New Song: "Night Train to Sarajevo"

wrote this when I couldn't sleep on the night train to Sarajevo, Bosnia. Out my window I could see plenty of bombed out buildings leftover from the war 15 years ago. There simply is not the money to repair much of the damage, so bullet holes and destroyed buildings are fairly common here yet. Here are the lyrics to "Night Train to Sarajevo". I may change some stuff yet, but I really like how it sounds so far.

I can't recall
I can't recall the place anymore
I'm tempted more
I'm tempted more than you'd believe me.

We are drawn to the current
like a moth to a flame.
Drawn to the evidence,
that cannot be contained.

Take to the railways, or you can
take to a plane.
Drink to your innocence, or
drink to your blame.

I have to rest
I have to rest but I'm so wired.
When I wake up
When I wake up will it relieve me?

We are drawn to the current
like a moth to a flame.
Drawn to the evidence,
that cannot be contained.

Take to the railways, or you can
take to a plane.
Drink to your innocence, or
drink to your shame.

To your shame
To your shame
Yes, you and I are just the same
We can all share a little blame

We are drawn to the current
like a moth to a flame.
Drawn to the evidence,
that cannot be contained.

You can take you a message, and
I'll do the same
Get you some living in
With what time remains.
