You can’t stop what is coming
It’s coming down the line
The conductor seems to be asleep
He can’t stop the train in time
You may think that you can leave the tracks
But you struggle to be free
You may not want to take the blame
But don’t pin it all on me

It’s coming, it’s coming down the line
It don’t make no difference if you think that you’ll be fine
It’s coming, it’s coming down the line
Don’t be afraid, the trains delayed, I know it’s not your time

Sometimes life can run you down
Without no reason why
The friends you made, the place you stayed all withered on the vine
All the money that you made
Won’t matter much in time
Oh I promise it is coming, it’s coming down the line

It’s coming, it’s coming down the line
It don’t make no difference if you think that you’ll be fine
It’s coming, it’s coming down the line
Don’t be afraid, the trains delayed, I know it’s not your time
