Steep is the water tower

You could swear the earth just moved
Can't ignore the train
Dust to be kicked up
Idle sinister town
Devil in her shoe
Ran along side the wasted tracks

Some how wedged inside her throat
Can't ignore the train
Patience their virtue
Dungeon life with electric light
Mantle figures mind their place

In a room so beige and cold
Can't ignore the train
Window days saw the children pick their

Starting in the rhymic again

How she fell
Made to dwell
Her grey hair
Sitting in the wishing chair
