January 1979 saw a terrible crash...|
February 1878 (i think):
|As Elephant addressed the frightened animal car, |
“We’ll return now to the dust, for the dust we are!
Tonight, our bridal fate - the hour’s come to consummate!”
And drove her massive body on the truck into the iron bars.
Large stone thrown from out the hopper’s back,
our car tossed against the diamond stack
that cradled the caboose -
the frozen bolt broke loose!
Sent that cage spinnin' like a dreidel off the icy tracks.
i'm sure some people have figured out the connection here, but this is why Aaron Weiss is one of the two or three best lyricists currently operating.
