In the shuffling madness of the locomotive breath
Runs the all time loser, head long to his death
He feels the piston scraping, steam breaking on his brow
Old Charlie stole the handle and the train
It won't stop going, no way to slow down

He sees his children jumpin' off at stations, one by one
His woman and his best friend in bed and havin' fun
Oh, he's crawling down the corridor on his hands and knees
Old Charlie stole the handle and the train
It won't stop going, no way to slow down

Hey, hey, [Incomprehensible], ooh
Charlie, Charlie, Charlie

He hears the silence howling, catches angels as they fall
And the all time winner, has got him by the balls
Oh, he picks up Gideons Bible, open at page one
But, God, he stole the handle and the train
It won't stop going, no way to slow down

No way to slow down, no way to slow down
No way to slow down, no way to slow down, yeah
Charlie stole the handle, no way to slow down
No way to slow down, Charlie stole the handle
