Night Train

from Night Train by In Absentia



Get on the train for a wild ride through the night with this new single from In Absentia. The song is an allegory of life, as seen through the window of the train passing through the dark unknown. The single will be accompanied by a really cool remix by ManMindMachine ( ) on Bandcamp only.
In Absentia could celebrate their 30 years anniversary in 2020 and is currently working on a new album called ‘Reanimated’ to be released in the last quarter of 2021.


Night Train lyrics:

A beam of light
Cuts through the darkness
Moves through the night
Into emptiness

Chorus 1:
You’re on the
Night train (night train)
You are all alone
On the
Night train (night train)
Destination unknown

Wheels are turning
Screeching and grinding
Like your heart’s yearning
Along rails winding

Chorus 2:
You’re on the
Night train (night train)
Moving through time
On the
Night train (night train)
Leave the world behind

Passing wastelands
And dark structures
Blurred in the distance
As ghostly figures

Chorus 1

Another crossing
Stations left behind
Like a short feeling
You leave in your mind

Chorus 2

Moving through the mist
Through a reality
That only exist
In your memory

Chorus 1 + 2

Through the tunnels
Over the bridges
You bid them farewell
You blow them your kisses

Pale lights in the dark
Flicker and die
Your ways were set to part
You wave them goodbye
