Beck - Waitin' For A Train lyrics

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
