I'm ready...

...ready for the laughing gas !

This is the gift made to me by the shuffle mode on my phone.
I'm back at work for the first time in 5 months and this is what came up when I exited the train. How appropriate... Thanks Bono.

On the same subject, there is this line :

Time is a train
Makes the future, the past
You're standing in the station
Your face pressed up against the glass

I like it but it also puzzles me as the image of "your face pressed up agaisnt the glass" is more linked, in my head, to the passengers of the train, rather than to the people "standing in the station".

Anyone has another interpretation ?
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

It might not be the glass of the train but glass in the station?

But it's odd because if time is a train, and you're not on it, it will leave you behind.

OR - maybe you're standing ON THE TRAIN while the train is IN THE STATION? It's pulled into Zoo Station and you're looking out just before it takes off for the next stop, whatever that is?

Your not taking an active part in your life your just observing it. Your face is pressed up agains the glass because your straining to see the future leaving the station and thus leaving you behind.

Don't miss the train...
Leave the past behind
Get on with your life
