lyrics

Days are workers, immigrants from the future
And when they are done, they are buried under
The rails of a transcontinental roller coaster

The sun, god's ski mask, crosses the land
Upside down prophets are securely locked in
Training the terrain that is still further ahead

But when I forget who I am
I become my own man
And when I forget where I am
I find my homeland

Light opens no windows in the air-conditioned soul
Luxury forgets itself and remembers the feelings that it knows
In the trance of a trans-generational fashion show

The train of knowledge keeps going on and on and on
Though the passengers aboard it have long since missed their stop
And they're getting more and more lost and then more and more afraid to get off
But when I forget who I am
I become my own man
And when I forget where I am
I find my homeland
