about

a modern traveler mirrors a colonialist from a past era on his journey through India

lyrics

squeeze the lemon, drip drop to the bottom of my cup
a sip of tea in the shade of a mango tree
an awakened colonialist, plastic bottles of water and beer
he takes a piss on the wall of the train station hall
has life crashed all around here?
he may be young but he’s old for his years
swollen mango in hand, stale cigarette on the breath of his lungs
he snaps a photo of a beggar by the bathroom stalls
there’s mango juice running down
to his chin on its way to the ground
he feels so rich when he should be feeling poor
has life crashed all around here?
he may be young but he’s old for his years
the train’s leaving by nine, he’ll hop on to go for a ride
to the mountains where he’ll be comforted by the cold
train tracks leading west lain down sometime long in the past
trash thrown out the window glitters in the sun
