CRASH THIS TRAIN
Lyrics by Joshua James

I hope you find what you’re lookin for
when it all comes running down
I hope you find it painted black on your window,
or the lips of your lovers frown
Cause if it dies in the cold, when the clouds start to roll.
Is it then that your soul, starts to bleed?

Have you ever seen the President who killed your wounded child?
Or the man that crashed your sisters plane claiming he was sent of god?
And when she died in your arms, late that night in the dark,
did you pray to your God to come home?
Cause it ain’t fair to say, that these tracks are the same.

So god if you can hear me crash this train
said god if you can hear me crash this train.

Now a note to the President, and the Government, and the judges of this place.
We’re still waiting for you to bring our troops home, and clean up that mess you made.
Cause it smells of blood and money and oil across the Iraqi land.
But it seems so easy to blind us with your “United We Stand”

And it ain’t hard to see that this Country ain’t free.

Chorus:

So god if you can hear me crash this train
said god if you can hear me crash this train.

To the mothers and to the fathers who’ve done the best they could.
Cause raising youngins in a messed up world, it ain’t so understood.
So I’ll cover my ears, I’ll my eyes, pretend that loves the same.
with one courts signature, it all becomes erased.

And it ain’t hard to tell,
when its love that we sell.

Chorus:

So god if you can hear me, crash this train
Said god if you can hear me crash this train.
Said God if you can hear me crash this train.
I said my God if you can hear me crash this train.
