Letra Waitin' For A Train

I'm an alien from another sphere. the thing i like about the earth is the range of colors. fantastic to mundane. brilliant to dull. as i was penetrating the ozone, i perchanced to notice the orange peel-like quality of the light playing upon the... the ocean. i gotta go right now; someone is videotaping me in my spaceship.

All around a water tank
Just a-waitin' for a train
A thousand miles away from home
Just a-waitin' for'n the rain
I walked up to a breakman
Just to give him a line of talk
He said, "if you got money,
I'll see that you don't walk."
"i haven't got a nickel;
Not a penny for to show."
"get off, get off, you railroad bum!"
And he slammed the boxcar door
They let me off in texas
A state i dearly love
The moon, the stars above me... and what else?
