I found a picture of you, ohh oh oh ohh ohhh
Oh, what hijacked my world that night?
To a place in the past we've been cast out of, ohh oh oh ohh ohhh oh
now we're back in the fight

We're back on the train, yeah
Oh, oh, back on the chain gang

Circumstance beyond our control, ohh oh oh ohh ohhh oh
the phone, the TV, and the news of the world
Got in your house like a pigeon from hell, ohh oh oh ohh ohhh oh
threw sand in our eyes, and descended like flies

Put us back on the train, yeah
Ohhh, ohhhhhhhh
Back on the chain gang

Guitar solo:


The powers that be that force us to live like we do
Bring me to my knees when I see what they've done to you

And will I die as I stand here today, knowing that deep in my heart
They'll fall to ruin one day, for making us part

I found a picture of you, ohh oh oh ohh ohhh oh,
those were the happiest days of my life
Like a break in the battle was your part, ohh oh oh ohh ohhh oh,
in the wretched life of a lonely heart

Now we're back on the train, yeah
Oh, oh, back on the chain gang
