City of Ghostly Heroes
City of Ghostly Heroes

I used to see on Morrison Street
a plastic wreath, a plastic wreath by the railroad tracks
One day a child was crossing and lingering
While a train was comin, down the Morrison street railway tracks
And the mother jumped in and pushed the child away
And then the train came

Its a city of ghostly heroes
And I'm sorry if all you can see in your dark mood
is a city of cowards
I'm sorry if that's all you can see

Within earshot of the might waters plunging over into the river below
You can find the monuments of the men who fought on both sides long ago
Following orders to be sure
And the borders did not shift afterward

But its a city of ghostly heroes
