Wild Locomotive-Music and Lyrics by Cork freelance artist, songwriter and poet

I woke up one day after a hard night where friend Jose Cuervo played a major part silting on the toilet with this song germinating inside my head. I immediately grabbed my guitar, some paper and a pen....

Listen to the Recording

I'm feeling kinda woozy
my brain is throbbing
crawled out of bed
and I'm not going back

a new day has started
the song needs singing
my tongue is fuzzy like a potato sack

hey hey doctor
prescribe for me
another dose of reality
my brain is busted
my throat so cracked
I'll drink the water from a shithouse tap

it's hard to get going
while yesterday is hanging
around my neck
like a monkey's back
my vision is real blurry
like a water cooler slurry
i bang my head
and it just won't crack
i was out partying and going insane
excuse me, have you seen my brain?
yes i did
on the railroad track
just past the bridge
about a half mile back

I'm a wild locomotive
I'm a wild locomotive
I'm a wild wild wild wild wild wild wild locomotive

I'm a wild locomotive
a chugging little steamer
burning up the fire on a virgin track
heading head on for collision
apocalyptic glory
going supernova
and there's no turning back
where's the conductor on this train?
is it just me or we all insane?
this got the makings of a heart attack
too much speed and not enough track

better call my lover
and tell her that you saw me
bronking like a bull
in a china shop
tell her better hurry
the damage is extensive
how long does it take for the spasms to stop?

hey hey doctor
prescribe for me
another dose of reality
my brain is busted
my throat so cracked
I'll drink the water from a shithouse tap

I'm a wild wild wild wild wild wild wild locomotive
I'm a wild wild wild wild wild wild wild locomotive
I'm a wild wild wild wild wild wild wild locomotive

I'm a wild locomotive
a chugging little steamer
burning up the fire on a virgin track
heading head on for collision
apocalyptic glory
going supernova
and there's no turning back
where's the conductor on this train?
is it just me or we all insane?
this got the makings of a heart attack
too much speed and not enough track
too much speed and there's no turning back
too much speed and not enough track

I'm a wild wild wild wild wild wild wild locomotive
I'm a wild wild wild wild wild wild wild locomotive
I'm a wild wild wild wild wild wild wild locomotive
locomotive
