  • (I've got to get on it)
    (I've got to get on it)
    (I've got to get on it)

    Bodies disengaged our mouths are fleshing over.
    Is this an echo game irises retreating
    To ovals of white.
    The urge to feel your face
    And blood rushing to paint my hand print
    A Frisbee one by one
    Your vinyl on laminate
    Desperate for some kind of contact.

    First train home I've got to get on it
    First train home I've got to get on it
    First train home I've got to get on it
    To Catch to catch to catch catch catch.
    First train home I've got to get on it
    First train home I've got to get on it
    First train home I've got to get on it
    First Train home

    Temporal dead zone where clocks are barely breathing
    Yet no one cares to notice for all the yelling
    All night clamor to hold it together.
    I want to play don't wait forms in the hideaway
    I want to get on with getting on with things
    I want to run in fields paint the kitchen
    And love someone
    And I can't do any of that here can I?

    First train home I've got to get on it
    First train home I've got to get on it
    First train home I've got to get on it
    First Train home

    So what? You've had one too many.
    So what? I'm not that much fun to be with
    So what? You've got a silly hat on
    So what? I didn't want to come here anyway.

    What matters to you doesn't matter matter to me.
    What matters to me doesn't matter matter to you.
    What matters to you doesn't matter matter to them.
    What matters to them it doesn't change anything.

    Got to get on it first train home
    Got to get on it first train home

    First train home I've got to get on it
    (I've got to get on it)
    To catch to catch to catch-catch catch.
    (First train home)
    First train home I've got to get on it
    First train home.
    (First train home)

    To go to go to go
    Get get get get
    Out out out out
