On this Brooklyn train.
Face to face.
Move through me.
Won't again see.
A pack of kids gets on board,
They rule the car.
Words and speed,
The sound of the city.
Down below on iron veins,
Rails of mercy
Safe in the body of

Firetrucks and flags.
Of a duop band.
Dance and sing
Part of everything.
A couple of boys,
A mother is watching,
Buys some firetrucks-

Rolling waves of subway trains.
Cross the lives of men,
New York again.
Amid all these others,
And the thread that
And those who rode these
And the others who'll ride this

Sun hits the train as
Nobody speaks,
Remembering all that
And only the living
Riding together on this

Rolling waves of subway trains.
Cross the lives of men,
New York again.
New York again.
