    Another folk song. Read it, tell me what you think, be honest, you know what to do. Say whatever you want, I'm impossible to offend.

    Railway Freedom Fighters
    No I don't know why we drink the night
    Into all these different freeway highs
    But through glare from dimming lights on glass
    You read the traffic signs
    While they meant nothing, they were everything to you
    Just cities we were passing through
    In the dark of the morning, the back of the cab
    Passed out in the coach seats over the tracks

    Chorus thing:
    I wanted nothing more than that
    The lights of cities rushing past
    A sign that I've got no control
    Just wondering where the fuck we'll go

    In a mess of paint sprayed over cracks
    We watched New Jersey turn its back
    Where every dive bar alley wall
    Is a railway freedom fighter's psalm
    No I don't know why they paint the town
    Before they burn it to the ground
    Why we decorate our failure
    As we take a final bow

    Chorus thing:
    I want to save the spotlight
    For all the girls with painted lips
    For the barroom fighting patriots
    And the writers leaving words as tips

    We were many things
    Profane in attempts at blowing smoke rings
    Dropping the ash, you laughed as you missed
    You burned a mark into my skin
    Those days we took our coffee black
    Counting the state lines, burning gas
    We'd soak it up, misguided love
    Some things look better once they've passed

    Chorus thing:
    I want to write the next lament
    That hits you somewhere in your chest
    A tribute to our level heads
    Just wondering where the fuck they went
