Lyrics:
I’m moving forward and I’m moving fast
Nevermind the camera with the landscape all a blur

I don’t know where I’m going but I’m making real good time
All of these eastern trains go a million miles an hour

I’m still in transit in the orient
I’m still in transit in the orient

As we speed by and old man sat pointing at a sign
mumbling something to me but what does it mean?

I think I would be there now if I spoke some Japanese
Instead I’m hearing laughter when I try to form certain words

My patience is slipping and the sake gone to my head
Sitting on this eastern train going a million miles an hour

I’m still in transit in the orient
I’m still in transit in the orient

    Ten years after I discovered this song in Ampcast I am still listening to it.

    Thanks. I forgot this was on Ampcast. This is a newer mix. I tried to clean it up a bit from the original 8-track.
