Track Name: Freight Train
(Chorus)Just like a freight train rollin
You gota get on, get on
Just like a freight train rollin
You gotta get on, get on
Get on to the next horizon
You gotta go on, go on
Go on see the bright star rising
You gotta grow on, grow on

In the tunnel once again my friend
It’s a very dark place
Feels like it’s the end
But if you reach out you will see the bend
Don’t fail to make the turn now
There’s a lot to learn now

Lies and your cries and the silent good byes
There’s a lot of blame to go around
And people to despise but
The road you choose. You make your mind
Nobody else can heal you
We want to see the real you

(repeat chorus)

In the middle with no ear to lend
I say my prayers and lay back
Gotta take the day back
But we have a job to do now
No more drama no more ego
Gotta follow through now

It goes with the blows. Once a friend now a foe
Let it go. It’ll grow. Gotta reap what you sow
If you follow what you love now
You will rise above now
But you gotta let it out


The bend in the road is not the end of the road
Unless you fail to make the turn
