lyrics

Well, it’s a lonely road taking sides with an abstraction
To be loyal to principles and holding reason as your compass
And 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
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 wanna be
I wanna be the engine of the world”
Singing, “I wanna be
I wanna be the engine of the world”

You transcend yourself when devoted to an ideal
You become much more than flesh and bones and impermanence, yeah
Just keep treading on
Steadfast, confident, relentless
Pushing what moves the earth well past the goal, and then keep on going

‘Cause 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 wanna be
I wanna be the engine of the world”
Singing, “I wanna be
I wanna be the engine of the world”

Sing it!

I wanna relieve the shoulders of Atlas
Relieve the shoulders of Atlas
Relieve the shoulders of Atlas
I wanna relieve the shoulders of Atlas
Relieve the shoulders of Atlas
Relieve the shoulders of Atlas
I wanna relieve the shoulders of Atlas
Relieve the shoulders of Atlas
Relieve the shoulders of Atlas
I wanna relieve the shoulders of Atlas
Relieve the shoulders of Atlas
Relieve the shoulders of Atlas

Singing, I wanna be
I wanna be the engine of the world
Sing it!
I wanna be
I’m gonna be the engine of the world
I wanna be
I wanna be the engine of the world
I wanna be
I wanna be the engine of the world
(I wanna be
I wanna be the engine of the world)
I wanna be
I wanna be the engine of the world)

Keep that engine rollin'
Train kept a’rollin’
Keep that engine
Heart and mind
Keep that engine rollin'
Train kept a’rollin’
Keep that engine
Heart and mind
You’ve got to start with yourself, brother
You’ve got to
You’ve got to start with yourself, brother
Said, I wanna relieve the shoulders of Atlas
Relieve the shoulders of Atlas
Prrrrup, dup dup dup
Prrrrup, dubbadeedup
Woo!
