On a Warm Summer’s Eve, on a Train Bound for Nowhere…

Arkem: If it’s a train bound for nowhere why don’t they get off?
Me: They wanted somewhere to have a nap.
Arkem: And a chat. And some whiskey.
Me: Sounds pretty good to me.
Arkem: ….so they were at the bar? …. If I open a bar I’m going to call it ‘Train Bound For Nowhere’.

This is a song about drinking and taking risks, about making friends with strangers, and about death.* And if you’re in the right frame of mind it sounds like a lullaby.

We were both too tired to sleep
So we took turns staring
Out the window at the darkness
/
He said, “If you’re gonna play the game, boy
You gotta learn to play it right

* Which is also a pretty good description of Drink Me. So you can understand what it’s doing in this playlist.
