It's rolling

So goodbye lovely train tracks
And goodbye broken trees
The devil poured his concrete
'Cross all our empty fields
From shadows across our sunrise
And sand beneath our wheels
So goodbye lovely warehouse
And goodbye sleeping weeds
Your beauty was a shining thing
That fell away from me

Everybody gets a little lost sometimes...

    General CommentKingJelle is correct, I think. And I believe it is less environmentalist/anarchist; this is simply farewell to an almost childhood-like friend. It makes me, personally, think about this old community center near where I used to live. Me and my friends used to hang out there, but I went back a few years ago and found that they had torn it down. Same feelings of loss, but inevitable loss, kind of mixing.

    General CommentI think this song is referring to the possible mindset of people looking back on their old industrial lifestyles after an anarchist revolution.
