lyrics

Well, it’s a lonely road taking sides with an abstraction
To be loyal to principles and holding reason as your compass
You’ll find your words bouncing off the walls obstructing progress
It may feel futile but a restlessness prohibits your inaction

A man of mind plowing through the mires of apathy and silence
Through a sea of souls, somnambulant and willing their heads into the sand
They polarize at the sight of any sign of any kind of opposition
They’ll grip their habit tight and kick and scream in separation
So, the only route
The way, it seems
Is to be the change we wish to see
To beat a path and prove it can be followed
Singing, “I want to be the engine of the world.”

You transcend yourself when devoted to an ideal
You become much more than flesh and bones and impermanence
So just keep treading on
Steadfast, confident, relentless
Pushing what moves the earth well past the goal, and then keep on going
Because each one of us holds the torque and key
It’s just a matter of firing it up
And being true to heart and mind in the frontiers of questioning
Singing, “I want to be the engine of the world.”

I want to relieve the shoulders of Atlas
I want to be the engine of the world
