lyrics

I'm a train traveling at 2a + x
Got a cargo of nothing except my effects
my track isn't laid yet, my plan is still blurry
but I'm moving too fast to remember to worry

you're a train at point y and you have been for years
held in one spot by your justified fears
you have some wisdom, trajectory notes
But I don't recall ever seeking your vote, no

You are not my source
I am not your project
cause I'm an unstoppable force
and you're an immovable object
I'm an unstoppable force
and you're an immovable object

I'm a train tumbling and making mistakes
but my choices are mine, and that's why I have brakes
collisions, reversals, I keep scraping by
I'd rather be wrong than forget how to try

I'm a train trying to find my own way
you've got a lot of trite nonsense to say
there are things that I do, you think should be addressed
and you say the word proud when you should say impressed

Please get off your horse
This is not your project
cause I'm an unstoppable force
and you're an immovable object
I'm an unstoppable force
and you're an immovable object

You've got tips on locations You've been there before
You think I shouldn't be on my own anymore
I don't want your tips, I don't care that they're free
you've been around, but you've never been me

I'm a train exiting all of known space
your track's in circles inside that old rat race
I don't know where I'm going, though I certainly care
If I win or I fail I hope you aren't there

if you were creative, productive, or smart
if you demonstrated you knew how to art
I would listen, but you barely leave your own station
You've only got mass, I have acceleration

Find your own darn course
You are off this project
cause I'm an unstoppable force
and you're an immovable object
I'm an unstoppable force
and you're an immovable object
