Dark Train references depression, but don’t hangup. There’s not many of us that haven’t been visited by the darkness. Enjoy this light and dark tune knowing we’re not alone.


I've lived on a razors edge my friends
I've lost on life's stock exchange again and again
I've argued with myself and lost but then again I guess
I must have won
the roller coaster train of life is good if you hold on

Ride life's train hold on
Ride life’s train hold on
Life's tracks they lead to tunnels they're deep and they’re dark
But let's ride life's train though burdened by a heavy heart

I feel I've been the only one in a room who thinks he's mad
I had to take some time to talk to my old dad
He had his own cross to bear he'd just load mine on
The roller coaster train of life is good if you hold on

I've been one to doubt myself though I'm not sure
Not sure that cursing at my TV is a practical cure
Maybe the man in the mirror has a better idea
How to ride the roller coaster train of life away from here
