Listen closely. The lyrics of Locomotive Breath use the imagery of an impending and unavoidable train wreck as an allegorical portrayal of a man's life falling apart. I think these lyrics also best describe the lives of most militant smokers who refuse to quit smoking, or even attempt to slow down.
Quit smoking now or your life too will soon become a runaway train wreck.
