Ticket To Nowhere

Give your ears a taste:

Lyrics By: Robert Hunter

Slow train, stop frame
Slow train, stop frame

Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while
Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while
Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while
Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while

Ticket to nowhere
Nowhere
Ticket to nowhere
Nowhere

I don't know what train I'm on
I don't know what train I'm on
I don't know what train I'm on
I don't know what train I'm on

I want to go where, go where
I want to go where, go where

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know 
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know 
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know 
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know

Slow train, stop frame
Slow train, stop frame

Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while
Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while
Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while
Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while

Ticket to nowhere
Nowhere
Ticket to nowhere
Nowhere

I don't know what train I'm on
I don't know what train I'm on
I don't know what train I'm on
I don't know what train I'm on

I want to go where, 
Go where
I want to go where
You are, you are
Go where
You are, you are

Slow train 
Slow train

The journey of Ticket to Nowhere is propelled along by rhythms taken from the spectrum of the spiral galaxy in the constellation Draco (also heard in Slow Joe Rain) (see Starlight Starbright for descriptions of sonifying spectra of galaxies).

The journey is also influenced by by the shape of data describing the sun’s vibrational nodes (which were also heard in Heartbeat of the Sun).
