Following, in the cold, steps of a stranger
You never know, something could, happen to you, oh the danger
Of playing with toys, that don’t feel the same

I’ll give you something to sing about
You’ll never know
I’ll give you something to sing about
You’ll never know, oh

The sound of the train, dancing in the moonlight
Reminds me of a dream, were I met you inside
That lonesome farmhouse, that deep dark night

The smallest amount of gossip can kill the smartest of men
Many things they wanted couldn’t get sent
I wonder, if they’d figure it out, until then, until then

I’ll give you something to sing about
You’ll never know
I’ll give you something to sing about
You’ll never know

Following, Yes I’m following, following, following, following you down

The story, it fit so well
It could even be true
He actually hoped so
For it might explain the silence
The loneliness emptiness of the sky
Without the world having to be totally vacant of civilization
How else to explain the slaying heaps
That remained of so many radio antennas

Maybe I could decide, on something, I will never hide
Everyone involved, everybody around the night

Bring it on the down low tonight

A haunting sense of special grace and perception
And understanding of nature made up in equal parts of love and learning
The civilization has ended
Many people have died
Adventure on a scale rarely seen in this century
