Broken Gospel Train
written by: Jak Locke

version 2:
from Flower of Flesh and Bone (October 7th 2008) (4:48)
We cry masqueraded nothings
Black rainbows silhouette the sky
We sleep the electromanic carnival
Heard our murder like a murmur in the night
Oh-ooo don't you know the world is gonna end right here?

This light like a thousand sunsets
Dust of bones the saints forgot to bless
Rain is falling, dead railmen sing in harmony
Hymns that comfort on a broken gospel train
Oh-ooo don't you know the world is gonna end right here?

Pale September carrion love
Vacant dying floods from above
Drained immobile blades of grass bleed
Angel's bed now the wide open sea

Sister got a brand new hangman
Wet with christening an agonized facade
Now I'm holding hands with dead limbs
Let the oceans fall and drown us with our god

version 1:
from Rain Cabinet (February 23rd 2007) (6:10)
We cry masqueraded nothings
Black rainbows silhouette the sky
We sleep the electromanic carnival
Heard our murder like a murmur in the night
Oh-ooo don't you know the world is gonna end right here?

This light like a thousand sunsets
Dust of bones the saints forgot to bless
Rain is falling, dead railmen sing in harmony
Hymns that comfort on a broken gospel train
Oh-ooo don't you know the world is gonna end right here?

Pale September carrion love
Vacant, dying floods from above
Drained, immobile, blades of grass bleed
Angel's bed now the wide open sea

Sister got a brand new hangman
Wet with christening an agonized facade
Now I'm holding hands with dead limbs
Let the oceans fall and drown us with our god
