A rootsy guitar ditty warning about the perils of climbing off the wagon.


You hear the clock striking twelve in the village below.
Make out the shape of some train in the soft moon-light glow.
Your hands start to tremble,
your feet strangely drawn to the track.
But if you climb on that train boy,
you know that you'll never come back.

Drown in the music, let the beat pound out the pain.
Don't walk that tightrope over the black-hole again.
You dream of the leather,
you're veins bulging under that strap.
But if you climb aboard boy,
you know that you'll never come back.

It might take years before you find some kind of peace.
The most people hope for is some quiet form of release.
You hear that voice and the
cords 'round you heart come unwrapped.
But if you go down that road son,
you know that you'll never come back.
If you ride that train boy,
you know that you'll never come back.
