Jethro Tull – Locomotive Breath – Lyrics

In the shuffling madness
Of the locomotive breath,
Runs the all, time loser,
Headlong to his death

He feels the piston scraping
Steam breaking on his brow
Old Charlie stole the handle and
The train it won’t stop going

No way to slow down
He sees his children jumping off
At stations, one by one
His woman and his best friend

In bed and having fun
He’s crawling down the corridor
On his hands and knees
Old Charlie stole the handle and

The train it won’t stop going
No way to slow down
He hears the silence howling
Catches angels as they fall

And the all-time winner
Has got him by the balls
He picks up Gideons Bible
Open at page one

I think God He stole the handle and
The train won’t stop going
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
