I snuck upon a train, and through the rain
I heard a trailing police siren.
And yet a hopeful moon I rattled under
Through the towers, smoke, and ruin.

I've got a future planned: a dozen acres
Of the sweetest serene land,
A smart and pretty girl who through a meadow
Every day and night I'll twirl.

Hold me now.
I’ve felt a little lost in the big world lately.
Help me out, or try.

And such a family I will father over
Thanking god for wrongs she'll right.
And when I die, they'll linger sad and long.
All my good friends will sow my body singing love songs.

Hold me now.
I’ve felt a little lost in the big world lately.
Help me out, or try.

Paris and Haiti, the pretty Euphrates, I'll see them all.
You can only be beaten so long.
I'm meek now.
Soon I'm gonna be oh so tall.

Under a rail bridge: a shadow chorus
With its faces barrel-lit.
A lonesome whistle blew,
A little cloud went unwanted toward the moon.

Hold me now.
I’ve felt a little lost in the big world lately.
Help me out, or try.
