Tryna get ahead
There’s a train in the station conductor’s not waitin’
So if there’s a seat imma take it
Step out of my old skin, I don’t need it on this side of the tracks
Tryna stay ahead
Keep goin’, keep growin’, keep growing up, keep growing out
Of the old ways, the old smiles and joys
And a voice proclaims you can’t stay in this station

But let me braid dandelions into my hair
And twirl by the light of the moon
Mixing up mischief from midnight to noon
Waxing my wings by a waxing gibbous
Flights of frivolous fancy, mysterious
What can I do to go back to you?

Tryna get ahead
Drag myself out of bed
Guess I misplaced that spring in my step
Let it rust with the other tools in the shed
Tryna stay ahead
Keep goin’, keep sowin’, keep showing up, keep showing off
The new ways, the new smiles and joys
And a voice proclaims you can’t stay in this station

Then one day you’ll cry when you wake up and find
That in Dreamland the pixies rubbed juice on your eyes
And you slept in their valley for the rest of your life
While saplings became strapping pines
And you worked at a job you didn’t like
For everyday nine to five
And you wonder how you let that child die
