​1970 Burt Blileven Rookie Card

This song is by Small Towns Burn A Little Slower and appears on the album Morality As Home Entertainment (2006).

The mist is lifted to reveal an abandon road
Leading to a discarded train track town
The sign still reads "Rooms to Let"
Even though this place has been vacant for decades
We've been vacant for decades

This village died with the locomotive
Families now forged by automobiles and airplanes

Do these things make it easier to be close
Or effortless to leave?

These poor walls used to be called home
But the occupants didn't bother to board them up
Before moving on to the next big thing
These tattered sidewalks tell their stories
And then beg for use again

This village died with the locomotive
Families now forged by automobiles and airplanes

Do these things make it easier to be close
Or effortless to leave?
Do these things make it easier to be close
Or effortless to leave?

Children's laughter still permeates through...
Through backyards and tree-forts, and tire-swings
Through backyards and tree-forts, and tire-swings

Do these things make it easier to be close
Or effortless to leave?
Do these things make it easier to be close
Or effortless to leave?

Family meals give way to golden arches
Progress has a price and I am not sure I can flip the bill
