Ghost Train, Northern Scotland

from by This Hungry Earth

lyrics

Rain squiggles down the glass
As the countryside slips by
And this slow train slides along

Blank pages of my sketchbooks
Await my restless pen
But I don't know how to begin

I just stare out the windows
Wondering why
I’ve spent all my life
Wondering where the edges lie
And how they overlap as it all slides by

Trains roll through the night
Through darkening hills
And the rain drives down, slants into the steel

I just stare out the windows
Wondering why
I’ve spent all my life
Wondering where the edges lie
And how they overlap as it all slides by

Constellations drip and sigh
Cascade across the sky
While that moon hangs low
And refuses to show
Its other side
Its other side
