Album: Let the Dominoes Fall (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Rancid (From their MySpace site): "A continuation of the survival theme of the record. 'Locomotive' is about the journey of life. While the end is the same for all of us, it's the path you take to get there that defines you and there isn't any formula or map to guide you."
