Or did you just miss your train?

Or did you just miss your train?

I live in a busy busy world
Speed trains, cars and trucks
Keep hooting my peace away.

Mine is a crazy crazy world
Loud music from cheap speakers
Assaulting my two poor ears.

I live in a lonely lonely world
Full of strangers chasing air
In a system made to choke.

I live like most white folk
And rich black people do.
Behind walls and suits and Wii.

I live searching for Love
A mother’s lap, a buddy’s slap
Or you on the other end of the see-saw.

I live to live for Love
So come fill this empty space
Or did you just miss your train?
