about

8th track from the 1st 'MOK album

lyrics

Cold concrete crumbles
As steely skies thunder
Industrial wasteland
Inspires revivification

City lights burning bright as we descend into darkness
To escape from the madness of endless consumption
We linger in alleys and forsaken factories
The dross of progress

Step cautiously over wrecked rusted refuse
Descend silently into the pestilent abyss
Known only as home to the weary unwanted
Society’s blemish

Slow rumble low grumble
Wheels squeal on old steal
Enraged diesel edge onward
Into emergent dark

Shielded in shadows
Beneath derelict bridges
Crouched in the black night
Awaiting iron horses

Grasp hold of the top rung... sprint as fast as you can run
Quick step and a lunge... and the horse has been mounted
Then climb to the top of that rusted old hopper
Feet nimbly skipping...

Traverse the running boards to find the ideal spot
To relax and enjoy the release of all sorrow
To discharge the weary burdens of the day...

Then roll through the city past slums - and the vagrants look on by fires
Tall stacks billowing black smoke - the destructive
result of desire

Fierce city lights fade as the horse races onward
Rolling towards fields long forgotten in the country
With the rush, then the push all fear and hatred
Finally subsides

At long last at peace we sway with the freighter
As warm winds embrace us heading south through the
darkness

Stars strewn across black skies... life left behind us
I can see for miles
