Full Steam Ahead

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Hart, Jenkins, Welnick, Mint Juleps, Hussain, Hidalgo, Adepoju

Full steam ahead
Full steam ahead
Full steam ahead
Full steam ahead
Full steam ahead
Full steam ahead
Full steam ahead
Full steam ahead

Read the street like written words
Where fires of anger burn
Been here ten thousand times
When will you ever learn?

Here's the locomotive
Weighing down the track
Once you see what you have seen
There ain't no, no looking back

Full head of steam
Look out the wind blows high
Full head of steam
Grab your hat and wave goodbye
Full head of steam
Look out the wind blows high
Full head of steam
Grab your hat and wave goodbye

You did not ask to come to life
It's just the place you found
Since then it's been full steam ahead
You don't know where you're bound

Full head of steam
Look out the wind blows high
Full head of steam
Hell-bound freight to paradise
Full head of steam
Look out the wind blows high
Full head of steam
Hell-bound freight to paradise

Starlight pouring from a door
Where angels shrink in dread
Jack O' Diamonds walks tonight
His hunger must be fed

Full head of steam
Look out the wind blows high
Full head of steam
Run out of track, we're bound to fly
Full head of steam
Look out the wind blows high
Full head of steam
Run out of track, we're bound to fly

This shot is all you've got
In spite of what they say
Hold on to what you love
Until it's ripped away

Full head of steam
Look out the wind blows high
Full head of steam
Grab your hat and say goodnight
Full head of steam
Hell-bound freight to paradise
Full head of steam
Run out of track, we're bound to fly

Full steam ahead
Full steam ahead
Full steam ahead
Full steam ahead
Full steam ahead
Full steam ahead
Full steam ahead
Full steam ahead
