    Lyrics

    Across the dark and dusty plain
    Where scars of old dry rivers run
    Night unfolds, a coal black shroud
    Across the hard and stony ground

    Distant stars shining bright
    In the cavern of the night
    All is still and silence screams
    To the thunder of the Lorca train

    Flaming steal swift as wind
    Wires hum the rails ring
    Smokestack burning fiery sparks
    Rise up to the stars

    Towns asleep by empty roads
    Churches rise from crooked roofs
    Cloaked in darkness nothing stirs
    Grow smaller darker disappear

    See the moon so still and cold
    A million stars that shed no warmth
    Your nightmares all come out to play
    In the silver light

    Wait for sunrise in the east
    Long shadows crawl across the plain
    The ghosts of night will disappear
    And lay your fears to rest

    Steam hissed up, the hot coals glowed
    The furnace blazed, the wheels they rolled
    On tracks of iron, straight and cold
    The silver moonlight danced

    The flames are in the fireman's eye
    Orange in the engines glow
    Gleaming pistons whirling cranks
    Wait for dawn the rooster's crow

    See the moon so still and cold
    A million stars that shed no warmth
    Your nightmares all come out to play
    In the silver light

    Wait for sunrise in the east
    Long shadows crawl across the plain
    The ghosts of night will disappear
    And lay your fears to rest

    See the moon so still and cold
    A million stars that shed no warmth
    Your nightmares all come out to play
    In the silver light

    Wait for sunrise in the east
    Long shadows crawl across the plain
    The ghosts of night will disappear
    And lay your fears to rest
