lyrics

Backward

Mountain majesty races away from me. All the hills here are landfills. I tried to keep the blinds pulled down, but now this hot view burns through.

Boxcar Maybach diamond studded seats recline. I'm poppin' purple pills by that hand fills. I shot and killed my way to first class, but now these bodies smell so oddly.

Facing backward on this train won't stop it from arriving.
Facing backward on this train won't stop it from arriving.

Now I can recall the cause of the fall. No one can resist an invisible fist. With a white tooth grin shinin', he said, "don't you need more speed?"

We're the ones who wrote the rules and won. But the price of the ticket is the heat of the sun.

Facing backward on this train won't stop it from arriving.
Facing backward on this train won't stop it from arriving.
