Waktu rilis: 23-12-1997

Shadows come creepin' down the alleys,

Lonesome lines the boulevard

 

Neon flickers to the rhythm of the night,

 

But this evenin', sleep is coming hard

 

Down the concrete hallways in this part of town

 

You can hear the young hearts drowning in thirst for life

 

The back streets full of mystery, people

 

Frozen in their dreams

 

Too little mercy, too little love,

 

Too much night, it's too much tonight

 

Chorus:

The eastern avenue runs level with the river

 

In between lies the freight yard of boxcar blues

 

Eastern avenue railway, come on, come on and deliver

 

This load of tears and this pair of walking shoes

 

Boy's got the eastern avenue river railway blues

 

Trapped between him and the city,

 

He packed a bag and took one south bound over the line

 

Trapped between him and the pity, he suffers for those unfaithful times

 

Well, eastbound river railway runs swift and hard

 

He swears tonight he's gonna take that ride

Jerk a cold steel freight train right down the boulevard

He ain't gonna stop 'til all the loneliness collides

 

'Cause it's too much tonight
