Night-bound train thunders on the track,
Smoke stack station lets it go,
Wails in mourning, never turn back,
Coal and smoke in shrouds of snow.
Castles crane on crags of rock,
Cinder-block bastions crumble down,
Crushed to dust, all ‘round the clock
A Lonesome wolf patrols this town.
Feelings burst and bring black rain,
Ice-blind torrents sweep the eyes,
Wrought regret rolls through the brain,
A lonesome wolf howls to the skies.
My name in blood scrawls red and bold,
Letters of love in scarlet and stone,
For winter with you in rain and cold,
Far better than paradise suffered alone.
