  • My Grand-pops was a man of respect

  • had to sweat

  • Just to cash checks working from sun-rise to set

  • Every day he'd get challenged

  • no trades or talents

  • Barely scraped by

  • he found faith to balance the straight line

  • And pace feeling worn and grey

  • Poor with four seeds, one more on the way

  • It was hard days indeed all work and no play

  • He made sure things on the surface were okay

  • but

  • Something disturbin' within his mind was lurkin'

  • A slight twilight breeze would ease

  • in through the curtains at night

  • It's like the sermon of a twisted apparition

  • Was urging him to listen to the train in the distance

  • At first it wasn't intense

  • just one little instance

  • Sure, it didn't occur

  • he turned to resist it

  • As if it wasn't much more than just

  • a figment of his imagination

  • but for days it was persistent

  • And it went

  • "follow me, follow me

  • follow me, follow me"

  • then it got louder

  • "follow me, follow me

  • I have something to show you"

  • With time people noticed he was actin berserk

  • Granny got a call saying he was absent from work

  • And that was a first

  • She ran to the pastor at church

  • To ask him what was up with this disastrous curse

  • But bad went to worse

  • He came back three days after

  • no money in his wallet and his shirt on backwards

  • Stumbling

  • walked awkward he called out for his daughter

  • Right before he split the last lesson

  • he taught her was this

  • "If you ever have a son let him know that

  • his granddad loves him

  • but by the time that he's grown

  • Be sure this seed is sown deep down into his dome

  • don't ever ever walk to the train tracks alone"

  • With that he backed up reached out for his jacket

  • Told her not to act up and cracked up laughin'

  • After all that happened he left never to be seen

  • Fifteen years later is when my mother had me

  • Her dad lived a life people can't understand

  • Went from a

  • family man to rambling man

  • A gambling man that burned both ends of the candle

  • Folded his hand in it was too hot to handle

  • Sitting on the tracks waiting for the night train

  • Looking down the road ain't never gonna go back

  • Listen for the whistle through the wind and raindrop

  • Who's gonna ride the devil's train tonight?

  • Sitting on the tracks waiting for the night train

  • Looking down the road ain't never gonna go back

  • Listen for the whistle through the wind and raindrop

  • Who's gonna ride the devil's train tonight?

  • When I was a tot my mom dropped fables and stories

  • To warn me of the dangers that were layin before me

  • To keep it interestin' she would hide the lesson

  • To guide my direction, provide the right message

  • In time I developed a sense of her embellishment

  • Since I was rebellious against what she was tellin me

  • When I was a teen

  • I pretend-ed that my demons were friends

  • I defended the place

  • yo and that was the case

  • Slurred speech drippin' off of my face

  • The world creeped

  • as I slipped to the awfulest place

  • you could imagine

  • Not the average things you see on acid

  • My granddad bloody hovering on a speaker cabinet

  • Laughing in a raspy tone

  • covered in maggots

  • That snacked on his mass of a bone

  • I couldn't grasp it

  • Did a double dismount off of the couch

  • flipped out

  • Broke the closest window I found

  • then I dipped out

  • Suddenly

  • I discovered little voices mumbling up in my head

  • It had me wondering what was it my mother said

  • Back when I was younger it had my brain ragged

  • As I stumbled off of the night towards the train tracks

  • Sitting on the tracks waiting for the night train

  • Looking down the road ain't never gonna go back

  • Listen for the whistle through the wind and raindrop

  • Who's gonna ride the devil's train tonight?

  • Sitting on the tracks waiting for the night train

  • Looking down the road ain't never gonna go back

  • Listen for the whistle through the wind and raindrop

  • Who's gonna ride the devil's train tonight?

  • So there I was

  • stalking through the dark with a buzz

  • I figured I should walk

  • that'll ease me off of these drugs

  • It's like a shark had to keep movin' it's that

  • or be ruined

  • If I sat still I was doomed and that wasn't doin'

  • So I marched through the park

  • slow gone like Donnie Darko

  • The sparkle of the starlight

  • glowed like charcoal

  • Despite my demeanor

  • The night seemed more serene than

  • a morphine fiend in a morgue, it seemed

  • Like I lost it

  • that was when my grand-pops carcass

  • emerged from the dark

  • Gurggling his words of carnage

  • but he couldn't talk

  • Something about the birth of sadness

  • I scurried off

  • I was on the verge of madness

  • I raced fast pace in the landscape was strange

  • like a plane parallel to this one but rearranged

  • Came to a slope to a steep, beggin' for sleep

  • As I climbed up taking my focus off of the creeps

  • Within the foggy distance I saw a silhouette that got

  • bigger as I stepped

  • The train tracks were wet,

  • I saw a shiny grin from afar like it was happy

  • This is what he said as he started to walk passed me

  • "It's a nice night for a walk,

  • would ya mind if I joined you?"

  • "Do what you wanna do"

  • "Well that's great cause I'm going to

  • And not to annoy you but see I really have to ask

  • What a young dude like you's doin out by the tracks?

  • you waiting on a traaain"

  • "Nah man let me explain"

  • "all right"

  • "I'm mindin' my business

  • so maybe you should do the same

  • I just been a witness to something sick and sadistic

  • So twistedly disgusting

  • you should feel real lucky you missed it."

  • "Ooh easy with the tongue son,

  • try to listen carefully

  • What you seen's scary

  • but nothing can compared to

  • *Me*

  • I could show you things

  • that paint all your dreams haunted

  • Or I could make you scream if I wanted

  • Or I can be the b in your body,

  • your best-friend forever

  • Two peas in a pod flocking like birds of a feather

  • And you never have a need to beg work or steal

  • If all this sounds worth it

  • then lets make a deal

  • All you want in life for price of your soul

  • All the money you can fold,

  • power that you can hold

  • I'll put you in control,

  • only if you're down to roll down

  • these train tracks tonight."

  • "But where we gonna go?"

  • Sitting on the tracks waiting for the night train

  • Looking down the road ain't never gonna go back

  • Listen for the whistle through the wind and raindrop

  • Who's gonna ride the devil's train tonight?

  • Sitting on the tracks waiting for the night train

  • Looking down the road ain't never gonna go back

  • Listen for the whistle through the wind and raindrop

  • Who's gonna ride the devil's train tonight?
