The walls are built up stone by stone
The fields divided one by one.
And the train conductor says
"Take a break Driver 8 Driver 8 take a break
We've been on this shift too long"

And the train conductor says
"Take a break Driver 8 Driver 8 take a break
We can reach our destination but we're still a ways away"

I saw a tree house on the outskirts of the farm.
The power lines have floaters so the airplanes won't get snagged.
Bells are ringing through the town again,
Children look up, all they hear is sky-blue, bells ringing
