lyrics

I walk on, and then there is a railroad track.

A woman, nearby, says to me: "Whatever you do, do not cross it. Do not cross it here."

"I never thought I would find a railroad track in this place", I tell her, confused.

"I am the Warrior", she says, "walk with me, and remember that when the time comes, the beasts will join us in The Great Escape. Listen: railroad tracks have no direction.

They are a set of roads, and the direction is a matter of choice. Most sets of railroad tracks are all interconnected, and together they make one massive infinite journey through all the landscapes of the world.

It is therefore very important to make a wise choice as to which direction one is to take when choosing to board a train, and even more so when choosing to follow a railroad track."

Her voice is reassuring, and I know it is wise to follow her. She is walking along the railroad track. She is not exactly following it. She walks along as if it were a mere path she was choosing to take, strolling in a garden.

At some point, it will be safe to cross.
