notes:
 Scream when the train passes overhead.
The Celestial Steam Locomotive.
I try to push on; I'll sleep when I'm dead.
The Celestial Steam Locomotive.

I see the house of a woman in mourning.
Her children are lost in the Shadowland.
Eventually it's time to get on board.
The Celestial Steam Locomotive.

We'll call this a happy medicine trip.
The Celestial Steam Locomotive.
We're content to let the faucet drip.
The Celestial Steam Locomotive.

I see the house of a woman in mourning.
Her children are lost in the Shadowland.
Eventually it's time to get on board.
The Celestial Steam Locomotive.

A train whistle blows in the distant night,
invisible but for the silver starlight.
Voices whisper with excited delight,
and the neighbors, they are the worst...

It's like the smoke from some cosmic conflagration.
The Celestial Steam Locomotive.
There is a spirit in the magic tree.
The Celestial Steam Locomotive.
