about

The title track of "Sandwich Express", much like the mystical vehicle it seeks to emulate, is an unpredictable romp through a cosmic landscape of rock and roll genres. Built on the idea that rapidly and suddenly shifting styles mid-song would be "funny", this staple of Iron-E's bombastic live show finally graces the digital-sound-wave-tubes of the internet.

lyrics

(The weight of the days pile
Upon shoulders while
Minds confine the
Machinations of imaginations
To racked prisons
In fact, missions
To emancipate the manufactured fate of
Broken dreams, burst at the seams and
Bring about the means, no more, no less
A fickle fate fighter, a sandwich express
Build up your power, be prepared to explode
Sand ticks the hour, may it be not so
Perpetuate your fate, vicarious flow
Drop a dance on the trigger and...let it go.)

(1, 2, 3, 4!)
Well, there’s a delicatessen where the owner’s confessin’
He’s seen it with his own two eyes
That old town myth accompanied with
A delectable surprise

He told us a tale of a magic rail
About some fantastical train
The passenger seats are made of deli meat
And the condiments are insane

(And we said) H-e-e-e-y!
That sounds pretty great, we must confess
(And we said) W-o-o-a-a-h!
You better
Get outta town
Put a hit on a clown, and
Rip off that frown
‘cause we’re jumping on the Sandwich Express

(1, 2, 3, 4!)
The tomatoes are a’movin’ and the mustard is a’groovin’
Everything is feelin’ fine
The mayonnaise and the hollandaise
Seem to drip to the beat in time

The parrots are a’hootin’ and the whistle is a’tootin’
A particular melodious tune
The bread’s so soft, we’re never gettin’ off
Gonna ride all the way to the moon

(And we said) H-e-e-e-y!
Everything’s happy here, this is the best
(And we said) W-o-o-a-a-h!
You better getcha
Will writin’ done, and
Scream out ya lungs
‘Cause in a bloody mess
The Sandwich Express (just ran somebody over!)

Sandwich Express
Sandwich Express
It’s a Sandwich Express attack
Can’t turn back, rewind, or retrack
Pull a click-click-clack down a hellish track
As a matter of fact
It cannot be stopped
It cannot be topped
It cannot be hopped off
Hack attack, bring a cough
Smoke in the eyes of the deli owner guy
Defy the why, far cry from your other try
Rip the script from your head and try to mean it
Idealize and realize you’ve already seen it

(Say) Hey! x5
That sounds pretty great, we must confess
(And we said) Woah! X5
You better
Get outta town
Put a hit on a clown, and
Rip off that frown
‘cause we’re jumping on the Sandwich Express

Sandwich Express
Sandwich Express
It’s a Sandwich Express to heck
Bring a speck of respect for the muscle of the neck
For holdin’ up and boldin’ up the brain of the wreck
Assault the mind, intrinsic crime
Supreme, absolute, impervious prime
Hold back another crack from the sandwich attack
And the runes will reveal where the pendulum’s at
Bring it
If I give you the words, will you sing it?
If I advance in rank, will you king it?
I suppose he knows it’s a confusing kind of thing it
Shows in his flows that he can only just wing it

(Say) Hey! x5
Everything’s happy here, this is the best
(And we said) Woah! X5
You better getcha
Will writin’ done, and
Scream out ya lungs
‘Cause in a bloody mess
Here
Comes
The
Sandwich
Express!
