A subway car
My things next to me
There is no art
In leaving to see
Sights I’ve never seen
Faces that remain unnamed
But if I am the same man
I’m chasing something already tamed

I have my life in this ticket
Putting my heart in this cable car
And I’m going to run
Till I fall down
I have my life in this ticket now

The jet stream
Lull’s me to sleep
And as I dream
I think of the scene
Where the hero leaves
The love of his life
To save himself the pain
Of seeing her die

Doesn’t matter where
As long as I’m there
Then I’m better than where I was
