Alice Cooper – A Runaway Train lyrics

All aboard. Watch your step, people. Last call for The Nightmaaare


I found myself slippin’ away

Just this side of dead.

I woke up in a boxcar,

I wasn’t in my bed.

I found my leg chained to a spike

That ran down through the floor,

Attached to thirteen angry men,

All rotten to the core.

"But I’m innocent," I cried right out,

"I’m in someone else’s dream!"

They looked around and laughed out loud,

Said, "Brother, so are we!

Yeah, brother, so are we!"

"But I’m a big celebrity

Known all ’round the land!"

"Well buddy, you ain’t no one here,

Man, you ain’t in demand."

Speedin’ towards a flamin’ wall

Like a screamin’ sonic boom.

I really gotta wake up now

Or I may meet my doom, oh Lord!

I may meet my doom!

So all that I remember

Is how much my body hurt.

Now I’m sleepin’ in the graveyard

On the wrong side of the dirt.

Now, on the wrong side of the dirt.

Wrong side of the dirt, don’t you know,

I’m on the wrong side of the dirt!
