Runaway Train

I wasn’t aware of the consequence
When I first stepped on the train
I figured I’d fuel my burning desire
There was no mistake or complaint
As the train began to pick up speed
The energy was too much for me
Yet I carelessly let the train go
Too blinded by ambition to see
This excitement starting to build
There was no way to explain
I had let my inhibitions run wild
I was on my runaway train
This effect so different from when
I was unable to determine my voice
The conductor I had denied me
So that I didn’t have a choice
This passive mood held me back
So I broke free once again
Which is where I’ve found myself
Here on my runaway train
I’m a danger to myself I knew
But the danger was right in my face
It was the reason I found myself
On this high-speed runaway chase
I wanted to stop the wheels in motion
Yet each time I wanted more
I had to stop this running danger
Or denial would be in store
My family raised me right
Even the man who told me no
He felt it wasn’t my place in life
To learn, to see, to grow
Perfection is what I sought at first
And is still what I want to seek
There’s no need to put my life at risk
And make my future quiet and bleak
So as I slam the train’s breaks down
I consider the life that I've found
And rest knowing I've left the train
And now sit on the nice solid ground
