“Music speaks to people. Every facet of our lives usually has music attached to it somewhere. It’s amazing to contribute to that; a little bit of happiness in someone’s life.” -Zelena Hull

Black Train

This song is inspired by the old west and the common struggles that characterized the frontier. Who we follow in the song is a troubled man marked by pain and suffering. In this formative years his father died, leaving behind a large sum of debt due to his gambling addiction. Sadly are protagonist was left with the responsibility to pay back all the debt collectors. He tries whatever he can, however he eventually settles on being a bounty hunter. Overtime is morality is chipped away over the impending debt leading to him operating outside the law to survive. He soon takes personal bounties and hit jobs as he’s still being haunted by the death of his father, decisions, and lot in life. 

Lyrics:

Black train coming, coming around the bend, ready for your soul because you’ve already sinned

Black train coming, coming around the bend, ready for your soul because you’ve already sinned

All your daddy left was a debt to be paid, when he laid himself to rest in any early grave

All the money you’d try to save, no matter how much it was never enough

Shackled to a life of misery, no one could save you, you were history

Left with nothing else, but a demon on your back

Black train coming, coming around the bend, ready for your soul because you’ve already sinned

Black train coming, coming around the bend, ready for your soul because you’ve already sinned

You had nothing else, so desperate to get out, you signed deal, to pay a little bit back

A Bounty was laid, you were paid, you weren’t no law man, but you put it in your hands

You didn’t care who it was, just as long as it paid enough

Didn’t care about the cost, hunting the innocent and lost

Black train coming, coming around the bend, ready for your soul because you’ve already sinned

Black train coming, coming around the bend, ready for your soul because you’ve already sinned
