  • Lyrics: Dust and Steam Lyrics Verse 1: Your wicks at both ends finally meet Wax can put up with only so much heat Work will wait, You can’t go on at this pace Chorus: You’re running down tracks with splintered beams You beg for rest and sweeter dreams, like a starving chef who just won’t eat And your parts fall off, piece by piece, with the weight of stress and no relief Til’ there’s nothing left but dust and steam, dust and steam Verse 2: How long can you go on this way Hearts can hold up with only so much weight This can’t last, you must slow down or soon you’ll crash Chorus: Bridge: The mustache conductor yells faster and faster and faster and faster And down you go Pre-chorus: For God’s sake, please shut it down before you break Chorus: You’re running down tracks with splintered beams You beg for rest and sweeter dreams, like a starving chef who just won’t eat And your parts fall off, piece by piece, with the weight of stress and no relief Now there’s nothing left but dust and steam Yeah you’re running down tracks with splintered beams You beg for rest and sweeter dreams, like a starving chef who just won’t eat And your parts fall off, piece by piece, with the weight of stress and no relief Now there’s nothing left but dust and steam, dust and steam
