I want to hop on the last train in the station

You'll know you must have paid your fare

Maybe you've been lying down in the jailhouse
Maybe you are hungry and poor

We are only passengers on the last train to glory
That will soon be long, long gone

I want to hop on the last train in the station
Won't need to get yourself prepared
When you're on the last train to glory
You'll know you're reasonably there
