  • A train appeared in town one night
    For some of us it changed our lives
    A few of us never saw it coming,
    Then like the fire it disappeared
    It happens at a wonderful age,
    With the traffic lights your mind can change
    We made up rules to follow for good,
    No wonder we're fucked up, some of us did

    Tonight never ends if we never go inside
    The moon is always full
    Your calendar is always pinned on summertime

    Were you planning on staying forever?
    You don't fit in this hole
    Or don't you remember hold your breath
    Walk don't run through the graveyard

    A train appeared in town one night
    For some of us it saved our lives
    A few of us never saw it coming,
    Then like the fire we disappear
    It happens at a wonderful age,
    With the traffic lights your mind can change
    We made up rules to follow for good,
    No wonder we're fucked up, some of us did

    I'm just scared I might never say goodbye
    I won't be around to hold you down,
    Pry open your ears and ask you why

    Were you planning on staying forever?
    You don't fit in this hole
    Or don't you remember hold your breath
    Walk don't run through the graveyard

    Is this why you've worked so hard?
    Is this why you've run so far?
    Same place, same hello, same goodbye

  • Anton from MinskWonderful song.
  • Carly Sue from Parrsboro, NsI don't think this song is so much talking about living for the moment but more so the realization people will have about how life continues on and every one thing must come to an end. I think it displays regret and the perspective that we can not dwell on our loses.
  • Sarah from Toronto, OnProbably my favourite Trio song, not going to lie.
  • Joe from Chicago, IlThis song is called "If We Never Go Inside" Ervo, and Ian this song is sung by Dan Andriano, the bassist.
  • Ervo from Raccoon City, InHey...Ummm. This song is called "Every Thug Needs A Lady"...
  • Ian from Greenfield, MaThis song is awesome. I love the intro to it. And Skiba's voice is perfect for this song.
