This is a political song. I’m still working on it. The train coming through your town refers to the great iron wheel, the military-industrial complex, the cartels, the monopolistic, monolithic machine. The corporate image, The lobbyists. The way things work nowadays, the telemarketing, the networked approach, the billing. The fear on the airwaves, the monotony of it. It’s rolled across our towns all over the world this train has.
