In the name of pain
(In the name of pain and suffering)
In the name of pain
(In the name of pain and suffering)

There comes a train
(There comes a train)
A long black train [Incomprehensible]
(There comes a train)
Lord, a long black train

Punched from the tunnel
(The tunnel of love is long and lonely)
Engines steaming like a fist
(A fistful of memories)
Into the jolly jaw of morning

Oh baby, it gets smashed
Oh baby, it gets smashed
Oh baby, it gets smashed
Oh baby, it gets smashed
Oh baby, it gets smashed

I kick every goddamn splinter
Into all the lookin' eyes in the world
Into all the laughin' eyes
Of all the girls in the world

She ain't never comin back
She ain't never comin back
She ain't never comin back
She ain't never comin back

Name of the pain is
Name of the pain is
Name of the pain is
Name of the pain is
Name of the pain is
A Train Long-Suffering

On the rails of pain
(On the rails of pain and suffering)
There comes a train
(There comes a Train Long-Suffering)
On rails of pain
(On rails of pain and suffering)
Oh baby, blow its whistle in the rain

Who's the engine driver?
(The engine driver's over yonder)
His name is Memory
(His name is Memory)
Memory is His name
Destination, Misery

A pain and misery
A pain and misery
A pain and misery
A pain and misery
A pain and misery
A pain and misery

Hey, that's a sad lookin sack
That's a sad lookin sack
That's a sad lookin sack

And the name of the pain is
The name of the pain is
The name of the pain is
Ooh, the name of the pain is
The name of the pain is
A Train Long-Suffering

There is a train
(It's got a name)
It's a Train Long-Suffering
Oh, Lord, a train
(A long black train)
Lord, of pain and suffering

Each night so black
(Oh, yeah, so black)
And in the darkness of my sack
I'm missing you baby
(I'm missing you)
And I just dunno what to do?
(Dunno what to do?)

Train Long-Suffering
Train Long-Suffering
Train Long-Suffering
Train Long-Suffering

Well, she ain't never comin back
She ain't never comin back
She ain't never comin back
She ain't never comin back

She ain't never comin back
She ain't never comin back
She ain't never comin back
She ain't never comin back

Train Long-Suffering
Train Long-Suffering
Train Long-Suffering
Train Long-Suffering
Train Long-Suffering
Train Long-Suffering

The name of the pain is
The name of the pain is
The name of the train is
The name of the train is
The name of the train is
A Pain and Suffering
