“Driver 8” by R.E.M.

Way to shield the hated heat
Way to put myself to sleep

The walls you build 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
(Driver 8) “Take a break, Driver 8
(Driver 8) Driver 8, take a break
We can reach our destination
But we’re still a ways away.”
(But it’s still a ways away)

I saw a treehouse on the outskirts of the farm
The power lines have floaters so the airplanes won’t get snagged
The bells are ringing through the town again
The children look up, all they hear is sky-blue bells ringing

And the train conductor says
(Driver 8) “Take a break, Driver 8
(Driver 8) Driver 8, take a break
We can reach our destination
But we’re still a ways away.”
(But it’s still a ways away)
But we’re still a ways away
(But it’s still a ways away)

He piloted this song in a plane like that one
She is selling faith on the Go Tell crusade
Locomotive 8, Southern Crescent, hear the bells ring again
The field to weed is looking thin

And the train conductor says
(Driver 8) “Take a break, Driver 8
(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.”

(But it’s still a ways away)
But we’re still a ways away
(But it’s still a ways away)
