about

Written directly after the disastrous U.S. presidential election, this dystopian track, with Dickens references, is either a very dark song or a call to for coming together and resisting, depending on the listener’s interpretation.

lyrics

All aboard
All you souls in need of saving
All you roads in need of paving, all aboard

Gather ‘round
All you hearts in need of breaking
All you earths in need of quaking, all aboard

Queasy and terrified
That's the normal now
So please won't you verify it with a formal vow

All aboard
There's a train that’s in the station
Come and join the mass migration, all aboard

All aboard
Off the rails across the nation
Don't forget the red carnation, all aboard

And if you're a ghost now
Be careful whom you haunt
Remember your two children: ignorance and want

All aboard
All you tears in need of mending
All you worlds in need of ending, all aboard

All aboard
All you tired, you poor, you hungry
All you lonely, lost, unlucky, all aboard

Come sinner and debtor
Come in and shake my hand
Come in and know me better, man.
