If you want to come on down
Down with your bones so white
Watch while the freight trains pound
Into the wild, wild night

How I would love to gnaw
To gnaw on your bones so white
And watch as the freight trains paw
Paw at the wild, wild night

All these ghost towns
Wreathed in old loam
Assateague knee-deep in seafoam
Ho Swansea
Buttonwillow
Lagunitas
Ho Calico

And all these beastly bungalows
Stare, distend, like endless toads
Endlessly hop down the road
Borne by wind, we southward blow

And yonder, wild and blue
The wild blue yonder looms
'Till we are wracked with rheum
By roads, by songs entombed

And all we want to do
Is chew, and chew, and chew
Dear one, drive on
When all we want to do
Is chew, and chew, and chew

And if you want to come on down
Down with your bones so white
Watch while the freight trains pound
Into the wild, wild night

How I would love to gnaw
To gnaw on your bones so white
And watch as the freight trains paw
Paw at the wild, wild night
Paw at the wild, wild night
Paw at the wild, wild night
