    Locomotive Breath

    http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...Fz87jzVv-sin3ftiA&sig2=h_I6tM8WsSh1cZsZKDSxMA

    In the shuffling madess
    of the locomotive breath,
    runs the all-time loser,
    headlong to his death.
    He feels the piston scraping --
    steam breaking on his brow --
    old Charlie stole the handle and
    the train won't stop going --
    no way to slow down.
    He sees his children jumping off
    at the stations -- one by one.
    His woman and his best friend --
    in bed and having fun.
    He's crawling down the corridor
    on his hands and knees --
    old Charlie stole the handle and
    the train won't stop going --
    no way to slow down.
    He hears the silence howling --
    catches angels as they fall.
    And the all-time winner
    has got him by the balls.
    He picks up Gideons Bible --
    open at page one --
    old Charlie stole the handle and
    the train won't stop going --
    no way to slow down.

    Put up a tune that you enjoy then, instead of whimpering like roadkill.

    This is one of the most lyrical songs I've heard, It's like poetry (very good poetry.) "It's no reason - The Church (1983) From the Album Seance.

    http://grooveshark.com/#!/album/Seance/1452429

    Crocodile skin water, city shadows wait
    Put your head into your hands, the ending is so great
    Take a ride to sundown, buy a ticket home
    Take all the things I've bought you, leave all the rest alone
    Marble skins turn human, people fade to gray
    Put your head into my hands we'll make them go away
    As you're crying softly, you won't ever be disturbed
    Red on pink, the sun will sink, have you even heard?


    And the colors take me down
    It's no reason to be sad
    And you leave without a sound
    It's no reason to be glad


    Salty tears are wasted, children lie awake
    Put your head into my hands, don't let your spirit break
    Black smoke from the chimneys, white smoke from the hills
    Everything is moving, but we're standing still


    Celebrations fading, boats upon the waves
    Put your head into my hands, trying to be brave
    The carnival has packed up, the storm has left us peace
    Poppies sleep undamaged, we drive into the east

    You are a paradox to me, a senseless maze
    I run around, I'm looking for you all of my days

    The more that you want it, the more that you need it
    The less that it does
    Run out it's rough, too much is enough
    And that's what it was

    I cannot bear to share you, we can't be alone
    You make me drift up and float, and fall like a stone

    The more that I see you, the more that I miss you
    The less that I care
    I know I should try to kiss you goodbye, but
    You're never there

    I've got a nickname for you, I call you weakness
    I get a little strength out too, or is it meekness

    The more that you want it, the more that you need it
    The less that it does
    Run out it's rough, too much is enough
    And that's what it was

    You are a paradox to me, a contradiction
    You're a predicament for me, and a prediction

    The more that I see you, the more that I miss you
    The less that I care
    I know I should try to kiss you goodbye, but
    You're never there

    The more that you want it, the more that you need it
    The less that it does
    Run out it's rough, too much is enough
    And that's what it was
    That's what it was
    That's what it was

    Paradox - The Church

    Track 5 from the CD - The Sound Of Madness (lyrics provided)

    Shinedown - The Crow And The Butterfly

    I painted your room at midnight
    So I’d know yesterday was over
    I put all your books on the top shelf
    Even the one with the four-leaf clover
    Man I’m getting older

    I took all your pictures off the wall
    And wrapped them in a newspaper blanket
    I haven’t slept in what seems like a century
    And now I can barely breathe

    Just like a crow chasing the butterfly
    Dandelions lost in the summer sky
    When you and I were gettin’ high as outer space
    I never thought you’d slip away
    I guess I was just a little too late

    Your words still serenade me
    Your lullabies won't let me sleep
    I’ve never heard such a haunting melody
    Oh it’s killing me
    You know I can barely breathe

    Just like a crow chasing the butterfly
    Dandelions lost in the summer sky
    When you and I were gettin’ high as outer space
    I never thought you’d slip away
    I guess I was just a little too late
    I was just a little too late

    Just like a crow chasing the butterfly
    Dandelions lost in the summer sky
    When you and I were gettin’ high as outer space
    I never thought you’d slip away
    Like a crow chasing the butterfly
    Dandelions lost in the summer sky
    When you and I were gettin’ high as outer space
    I never thought you would slip away
    I guess I was just a little too late
    Ohh... just a little too late
