Lyrics

RUNAWAY TRAIN
KERRY PATRICK CLARK

When you're searching for the reasons when you question each excuse
When there's more time or tomorrow or we will someday soon
When daddy's too important and mommy's hands are full
You learn you're just another no one in this world

Fire in the boys room children gather 'round
A smiling face is guilty when no one makes a sound
They say consequences happen when you choose to play this game
So they brand you and they label you with names

CHORUS
He's a runaway train, runaway train, runaway train, runaway
He's a runaway train, runaway train, runaway train, runaway

His room is on the eighth floor with a nice view of the park
He can watch the kids play baseball it's lights out after dark
For an hour after lunchtime with some brain behind his desk
He'll try to fix this train before it wrecks

CHORUS
He's a runaway train, runaway train, runaway train, runaway
He's a runaway train, runaway train, runaway train, runaway

BRIDGE
Pencil scars the ceiling Johnny B. was here
November '97 Johnny disappeared

So his family holds the Bible and pictures of their kid
They talk about their sorrow but not of what he did
They just say that he was different never fully understood
But we bought him all the best that money could

CHORUS
He's a runaway train, runaway train, runaway train, runaway
He's a runaway train, runaway train, runaway train, runaway
