin
I start out frantic and panicked from the start
terrible discomfort from my fast beating heart
no matter what I say they all turn away

nobody wants to listen today
is it the way that I look or the way that I sound?
This terrible warning I beg is profound
I have great knowledge and insight to tell
this world is soon going to be hell

I grab onto a stranger's should begging him to listen
he pushes me down telling me not to touch him
as the rain falls from the sky in a dreadful glisten
I lay on the pavement soaked and cold
completely dumb found that no one wants to be told

it's the trains it's the trees
it's the cold north wind breeze
everything is see is a warning to me
this all feels wrong none of this can be real
after the dream that I had I don't know what to feel

the highway behind and steel tracks out front
the free way to my left and Blaine a city to stunt
lights in the skies and dirt down below
no matter which way I look there's nowhere to go
the light rail! Yes the light rail with a tunnel down below

I go back to my room where it is a mess
I need to get packed and find out how to dress
stuff little of what I own into one little bag
leave behind everything else that I had
run down the street to where the trains are to meet

roll my eyes to the back of my head
if I don't help we'll all be dead
these thoughts run through my mind
as I run down 3rd st and 61st ave

down to the station underground hall
trying to warn people and remain calm
I got to tell the people now - I have to tell the people now

the less the people listen the more frantic I get
I keep trying nearly yelling no one is listening yet
from person to person I try to warn them
then I realize I I got the wrong attention

the officer drew close and I tried to run
I didn't get far,got tackled to the ground
handcuffed and taken to the far end of town...
