about

A somber reflection on the nature of the afterlife and what awaits us there.

lyrics

When you fall asleep, and wake up in the ground
The skies fall apart and the heavens rain down
You enter your dreams in hopes of fantasy
But all you wake up to is a dark reality

Now look out your window, what do you see?
Another timeless journey along the rolling sea
The tracks roll on forever across this barren land
From the frozen northern wastes to the burning eastern sands

Look out your window, what do you hear?
The lonesome whistle's cry echoes in your ear
We'll go on forever, no one will ever see
As we roll along in silence for all eternity!

The last express...
The last express...

Wake up, wake up
You're living in a dream
All you ever did
Was lie, cheat, and scheme

Well, now that is over
The conductor wants your fare
It came so fast now
Tell me, were you prepared?

Now look out your window, what do you see?
The Express will never stop, no matter how you plead
Your final destination may never even come
Just sit back, relax, and pray that there is one

Look out your window, what do you hear?
A million lost souls screaming in your ear!
The Express goes on forever, no one will ever leave
As it rolls along in silence for all eternity!

The last express...
