Railroad

How narrow is the gauge

Of the tracks you’re riding on?

How steep the grade

How long the journey?

Are you the engineer

Opening the throttle?

Shall you drive

The bullet train?

Maybe ride instead

The lone caboose

With a view of where

You’ve been?

If you take the sleeper car

You’ll be surprised

At the journey’s end

 

I think I can

I think we can

Leave the tracks behind

Forge a path

Among the trees

Stand silent by a stream

The highway gleams

The whistle blows

The river winds its way

Beneath it all

The earth still turns

Among the stars

Riding the rails of grace

Through the universe
