Last Train to Heaven

The train pulled out of the
Clouds singing

I asked the conductor for
Some change

He said    "son    don't you know?
Nobody's payin'"

I said   "sure        but the stoplight is


Thunder and lightnin'
Lit the outline       of faces I had


Not      one 
Knew the tune

Playin' in my head

I'm sure I saw the face

Mother Theresa

A smile       I thought

Just around the

About then     the ride came

To a tumblin'


Next thing I knew    choirs were

And butterflies       up in

My head

The fields                    they went on


And sunshine       from who
Knows where

My soul       what was left                   just

Started                                                     dancing'

And prayers        once          just     words
                                                                      shooting stars

"You see"
I said                    "no one is listening"

That's when I knew

The time had come
