Dot of America

from Mercator by Science Park



41°52’43.10”N -87°38’24.90”W

The second single from Science Park's forthcoming album, MERCATOR (Obscure-Disk OBSCD11). Coming September 28, 2018.


Mid-America by steam line / Union underneath the skylight
Baltic engine heaves a hot sigh / Minneapolis before night

And with the signal, our wheels they roll away
Open the throttle, the city recedes in the gray
And the conductor will cry out her name, hooray:
“O Hiawatha, the queen of Milwaukee way!”

Picking up at Caledonia / Laying back into Ixonia
Every tower, every new town / Silhouetted by the sundown

Oh in the Tip Top, they’re pouring out the laughs
I’m high enough with my face against the glass
I close my eyes when I hear the whistle blast:
Woo-ooo, woo-ooo.

Okauchee, all aboard. West Salem, all aboard.
Winona, all aboard. Lake City, all aboard.

From the junction, it’s a short ride / City crossing in the moonlight
Hear the clacking of the coach door / Seven hours from the lake shore

Out in the station, the winds are three below
And the conductor is counting down to go
But in my heart there’s a signal box that glows:
“O Hiawatha!”
