lyrics

I was a black train in an all white station
and now I'm a white train in an all black room

Jesus and propane, both in moderation
I'm nearly a good one.

Help in the heartland, by the lines and lizards
I'm half way to Texas before the animal kicks in

Somedays I see you for your shocked green innards
And those days are easy--

like I got maps of where the
land mines are buried up under the stove pipe
soaked in ammonia and sold for a song
forgive me, Father, I betray my eyesight
grabbing at blankets and trying to belong

I need a freight train full of roots and levers
To show me some large things, like a dinosaur's arm

Alone in the slow lane with a hot blood fever
I pass with my one eye

What the Druids called a query for gods in the prime of their seasons
laughing at small creatures, spiting the moon
far an away without rockets or reasons
I'm an all white train in this all black room
