Railway Forgotten

Words and music by Seth Warren

A Stone Throw From A Glass House

Your rust-encrusted heart is mine
To have forsaken
Steel wheels jumped over the line
All signals mistaken

Nostalgia and apathy call out
Come with me now, sleep with me now, man
You make your connection and swallow
Roll over the wrong direction

Your moss-covered tracks are mine
Lay down for the trails not taken
Blood-blister, drag down the line
The undergrowth has forsaken

Do you hear the ghosts keep crying?
Walk with us now, dance with us forever
The skull, the stone and the contact
This is our last connection

And now let the Earth reclaim us
Destruction to dust, monuments, rust
There stands here no one to remember
That is how it should be
