Lanegan, Mark - Deep Black Vanishing Train Lyrics




Yellow moon keep hanging there
And don't you ever come down
Tattered newspaper pages
Are scattered across the ground

Lost on a violent sea
Gone for endless days
I have tried to free myself
But it's been hard to break away

So long light, you're bound to fall
Now isn't that a shame
Casting shadows on the wall
Too late to learn another game

Transfixed by what isn't seen
And what will never change
The times I've tried to free myself
It's been hard to look away

It's a deep black vanishing train
Upon a very long track
Standing on a sidewalk in the rain
Hands behind my back

Lost on a violent sea
Day on endless day
I have finally freed myself
But it's been hard to break away

    Yellow moon keep hanging there
    And don't you ever come down
    Tattered newspaper pages
    Are scattered across the ground

    Lost on a violent sea
    Gone for endless days
    I have tried to free myself
    But it's been hard to break away

    So long light, you're bound to fall
    Now isn't that a shame
    Casting shadows on the wall
    Too late to learn another game

    Transfixed by what isn't seen
    And what will never change
    The times I've tried to free myself
    It's been hard to look away

    It's a deep black vanishing train
    Upon a very long track
    Standing on a sidewalk in the rain
    Hands behind my back

    Lost on a violent sea
    Day on endless day
    I have finally freed myself
    But it's been hard to break away

  11. astrololee

    I love this haunting & poignant song on self reflection and not being able to let go of old habits which are a way of life, knowing that even when you do, its all only just under the surface and it would be so easy just to fall back into the routine again. This is the image the song conjures up for me.
