If you want to come on down
Down with your bones so white
And watch while the freight trains pound
Into the wild, wild night

How I would love to gnaw
To gnaw on your bones so white
And watch while the freight trains paw
Into the wild, wild night

How I D-Twain (Repeat)

If you want to come on down
Down with your bones so white
And watch while the freight trains pound
Into the wild, wild night

    = absolutely gorgeous.

    I think this song might be about sex, actually. Words like "pound", the concept of a "wild" night and an overtly sexual, almost animalistic middle verse - "How I would love to gnaw To gnaw on your bones so white". I think the fact that the bones are "so white" are meant to symbolise innocence. It's just a boy who likes an innocent girl and wants to have sex with her, I suppose.

    Lyric CorrectionThe lyrics are, 'how i D-Twain' opposed to, 'detrain'. Referring to an inside joke of theirs where Suren imitates some kind of fictional rap star. if you search D-Twain on Facebook a group comes up featuring Suren.

    My InterpretationMayaMoo - such a horny person!
    There is nothing like that...
    So, my interpretation of this one:

    This is pretty about death.
    If you want to be bad - so go down with your bones so white.
    If you want - than go! It is your problem.

    I think that Jack is leaving one person (Leaving Blues) and all of the songs are about it. A bit.
