lyrics

"All aboard to Tarrytown!"
(Croton-Harmon farther down)
Then those charming, chiming sounds.
The usual delays...
These lines have seen better days!

"Have your tickets ready, please!"
I could barely stretch my knees -
The squall retired to breeze -
A slowly diving scaup -
And then a sudden stop.

And so are hearts assailed,
A train has been derailed,
With four more lives curtailed.
Just hear me out…

I recall that farewell strain,
So resplendent in the rain;
So valiant in vain.
And though the creek's been paved,
I hear it out in the waves

From my half-moon in the trees
(Mise en scene as Deco frieze),
I see it all with ease:
The horrors of this town
(The trumpet-man who drowned).

And to this day remains
That ol' familiar pain.
Sometimes I can't explain -
Just hear me…

[Spuyten Duyvil,
I know I will
Live it again] (x2)

It was February 5th
When, adjoined by kin and kith,
He rose to meet the myth
I hardly even knew...
But what's a boy to do?

Are we truly all alone?
Will they reap what we have sown?
Or catch what we have thrown?
Though devils lie in spite,
Just hear me…

[CHORUS]

And with our manitou intact,
We singled up and doubled back,
For maps can never know the land,
And I will never understand.
Shantih
Shantih
Shanti

[CHORUS]
