The last of the truly great explorers
I’ve seen all that the world has to show me
But now, the dream grows cold
My life needs a new goal
And I feel something that’s calling me deep in my soul

I feel the pull of the engine, and I hear the clack of the wheels
I see the train as it flows over miles of steel

I could be a truly great conductor
Make sure that the trains run on time
I’ve wandered the world. Now, my path lies before me
In contoured, parallel lines
