I can hear my train comin'
It's a lonesome and distant cry
I can hear my train comin'
Now I'm runnin' for my life
What makes a man
Walk away from his mind?
I think I know
I think I might know

What makes a man?
I think I might know
What makes a man?
I think I might know
What makes a man?

I can feel the wind blowin'
It's sending shivers down my spine
I can feel the wind blowin'
Shakes the trees and the power lines
What makes a man
Spend his whole life in disguise?
I think I know
Think I might know

[chorus]

I can hear my train comin'
Looks like time is on my side
I can hear my train comin'
I'm still runnin' for my life
What makes a man pray
When he's about to die?
I think I know
I think I might know

[chorus]

Thank you! Once I stumbled upon the song I couldn't not make this vid.

My very first reaction to this vid is (and I quote) "aaaaaaaaaaaaah jim and batman are in LOVE" (or, you know, their character arcs parallel in neat and interesting ways) but my more reasoned second reaction is: this is an awesome song choice (his whole life in disguise! really, song?), and this vid is exactly the Batman: Year One vid I wanted to see. Thank you!

Thank you, I'm so glad you liked it! :D LOL, I agree, the lyrics were eerily spot-on. Couldn't not make this vid once I found the song.

And hee, I didn't set out to make a slash vid but once I was done I was like, "Huh, I think you could read it that way."

Animated shows usually don't do much for me, but I found your vid extremely beautiful and touching. It's very haunting and I love the song you picked (in fact I'll go and look up the band now!). Great job ♥

The artist is new to me but he has a lot of really lovely songs. Thank you for the kind comment! My roots are in animated vidding so it's nice when I can bring people around. ;)

I love this! I usually have a big emotional disconnect with 2D source, I don't know why, but didn't feel that at all with this vid. The song choice was gorgeous, and the PoV choice was inspired. Loved the musicality too (like 00:13 onto the 00:16 transition, 1:25 love how long the clip runs with the great payoff of Batman in the distance right on cue, the quick sucession of clips at 1:51, and so many more throughout)

Aw, thanks so much for the detailed feedback Milly! And like I said to legoline, I'm always glad to bring people around on 2D source. :D

Okay, I don't know much of what was going on here, having never seen this series, but I really enjoyed the experience. The music helped convey what Bruce was going through.
