  • The train's motion
    Untidy echo
    And she pants

    She asked me why I'm here but I come here every night
    Do you need to tell her something? No, I need a place to write
    And as the sea of darkness forms and casts us into night
    You ask me what her name was called but I found it hard to write
    One time I was impaled, forlorn, and thrown into a pile
    I said you know where I'm coming from and she looked me in the eye
    Loverboy, you drown too quick
    You're fading out of sight

    Is it the numb density? Can't even look her in the eye
    Where tiny men have been absorbed for questioning the sky
    To when and where the stars were formed, the glance upon this night
    Lightyears to sit upon and paint us as we lie
    And to think it's us she's wasted on, can't even look her in the eye

    See I've found a new place to mourn, she asked me who died
    Well, if there's a dark uniform, I need a place to hide
    As simple as his faith had gone, the burning of the spire
    And yet he still searched for warmth but it was cold by the fire

    She grips me tight, she grips me tight
    But I still rip at the seams
    I can't sleep at night, never slept at night
    But she still sits in my dreams
    I'm out of sight, so out of sight
    But she sees what I see, she's watching me

    She's still watching me

    She still sees what I see
    The train's motion
    Untidy echo Writer/s: ARCHY IVAN MARSHALL
