Parts Unknown
Words and Music By Anne Stott


I'm riding out on this westbound train
The sun's setting as the platforms change names
Seems I'm leaving for parts unknown
Maybe you left me long ago

There's a stop I've heard of somewhere down the line
It's not on a map you won't see a road sign
The compass you need is on the inside
The fastest way there ain't a straight line

I'm riding out on this westbound train
The sun's setting as the platforms change names
Seems I'm leaving for parts unknown
Maybe you left me long ago

There's a town far away I'm trying to find
Where days start at midnight and heartbreak's a sign
Dreams float through the air ready to be learned
And freedom's free if you can bear the burden

I'm riding out on this westbound train
The sun's setting as the platforms change names
Seems I'm leaving for parts unknown
Maybe you left me long ago

There's a city living in my mind's eye
You can feel it near when dusk hangs in the sky
When we're not here we'll all be there
The price of admission, lay yourself bare

I'm riding out on this westbound train
The sun's setting as the platforms change names
Seems I'm leaving for parts unknown
Maybe you left me long ago
