lyrics

the warm trains the back and forth
protect the skin you shed and gave away
when you're wakened by the owl at night
you'll hear the heart the light within your own
and the dreamer that couldn't dream
lost his language lost his thoughts
never been the same
the old cold dark winds
couldn't feel the pain

oh oh oh
oh oh oh I I I
I I
the brain that rides the metro
where have they gone
and all of those folded faces
living in the
television

if i ever told you what i've seen
you'd think i was crazy
i'm having difficulty breathing
suffocation provocation fascist swine
we saw the violets bloom from fields that blazed
assume the shape you're free to crack a smile
and the rain black boom the fear fire rose
flap a wing

oh oh oh
oh oh oh I I I
I I
the brain that rides the metro
the eel that glides elctro
oh oh oh
oh oh oh I I I
I I
the brain that rides the metro
the eel that glides
where do they hide
and all of those thoughtless voices
living in the
television

way underground where silent voices call
way underground where the riders gently fall
and the altar knows the signal's found
the line has broken ground
and altar hears the engine roar
it howls it's shutting down
and they all are skewed
in vain their visions blurred the lines
and they all are skewed
they name they hide
they name they hide

that train is far behind
