Under lines of trees
Inside caves that open up to cityscapes
I was a traitor and they found me out
I was a drunk and blinded sailor
To sew your insides close
These are landmine carburetors
I find it hard to believe that the medicine is helping me
At the end of the day the computer screens give blue and silent offerings
At the end of the day view that all the trains are churches
And roads like muddy water
They gave you poetry and endless hours of conversation
And it affects the colours over
I'm a drawn out corporate warrior
And the night that smells like water
Your crutch and your cross
Your voltage your watts
And at the end of the day

    General CommentHe mentions medication, I think hes saying that they are bad, they are landmine carburetors used to try to fix him.... In this state of depression (I'm of the idea the medication is an anti-depressant), I think hes questioning God's existence.... the roads are muddy water, to rained out to traverse so we take trains, which are churches.... church gives you "poetry and endless hours of conversation" that affect the way you see the world..... he talks about being a businessman on the nights that it rains, he spends to much time traveling on trains maybe....

    thats all i got

    General CommentI think Inhocsignovice is on the right track. He seems to be questioning God's existence, and he's certainly not content with his current place in life. The train seems to be a focal part of his life...underneath lines of trees, caves opening up to cityscapes...probably spends a lot of time looking out the window, and the tunnels are like caves, he feels trapped. He's unhappy being a corporate pawn, almost mindless, and he's either taking or selling medication, or both. Results in "sewing your insides closed." (For anyone who has ever taken or known anyone who has taken anti-depressants, they can sometimes make you feel even more depressed and helpless)
