“Runaway Train” By Soul Asylum – Poem


Another of my Favorite Songs in a Poem that reminds me of the time flies.


Call you up in the middle of the night

There are nightfalls you have to fight.

Like a firefly without a light

Flame kills the moth because it’s bright.

You were there like a blowtorch burning

Hope makes people fools that are hurting.

I was a key that could use a little turning

But the keyholes are deeply imprisoning.

So tired that I couldn’t even sleep

I have no power even to beep.

So many secrets I couldn’t keep

Shared loyalty became a myth.

Promised me I wouldn’t weep

But I couldn’t keep it and breathe.

One more promise I couldn’t keep

I gave up and slipped.

It seems no one can help me now

I am searching for a voice-aloud.

I’m in too deep

I can not wait and sit.

There’s no way out

Like my mind was blown.

This time I have really lead myself astray

Looking for imaginary appreciation’s prey.

Runaway train never going back

There is no time to slack.

Wrong way on a one-way track

Created the unending crack.

Seems like I should be getting somewhere

But I am cycling from home to nowhere.

Somehow I’m neither here nor there

Should I try to go into another sphere?

Can you help me remember how to smile?

My tears died out and I can no anymore cry.

Make it somehow all seem worthwhile

I became someone’s else clay.

How on earth did I get so jaded?

Why am everyone blamed?

Life’s mysteries seem so faded

Voids welcome me and are inevitable.

I can go where no one else can go

In the darkness, there is no one stopped.

I know what no one else knows

I hear the lonely wolves’ howls.

Here I am, just drowning in the rain

I forgot what is joy between pain.

With a ticket for a runaway train

That digs deeper into my brain.

And everything seems cut and dry

I have no memories and I am a stray,

Day and night

Blackness and Light.

Earth and sky

The sea ignited.

Somehow I just don’t believe it

Why should I receive it?

Bought a ticket for a runaway train

I sold myself after to the fiend.

Like a madman laughing at the rain

Dancing under raindrops never again.

A little out of touch, a little insane

I lost my loving heart’s flame.

It’s just easier than dealing with the pain

I think it would be better if I fade.

Runaway train never going back

Wrong way on a one-way track

Seems like I should be getting somewhere

To find me again in the circle anywhere.

Somehow I’m neither here nor there

But after all, nobody does care.

Runaway train never coming back

I tried hard to not be a part of the stack.

Runaway train tearing up the track

I tried to run but I got dragged.

Runaway train burning in my veins

I keep moving but everything fails.

I run away but it always seems the same

Is this the long-awaited and deadly fame?


“Runaway train” by Soul Asylum is my all-time favorite song. It’s deep and shows my way of living, and thinking. That reminds me time never goes back and should be used in the best possible way. The cycle of life nowadays is wicked.

Not finding the answers in the skies generated many new ideas and strategies, which help me to do better in my daily routines. The funniest part is, after I indeed stopped caring for anything, my positivity grew bigger. More love came into my life in various shapes.
