Train track: ‘I fought in a war, and I left my friends behind me to go looking for the enemy’ – belle&sebastian

are you in Some-ville still,
or did you take that Memphis train,
the one that drained you,
a choo-choo track
that claimed the veins you used,
though the stains you saw were the same as
the colors that Christ bled,
that human condition was just
a withdrawal from his bread,
and this thing that you fear the most,
instead of another false comfort dose,
is the end of the track and a railway station,
the beginning of love as a new foundation,
where you’ll find us with open arms to meet you.
