This compelling ditty is "Night Falls Like a Freight Train." It hails from the album of the same title by the musical Artists thelasttosleep. Aka Balie and Daniel.
As Balie and Daniel say, it's a "Slow metamorphosis from eerie into something far worse and back out again. For those who like scavenger hunts, listen for and locate the rattlesnakes. (Balie has hidden them so well that Daniel still can't find them.)"
When I hear this piece I often see a freight steam train ploughing through a mid European nightscape. Moonlight grants billowing trees & spanning architecture shadowed suggestions of daytime colours. No more than a hint because Shades crouch beneath them.....collecting colours, blunting edges. Eyes glower and fingers reach.
Night falls hard. Heavy. Like a Freight Train. Crushing. Nullifying all light in its path, yet darkly seducing without a five finger touch. It waits for the unwary. Haunts the hapless traveller.
Listen to this and ride the dystopian, dissociative tracks. Sooner or later you'll find the wholly human tied to the lines.
I get on this train whenever I hear its rhythmic undulations call me to the Station.
