Train Window

Francis Pete

You left the island
Well I guess you had to go away today (2x)

Graffiti walls pass through your brow
Pipes cover your nose
Power lines rise and drop above you
And foliage turns in your brain
In a train window
In a train window

Looking closer into the glass
You see a wise chipped tooth
Yellow paint in the kitchen
And stoves in the driveway

The newspaper falls on your lap
Ink drops run from your eyes

You have read too much
Read too much
Read too much

Now you're moving through the rain
In a train window
In a train window

Have you passed another day
You say it easy away

On your train... 
Train stopped at your station
Lining shadows fence in your face
A woman walks through you
Doors open and you leave
And you leave
