Lyrics:
Outside there's a boxcar waiting
Outside the family stew
Out by the fire breathing
Outside we wait 'til face turns blue

I know the nervous walking
I know the dirty beard hangs
Out by the boxcar waiting
Take me away to nowhere plains

There is a wait so long
You'll never wait so long
Here comes your man
Here comes your man
Here comes your man

Big shake on the boxcar moving
Big shake to the land that's falling down
Is a wind makes a palm stop blowing
A big big stone fall and break my crown

There is a wait so long
You'll never wait so long
Here comes your man
Here comes your man
Here comes your man
Here comes your man

There is a wait so long
You'll never wait so long
Here comes your man
Here comes your man
Here comes your man
Here comes your man


Quotes:
"This is a pre-Pixies song that I wrote when I was about 15. Itís about wino's and hobos travelling on the trains who dies in the California Earthquake. Before earthquakes everything gets very calm, animals stop talking and birds stop chirping and there's no wind. Itís very ominous.

I've been through a few earthquakes actually 'cos I grew up in California. I was only in one big one in 1971. I was very young and I slept through it. I've been awake through lots of small ones at school and at home. It's very exciting actually, a very comical thing. It's like the earth is shaking, and what can you do? Nothing
"
- NME 22nd April 1989

"Last winter I was doing promotion in Stockholm and I heard this on the radio. It sounded like the most sugary, sweet thing ever. One of our chirpier numbers. Other people like it, what can you say?"
- Select October 1997
