Bright Eyes lyrics : "If The Brakeman Turns My Way"

When panic grips your body and your heart is a hummingbird
Raven thoughts blacken your mind until you're breathing in reverse
All your friends and sedatives mean well but make it worse

Every reassurance just magnifies the doubt
Better find yourself a place to level out


Got a cricket for a conscience always looks the other way
A cocaine soul starts seeming like an empty cabaret
Hey, where have all the dancers gone? Now the music doesn't play

Tried to listen to the river but you couldn't shut your mouth
Better take a little time to level out


I never thought of running
My feet just led the way


Mixed up Signals
Bullet Train
Cars are switched out in the crazy rain

I could meet you any place
If the Brakeman turns my way


All this automatic writing I have tried to understand
From a psychedelic angel who was tugging on my hand
It's an infinite coincidence but it doesn't form a plan

So I'm headed for New England or the Paris of the South
Gonna find myself somewhere to level out


Are your brothels full, Oh Babylon, with merry Middlemen?
Never peer out of their periscopes from those deep opium dens
All this death must need a counterweight always someone born again

First a mother bathes her child then the other way around
The Scales always find a way to level out


I tried to pass for nothing
But my dreams gave me away


Mixed up Signals
Bullet Train
People snuffed out in the brutal rain

I could live to any age
If the Brakeman turns my way


It is an old world it's hard to remember
Like a dime store mystery
I'm a repeat first time offender

Who has rewritten history

Mixed up tea leaves

Phantom Pain
Fuzzy logic in the crazy rain
Getting better every day

If the Brakeman turns my way
Mixed up Signals
Bullet Train

Cars are switched out in the blinding rain
He'll be smiling as he seals my fate
When the Brakeman turns my way
