Alkaline Trio - Trucks And Trains Lyrics




These days go by like trucks and trains
Some hit so hard you barely feel a thing
Lights out right now back then and forevermore
Lights out left now these robots marching
To the nearest liquor store
There's something green that's leaving town
Always thought it was blue
Always knew I was wrong
Where it goes hell knows
maybe somewhere better than here
And what they say of the grass on the other sides true
Too much time looking up is turning everything blue
Including me - including you
Including you
These times count down like boats and planes
Some wash away in undertow
Some plummet down in flames
Lights out right now back then and forevermore
With sirens on this ambulance is racing
to the west coast shore
There's something blue that's leaving town
We always talked about black we're considering brown
Where it goes hell knows
Maybe somewhere better than here
And what they say of the grass on the other sides true
Too much time looking up's turning everything blue
Including me, including the ocean, including you
Feel the ocean blue
Engulfing you
I view the deep blue sea
It's turning red right in front of me
There's something gray that's leaving town
And it's way beyond me
How it gets off the ground
Where it goes hell knows
Maybe somewhere better than here
And what they say of the grass on the other sides true
Too much time looking ups turning everything blue
Including me, including the pilots, including you

    Trucks and Trains

    Alkaline Trio

    These days go by like trucks and trains
    Some hit so hard you barely feel a thing
    Lights out right now back then and forevermore
    Lights out left now these robots marching

    To the nearest liquor store
    There's something green that's leaving town
    Always thought it was blue
    Always knew I was wrong

    Where it goes hell knows 
    Maybe somewhere better than here
    And what they say of the grass on the other sides true
    Too much time looking up is turning everything blue

    Including me, including you
    Including you
    These times count down like boats and planes
    Some wash away in undertow

    Some plummet down in flames
    Lights out right now back then and forevermore
    With sirens on this ambulance is racing 
    To the west coast shore

    There's something blue that's leaving town
    We always talked about black we're considering brown
    Where it goes hell knows
    Maybe somewhere better than here

    And what they say of the grass on the other sides true
    Too much time looking up's turning everything blue
    Including me, including the ocean, including you
    Feel the ocean blue

    Engulfing you
    I view the deep blue sea
    It's turning red right in front of me
    There's something gray that's leaving town

    And it's way beyond me
    How it gets off the ground
    Where it goes hell knows
    Maybe somewhere better than here

    And what they say of the grass on the other sides true
    Too much time looking ups turning everything blue
    Including me, including the pilots, including you

  3. Fernando Schneider

    Love alk3

    000000010000000

    This is your favorite song I'm guessing

    Fernando Schneider

    one of those for sure

  4. Kyah Kelley

    Such an unappreciated band. I love these guys!

  5. Boromir Of Gondor

    i have this album in my car with my haggard stereo

  6. rdchili69

    @PhilMcCool that doesnt make sense, seeing that a7x and bfmv are so much more popular than this 2-chord band"

    As if that means a fucking thing, what's more popular has nothing to do with actual quality. There are alot of popular musicians who completely suck at music.

  7. Nino Falletta

    I had this album but the disc cracked.

    Kelsey Charles

    My plastic case cracked !

    Nino Falletta

    +Kelsey Charles I got it worse. My fucking CD cracked.

    sukka tonttu

    i got it worse,never had alkaline trios album :c

  8. Martin Mikula

    ..I used to keep playing it on my 13-hour journeys..:)

    Sir, it seems that you may have forgotten to put on a tampon. Please make sure that all your make up kits are present and wipe your vagina before commenting. Thank you.

  10. KhaleesiKara-El

    Oi, I play WoW and I hate those bands. Give me Alkaline Trio any day.
    What a horrid generalisation. I know this is from 2 years ago but it still comes up at the top of the comments feed.

  11. MrPembo101

    I'm such a late member to the alk3 party but by god I'm glad I am a member. Such a consistently great band

  12. sean devine

    really love the bass on the verse

  13. La Resistance

    I WIL LOVE THIS FOREVER!

  14. Boromir Of Gondor

    WHERE IT GOES HELL NOSE

  15. Boromir Of Gondor

    yea dude agreed i own that dvd and its such a landmark for the trio

  16. chicken dinner

    One of the best. I wish there was a live Version. this would have been awesome if was on the Halloween DVD

  17. Bunnie Bombshell

    can i just like this comment a million times?

  18. Bunnie Bombshell

    disturbed isn't that bad, the other two suck shit....but who in their right mind would say anything bad about alkaline trio

  19. Steven Bell

    im 20, ill be listening to this for years to come. i did start listening to it when i was like 14, but thats part of what it makes it awesome.

  20. newthrash1221

    @toolegittooquit55 haha you were home schooled? i guess that coincides with liking a7x. i'll see you in ten years when a7x is a buncha Motley Crue/Poisons making sex tapes and reality shows...and Alkaline Trio is still an awesome band that people still care about.

  21. Hal Turpin

    What a great album

  22. mylifeintheknifetrade

    Easily my favorite Alkaline song.

  23. Matthew Rickard

    I just like the songs. I am confused, is that not allowed anymore?

    Josh Satchell

    its supposed to be a life lesson on the changing of the seasons matt

  24. 201088aa

    i like this song... i don't understand negative opinions, it's one of my favourite on this album

  25. wastedruid

    @toolegittooquit55 You're defending a7x and saying alkaline trio is "stereotypical teen rock shit". go to school and you can see how many kids listen to a7x as opposed to Alkaline Trio.

  26. Phil McCool

    @toolegittooquit55 - I don't know any other bands that sound like this, and I know a lot of bands. By the way, why is it that you search for bands you don't like on youtube? Go listen to some A7X...

  27. Phil McCool

    @toolegittooquit55 - I'd rather listen to musically simplistic songs which are full of sincerity and emotion than bland emotionally-drained songs with "cool" random note tapping solos. A7X etc. are successful (despite their bland recycled melodies) because scene kids want to be liked by their peers so let other people dictate their music taste.

  28. Phil McCool

    @toolegittooquit55 - They're "so much more popular" because they play commerical shite. They sacrifice good music in order to sell CDs and make money. If you don't realise that better music exists than commercial rubbish on TV and radio then you're REALLY missing out.

  29. SOCsaint07

    A7X didn't always suck...but they do now, and hard
    BFMV has always been terrible
    Disturbed was bearable a long time ago but they long since let it go to their head and now they suck as well ' ̄Ŧ ̄'

  30. petgenius

    @PhilMcCool - Make an exception for this WoW player? I agree with the commercial blandness of it all, and would like to add Bring me the Horizon to that list, but I quest with Skiba & co. in the background.

  31. Phil McCool

    @A7XxBFMVxDISTRBD - I have to agree with MrDakotaheer; A7X and BFMV are bland, overproduced commercial shite. The only people who go to their gigs are World Of Warcraft players / Games Workshop customers.

    Nathan Smith

    Phil McCool offspring suck go fuck yourself

  32. ripmalone

    Nah man, this song is sweet.

  33. Nisaras94

    Love this song. So catchy.

  34. Brett Pina
