It's a fish white belly
A lump in the throat
Razor on the wire
Skin and bone
Piss and blood
In a railroad car
One hundred people
Gypsies queers and David's star

This train is bound for glory
This train is bound for glory
This train is bound for glory
This train

Measure the bones
Count the face
Pull out the teeth
Do you belong to the human race
Doctor doctor
Are you unkind
Do you shock the monkeys
Cover our eyes with clear blue skies

This train is bound for glory
This train is bound for glory
This train is bound for glory now
This train

Here is a dancer
Who has no legs
Here is a healer (here is a teacher who has no face)
Who has no hands (here is a runner who has no feet)
Here is a thinker (here is a builder who has no back)
Who has no head (here is a writer who has no voice)
These are the questions (these are the answers)
Stacked like wood

This train is bound for glory
This train is bound for glory
This train is bound for glory now (this train)

This train is bound for glory (this train gonna carry my mother)
This train is bound for glory (this train gonna carry my father)
This train is bound for glory now (this train gonna carry my sister)
This train (this train gonna carry my brother)

(Here is a teacher) (stacked like wood)
This train gonna carry my sister (here is a healer) (stacked like wood)
This train gonna carry my brother (this is a builder)
This train gonna carry my sister (gypsies queers and David's star)
This train is, this train is bound for glory

These are the questions 
Stacked like wood
These are the answers
Here is potential gone for good
