all the same to me lyrics – golden smog

met a man on a train near santa fe
who was dead a minute as a child
fell off a dock
he couldn’t swim and his heart stopped
a gold snake slid from the sky
and swallowed him up
he disappeared inside
he disappeared inside

the train stopped in a field of oil wells
a blind girl needed help getting on
the man was drunk from a flask half full of rum
i shook my head
when he offered me some
que sera, he said and took another swig
the train roared up a hill of sickly pines
a small boy chased a ball up the aisle
as the black mouth of a tunnel swallowed us up
we disappeared inside
we disappeared inside

here we go
