Well hey here we go again
On this long railroad
Firmly gripping my hand on the third rail
The whole way down this lonely road
Staring into your eyes
Through the fuzz at the bottom of bottles
Its the pain that binds us
Its the time that won't let us leave

To you, my sweet and slow goodnight
I give you all
I give you the freedom to leave
But you say you can't let go
This choice is all but new
"And they shall be like glue"

A breath taken too deeply
Stutters out with words of remorse
For what I've had to tell you now
I don't want you to go away
But we both know you can't stay
No longer will I question your devotion
Its been proved thirty-fold and then some
Staring into your eyes
Through my unwitting clarity
Finally I see who you are

To you, my sweet and swift goodnight
I can't give you all
But I gave you the order to leave
You say you can't let go
These words are all but new
"And they shall be like glue"

I've made my bed upon the third rail
I guess its my time to lay down
The fight has been short and fast
But taxing beyond all belief; I'm fubar
Yes dear I clearly see it all now
I know how much you still love me
Even though I have to abandon you

So march first column march
March second column march
March fifth column march

To you, my sweet and soft good-morning
I give you my heart in this kiss
Keep me well inside
