The blurred buzzing of the bell
The slow train’s constant hum
The trumpet trailing off Salem Ave
Fountains in mountains of iron

The people seem new
But the city’s the same
Unchanged
Unchallenged by the quiet waves of wind

And everything’s slower
Closer than before
With weathered brick walls
And rusted tracks that look gold

And the cardinal in bloom
Is afire with forever
Singing of home
Under the Mill Mountain Star

The cardinal in bloom
Conquers the violet twilight
Singing of home
By the Mill Mountain Star
