  • I look at you, then you me
    Hungry and thirsty are we
    Holding the lion's share
    Holding the key
    Holding me back because I'm striving to be

    (Better than you)

    Lock horns, I push and I strive
    Some how I feel more alive
    Bury the need for it
    Bury the seed
    Bury me deep when there's no will to be

    (Better than you)

    Oh, can't stop this train from rolling
    Oh, nothing brings me down
    No, can't stop this train from rolling, no, no, no, no, no
    No, no, forever only no

    Oh, can't stop this train from rolling
    Oh, you can't take it down
    No, never stop this locomotion, no, no, no, no, no, no
    No, you can't bring it down because

    (I'm better than you)

    (Much better than you)

    (Better than you)

    Can't stop this train from rolling

    Forever on and on and on
    Forever on and on, on

    Better than you yeah ha ha
