40 Nights

40 nights, 40 nightmares

can't afford to sleep

40 years worth of reasons

40 miles deep

there's a long black train running southbound

demon souls inside

all aboard, staying here's just suicide


staring out at the darkness

as her candle burns

there's a long suffering woman

waiting for her turn

and the brightest star in the night sky

is falling to the earth

falls upon her, shows her what a wish is worth


when it rains, it pours

of course your new umbrella's broke

your smoke's getting wet


gonna make a change in the morning

if it ever comes

spent a lifetime waiting on the rising sun


40 nights, 40 chances

40 chances blown

40 years worth of wisdom

into the unknown
