Lyrics:
Blackout 27

Late night local shot black and white
I keep seeing my stop go by
Each time I stand up and speak so the conductor can hear me "What stop was that?" and he is suddenly near me
Too near, too suddenly

I can hear the conductor sweat
"Late tonight", his voice is too wet

And repeats reveal
Cardboard soundtrack
And repeats reveal
And cardboard passengers
And repeats reveal
A strange sequence of events
And repeats reveal
Repeats repeat themselves

Late night local shot black and white
I keep seeing my stop go by
In a moment of clarity, I think about Hollywood
Where am I going and why am I going there?
Why am I going there?

Thinking a film is being made
The more things change the more they stay the same

And repeats reveal
Cardboard soundtrack
And repeats reveal
And cardboard passengers
And repeats reveal
A strange sequence of events
And repeats reveal
Repeats repeat themselves
And repeats reveal
Only subtle changes
And repeats reveal
An attempt at something
And repeats reveal
This isn't a train at all
And repeats reveal
Repeats repeat themselves
Events describe themselves, what are they saying?
What are they saying?
And repeats reveal
