The Lab Rats - Devil's Train lyrics

[Verse 1] My Grand-pops was a man of respect, had to sweat Just to cash checks working from sun-rise to set Every day he'd get challenged, no trades or talents Barely scraped by, he found faith to balance the straight line And pace feeling worn and grey Poor with four seeds, one more on the way It was hard days indeed all work and no play He made sure things on the surface were okay, but Something disturbin' within his mind was lurkin' A slight twilight breeze would ease in through the curtains at night It's like the sermon of a twisted apparition Was urging him to listen to the train in the distance At first it wasn't intense, just one little instance Sure, it didn't occur, he turned to resist it As if it wasn't much more than just a figment of his imagination but for days it was persistent And it went, "follow me, follow me. follow me, follow me" then it got louder "follow me, follow me, I have something to show you" [Verse 2] With time people noticed he was actin berserk Granny got a call saying he was absent from work And that was a first She ran to the pastor at church To ask him what was up with this disastrous curse But bad went to worse He came back three days after, no money in his wallet and his shirt on backwards Stumbling, walked awkward he called out for his daughter Right before he split the last lesson he taught her was this "If you ever have a son let him know that his granddad loves him but by the time that he's grown Be sure this seed is sown deep down into his dome, don't ever ever walk to the train tracks alone" With that he backed up reached out for his jacket Told her not to act up and cracked up laughin' After all that happened he left never to be seen Fifteen years later is when my mother had me Her dad lived a life people can't understand Went from a, family man to rambling man A gambling man that burned both ends of the candle Folded his hand in it was too hot to handle [Hook] Sitting on the tracks waiting for the night train Looking down the road ain't never gonna go back Listen for the whistle through the wind and raindrop Who's gonna ride the devil's train tonight? (x2) [Verse 3] When I was a tot my mom dropped fables and stories To warn me of the dangers that were layin before me To keep it interestin' she would hide the lesson To guide my direction, provide the right message In time I developed a sense of her embellishment Since I was rebellious against what she was tellin me When I was a teen I pretend-ed that my demons were friends I defended the place. yo and that was the case Slurred speech drippin' off of my face The world creeped as I slipped to the awfulest place you could imagine Not the average things you see on acid; My granddad bloody hovering on a speaker cabinet Laughing in a raspy tone, covered in maggots That snacked on his ma** of a bone, I couldn't grasp it Did a double dismount off of the couch, flipped out Broke the closest window I found, then I dipped out Suddenly, I discovered little voices mumbling up in my head It had me wondering what was it my mother said Back when I was younger it had my brain ragged As I stumbled off of the night towards the train tracks [Hook] Sitting on the tracks waiting for the night train Looking down the road ain't never gonna go back Listen for the whistle through the wind and raindrop Who's gonna ride the devil's train tonight? (x2) [Verse 4] So there I was, stalking through the dark with a buzz I figured I should walk that'll ease me off of these d** It's like a shark had to keep movin' it's that or be ruined; If I sat still I was doomed and that wasn't doin' So I marched through the park slow gone(?) like Donnie Darko The sparkle of the starlight, glowed like charcoal Despite my demeanor The night seemed more serene than a morphine fiend in a morgue, it seemed Like I lost it, that was when my grand-pops carca** emerged from the dark Gurggling his words of carnage, but he couldn't talk Something about the birth of sadness I scurried off, I was on the verge of madness I raced fast pace in the landscape was strange like a plane parallel to this one but rearranged Came to a slope to a steep, beggin' for sleep As I climbed up taking my focus off of the creeps Within the foggy distance I saw a silhouette that got bigger as I stepped The train tracks were wet, I saw a shiny grin from afar like it was happy This is what he said as he started to walk pa**ed me "It's a nice night for a walk, would ya mind if I joined you?" "Do what you wanna do" "Well that's great cause I'm going to And not to annoy you but see I really have to ask What a young dude like you's doin out by the tracks? *you waiting on a traaain*" "Nah man let me explain I'm mindin' my business so maybe you should do the same I just been a witness to something sick and sadistic So twistedly disgusting you should feel real lucky you missed it." "Ooh easy with the tongue son, try to listen carefully What you seen's scary but nothing can compared to me I could show you things that paint all your dreams haunted Or I could make you scream if I wanted Or I can be the bee in your bonnet, your best-friend forever Two peas in a pod flocking like birds of a feather And you never have a need to beg work or steal If all this sounds worth it then lets make a deal All you want in life for price of your soul All the money you can fold, power that you can hold I'll put you in control, only if you're down to roll down these train tracks tonight." "But where we gonna go?" [Hook] Sitting on the tracks waiting for the night train Looking down the road ain't never gonna go back Listen for the whistle through the wind and raindrop Who's gonna ride the devil's train tonight? (x2)
