STARING EYES OF THE MAN ON MURDER TRAIN
Written by Justin Burrill (Crabble Duro, BMI)
© 1987 all rights reserved

A trance is broken and a man falls to his knees
It's a hallelujah revival down at the mission
A murmur rises behind what we see
A stick is stuck halfway down and out
The agony must be elevating
Hung on the wall... it's illuminating
but back or down
it will never move
It's a knife and it's stuck-The staring eyes of the man on the murder train

These things happen almost every day
What is the motivation?
A man is standing is standing in a suit on a train...they call his number right there
What I saw I can't say for sure
but I know I'll never forget

the staring eyes of the man or the murder train

It's a plot that goes high and far and wide
that's what I read in the paper
Now daggers hang above me as I sleep
he stood so close to me
and if it can touch him then it can touch me, too
