"Loco-motive Man" as written by and Steve Edward Duren....
I write to claim a lost identity of me
And I leave a message for you all
Written here the fear that are my destiny you see
Come behold madness you never saw

No love for killer babies
My blood is written on your walls
Oh, it's time I leave you now
Mama look what you made me
Oh no, you never heard me call
Oh, I know you'll hear me now, now

'Cause I'm gone to meet my maker
'Cause I'm locomotive man
One killer baby's come to call
'Cause I'm gonna meet my maker
I am your loco man
I'm coming down to take you all

I feel the rage that brings
The fame of that I need
I've now a face forever more
Living with the fears
That hear those fantasies in me
Come an see sadness you never saw

No love for killer babies
My pain is written on your walls
Oh, it's time I leave you now
Mama look what you made me
Your locomotive killer calls
Oh, I know you hear me now

'Cause I'm gone to meet my maker
'Cause I'm locomotive man
One killer baby's come to call
'Cause I'm gonna meet my maker
I am your loco man
I'm coming down to take you all

Don't wait for me
Don't hate for me
Don't ask of what went wrong
Don't pray for me or wonder why

You've known this all along
I've sinned for you
I envy you
Your pain I'll never know
I wanted love, you gave me none
I've come to take you home

'Cause I'm gone to meet my maker
'Cause I'm locomotive man
One killer baby's come to call
'Cause I'm gonna meet my maker
I am your loco man
I'm coming down to take you all

'Cause I'm gone to meet my maker
'Cause I'm locomotive man
One killer baby's come to call
'Cause I'm gonna meet my maker
I am your loco man
I'm coming down to take you all

Oh god I'm coming
Read my words I'm coming
I got a gun I'm coming
You won't hear me coming

    My InterpretationMy guess is this is tells the thoughts of a disgruntled railroad engineer who's locomotive has been destroyed some how.
    "I leave a message for you all" and "Oh I know you'll hear me now" could refer to the sound of the whistle.
    "I've come to take you home" and "Oh it's time I leave you now" strongly implies that whoever is telling this story is an engineer.
