Brakeman Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I was a brakeman
The sharpest of all them
Hoping to be there in it good
Verse 2
I was a bum rush
And pardon the self lust
It wasn't always understood
Verse 3
I was comb man
I comb every short line
I wanted to damage just a few
Verse 4
Hoping in time it won't be swift enough
And they'll carry us away
And they'll carry us away
Verse 5
I was a cold one
Colder than ever
You feel the chill I left on you
Verse 6
Now back on the brake lines
Steeper than I climbed
Well if there's one will it be you?
Verse 7
Take your ride, and take your fall
And laying your trap for me
Verse 8
Take this wig above my head
It did what it had to do
Verse 9
It runs back to straight and true
And leaving no more..
