Waitin' for a Train

This song is by Beck and appears on the album Stereopathetic Soul Manure (1994).

Original video
I'm an alien from another sphere.
The thing I like about the earth is the range of colors.
Fantastic to mundane. Brilliant to dull.
As I was penetrating the ozone,
I perchanced to notice the orange peel-like
quality of the light playing upon the... the ocean
I gotta go right now
Someone is videotaping me in my spaceship

All around a water tank
Just a-waitin' for a train
A thousand miles away from home
Just a-waitin' for'n the rain

I walked up to a breakman
Just to give him a line of talk
He said, If you got money,
I'll see that you don't walk.

I haven't got a nickel;
Not a penny for to show.
Get off, get off, you railroad bum!
And he slammed the boxcar door

They let me off in Texas
A state I dearly love
The moon, the stars above me
And what else?
