Central Station Blues (Single)

by Grand Atlantic

supported by


Riding on a wave of critical acclaim and hot on the heels of a rapturously-received national tour comes the second single from Grand Atlantic’s ‘Constellations’ album, the supercharged guitar-driven overload of ‘Central Station Blues’. Featuring a percussive intro (deliberately reminiscent of The Stone Roses), a muscular riff that AC/DC would be happy to own, and a sing-along chorus perfect for summer barbeques, ‘Central Station Blues’ is an exuberant anthem par excellence from a band that is at the top of their game. ‘Constellations’ has been hailed as the band’s finest work to date and ‘Central Station Blues’ perfectly captures their new millennium rock attitude. Crunchy guitars circle then collide in unison while a bulletproof rhythm section tear into the song. Perfect for your radio, all summer long.


You bought the ticket now take the ride
It’s still a choice when you can’t decide
Go jump a train to the great divide
You won’t be free if you never try

Well come on, come on
Central Station Blues
Well come on, come on
There’s no time to choose

You seen the sights but they’re all the same
Cover your windows and cheat the day
There was a reason you couldn’t stay
It’s all behind now you’re on the train

Can you be free trapped inside a cage
Take off the chain now before you break
You got the wings but you can’t fly straight
Just like a moth in a hurricane

Take of the mask you criminal
Play back those long lost images
Cash in the chips and taste the end
You don’t deserve to live again

Inside your mind it’s terminal
Feels like a life you never knew
Spell out the pain in syllables
You should’ve stayed invisible
