Track Name: The Last Train
the city of Memphis was sacred ground
where high priests dwelled in a temple of sound
three chords and the truth was a grace that saved
and the prophets spoke on a radio wave

but the congregation all got conned
and the holiest books were trampled on
and a golden idol got a golden crown
cause the sanctified could not be found

*** darkness fell like a long black veil
that swept salvation down a steel rail
so hallelujah and bless my soul
there's no such thing as rock & roll
there was a time it rang loud and clear but it
caught the last train out of here
caught the last train out of here

all the charlatans preach strait through the night
but the truth is nothing is going to be alright
there's a wishing well in a Cleveland hall
and the mission bell was a wrecking ball

***
now the posers pose and what a joke
because anything real . . . well, you know
dizzy young dancers are ruling the charts
while the poets die with ragged hearts

***
the city of Memphis was sacred ground
