Train For Runaways

Where do you go when you have no place to go to?

All aboard the train for runaways,
We'll take you somewhere near or far.
Now it's time to get away,
Guaranteed faster than that stolen car.

Jump on board the train for runaways,
Escape the world of abuse.
We have adventures day by day,
Promised not to be too obtuse.

Get on in the train for runaways,
Now now, don't be shy.
Be it to a city or to a quite bay,
And no more reasons to cry.

Safe inside the train for runaways,
Rest your weary feet.
Keep your stuff out of the way,
So we don't trip and spill your sweets.

Riding on the train for runaways,
Just tell us your next stop.
Watch as you home faded away,
And you avoided all the cops.

Still on the train for runaways,
The loneliness is sinking in.
But anger and guilt keeps you astray,
Your resolve won't cave in.

Traveling on the train for runaways,
A long time has passed.
You saw trees, mountains and waves,
But that was in a distant past.

Getting off the train for runaways,
You end up back at home.
No one was there anyways,
So now, you're still alone.

All aboard the train for runaways,
A journey to anywhere you wish.
Though in the end you might stay,
Endlessly wandering just as you wish.
