I act surprised when you told me
But I guess I always knew
You tried to hide the smoking
Well I guess I knew that too
And I apologize for the things I could not do
I been scandalized
I heard that so have you

But we should get down
Like old times
And see the Rock Island Line
She’s a mighty fine line
We could take a ride
The whistle sounds
I heard that kingdom come is coming down
But we ain’t bound for glory
But heaven knows it feels the same

What’s with the bandage?
I check your palms
Word on the street is you ain’t even bleeding
And I can’t imagine
That any sane boy couldn’t mean what I’m meaning
Don’t forget about Austin
When you’re lying in bed and it’s too hard for dreaming
But it’s all fleeting
Anything that I said after I said I was leaving

But we should get down
Call hard times
And see the Rock Island Line
She’s a mighty fine line
Between father and son
Ones’ ordained
We ain’t sharing but I’m sharing his name
And we ain’t bound for glory
But heaven knows it feels the same

Jesus lives in the rafters
Of the broke down church on the avenue
He said he’s waiting on the rapture
Cause there’s nothing much else to do
And you might say that I’ve been playing the waiting game
But it sure enough feels the same
And you might say that I’ve been playing the waiting game
But it sure enough feels the same
Yes it sure enough, sure enough feels the same
