Track Name: Theme Song
I'm working all day on the railroad track
I'm gonna earn some money and hurt my back
My eyes are burning and my throat is dry
I'm gonna work this track until the day I die

And when I die before I get back
You can lay me beside this railroad track
And every time a train passes by
You will remember me on the day I died

We are half way stationed
Track Name: Monsters
Let's run, we need to go now
Let's get out of this world we know
Let's go, hold my hand now
There's miles and miles of open road
Don't understand, hold my hand

This world is full of sorrow
This world is full of things that aren't true
This world is full of monsters,
monsters that are chasing me and you
We play along, that's what we do

Poor boy is playing songs,
songs about the places he has been
Poor girl is asking questions,
questions about the things that she has seen
They're lost in a dream

So let's go, because we need to move on
And the only thing that's chasing us, the sun
Let's run, hurry up now
'Cause the road we're gonna go is very long
They'll ask around where we've gone
