The Words

Into the light and out again
Carrying the freight and the words
The train cars go a-rumbling on
The freight is for the lit houses
The words for the night-time runners
Into the light and out again
Painted with care
Scrawled in a hurry
The train cars go a-rumbling on.
As Kilroy was,
So they are now.
Into the light and out again
Artists of spray, masters of risk
Daring the yard boss’s anger
The train cars go a-rumbling on
Words disappearing into the night
Revolution, order, side by side
Into the light and out again
The train cars go a-rumbling on.
