Back to Driver 8 lyrics

Driver 8

The walls are built up, stone by stone
The fields divided one by one

And the train conductor says
"Take a break driver 8, driver 8 take a break
We've been on this shift too long"

And the train conductor says
"Take a break driver 8, driver 8 take a break
We can reach our destination, but we're still a ways away"

I saw a tree house on the outskirts of the farm
The power lines have floaters so the airplanes won't get snagged
Bells are ringing through the town again
Children look up, all they hear is sky-blue, bells ringing

And the train conductor says
"Take a break driver 8, driver 8 take a break
We can reach our destination, but we're still a ways away
But we're still a ways away"

Way to shield the hated heat
Way to put myself to sleep
Way to shield the hated heat
Way to put myself, my children to sleep

He piloted this song in a plane like that one
She is selling faith on the 'Go Tell Crusade'
Locomotive 8, southern crescent hear the bells ring again
Field to weed is lookin' thin

And the train conductor says
"Take a break driver 8, driver 8 take a break
We've been on this shift too long"

And the train conductor says
"Take a break driver 8, driver 8 take a break
We can reach our destination, but we're still a ways away
But we're still a ways away"
