Storyteller I, 2004

It’s a long long long train ride, with a baby
Deep deep into the night, with her baby
Nothing but black emptiness outside
Mind numbing hours before she arrives
With her baby

The train just drones its way along through the prairie
Train driver hums without a song through the prairie
His coffee stale as the cabin air
He takes a sip and does not care
He’s half crazy

The town’s asleep as the train rolls by, nobody’s watching.
Another empty nighttime sky over restless dreaming
They know the train will lead somewhere
But most are just too tired to care
They’re going nowhere
