Lyrics

[Verse 1:]

Another day, another train ride
Going to work, I got my ticket at Hynes
Inbound, underground I descend, a stage dive
I gotta make a stopped car to save time
Headed towards North Station, I’m riding the Green Line
Switch to Park Street to Braintree, make rhymes
Watch people fidgeting or keep to themselves
Coke fiends twitch, speaking to me creepy, now my speakers they be drowing ‘em out
‘Til the train’s speed screech can be drowing ‘em both out
It’s damaging my hearing prematurely, that’s no doubt
“Next stop Copley,” “Boylston,” “Park Street”
Sometimes I’m dozing off partly
With people speaking native talk across from me
Couples is kissing and little kids is watching
Everyone is busy, I’m strolling through life
Hit up the red line, “Doors will open on the right”

[Chorus:]

I get around underground, now how that sound?
In the city I’m the talk of the town
I get around where the rats are found
On the T in the Bean, I’m amongst the crowd
Too many people in Boston
“Hopping on the subway to Downtown Crossing”
Too many people in Boston
“Hopping on the subway to Downtown Crossing”

“Entering Park Street, change here for the Red and Orange Lines”

“Attention passengers, the next Red Line train to Braintree is now approaching”

[Verse 2:]

There’s ads on the subway walls and subway trains
And when we emerge we see them by highways
The tunnel maze becomes above subterranean
Billboards reach the sky into space
I try to stay untainted by craziness
But I gotta zone out just to stay safe
Now the train travels out of the city into the suburb
A scenery change, at what I see I’m concerned
There’s a school bus parking lot two blocks from an army spot
Camouflage cars and kids, this shit’s bizarre
The train switches tracks from Ashmont
The cityscape shrinks and we advance far away
So many strangers got nothing to say
Some give a hint of a smile, some give a hint of pain
Others think they’re bigger than me, yo they’re riding the train
So I close my eyes ‘til I arrive finally

[C:]

With so much stress in our lives, yes, I feel I should drive less
I find when I walk I sigh less
Too many people who drive mind’s digress
If people stop flying the rest would die less, again
With so much stress in our lives, yes, I feel I should drive less
I find when I walk I sigh less
Too many people who drive mind’s digress
If people stop flying the rest would die less

[Verse 3:]

When dinosaurs died off they left back a byproduct
That’s powering skyrockets, now we got live losses
Cowardly psychotics mining to find
3 letters, one “I” / eye like Cyclopses
Some regretting their purchases, just a vessel like surrogates
Just invest in that Irving shit, some recession is permanent
Some are stressing the other end of the current
It’s ground zero when the hero resurfaces
