The red lights are flashing as the boxcars roll by,
But I keep the engine running, have her ready to gun and fly.
Message on the police band says they can't get next to you,
Well, they aren't the only ones, but there's nothing I can do.
I'm waiting on a freight train to make a play.
Freight train--until another comes by going the opposite way.
Freight train, let me be,
Oh freight train, unless you're planning on spending the night with me
Now there's dueling bells and whistles and a glitter disco ball,
BNSF, OOCL, and a literal cattle call.
Now The Police are saying that the truth hits everyone,
I think it's too soon to say that yet, ask me when the night is done.
