Don't Go Down to the Tracks

lyrics

incessant hum of murder ballads
rang constant in his head
a thunder crash of misfortune
he could barley get out of his bed
they say the remedy's a little lady
but he chose the bottle instead
he saw the writing on the wall
and this is what it said:

don't go down
don't go down to the tracks
don't you listen to the sound the trains make
you'll be gone, but you'll be dead

next town over, ain't no better
his liver took over his head
his heart ain't broken
it's just empty
empty like his bed
flash flood of grief taking over
he's drowning in regret
you can drink all the firewater that you want to
there's still a man that's dead

don't go down
don't go down to the tracks
don't you listen to the sound the trains make
you'll be gone, but you'll be dead

listen here my maties
cause you know this story to be true
you can duck out if you want to
but the devil gonna be right behind you

don't go down
don't go down to the tracks
don't you listen to the sound the trains make
you'll be gone, but you'll be dead
