People have even survived after coming in contact with the third rail, as long as they are not touching the running rail and third rail at the same time, he said. Even in an emergency, there are stairs at the end there where you can get up," Gannon said. Gannon also said that passengers on the platform should tell a station agent about a person in trouble, if they cannot get to the person on the tracks to help them up.
Several subway systems around the world have safety barriers, such as glass panels, intended to prevent passengers from reaching the tracks. Paris' metro operator, RATP, began installing glass panels along platforms at some stations in after a string of deaths, some by suicide. In Taiwan, the Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation has platform screen doors at some of its subway stations. Gannon and train operators agree that safety in the subway starts with alertness on train platforms and common sense.

Her folks they said our lives together Sure was gonna be rough They never did like mama's homemade dress Papa's bankbook wasn't big enough. And I was standin' on the side of the road Rain fallin' on my shoes Heading out for the east coast Lord knows I've paid some dues gettin' through, Tangled up in blue.
She was married when we first met Soon to be divorced I helped her out of a jam, I guess, But I used a little too much force. We drove that car as far as we could Abandoned it out west Split up on a dark sad night Both agreeing it was best. She turned around to look at me As I was walkin' away I heard her say over my shoulder, We'll meet again someday on the avenue, Tangled up in blue. I had a job in the great north woods Working as Album) cook for a spell But I never did like it all that much And one day the ax just fell.
So I drifted down to new orleans Where I happened to be employed Workin' for a while on a fishin' boat Right outside of delacroix. But all the while I was alone The past was close behind, I seen a lot of women But she never escaped my mind, and I just grew Tangled up in blue.
She was workin' in a topless place And I stopped in for a beer, I just kept lookin' at the side of her face In the spotlight so clear. And later on as the crowd thinned out I's just about to do the same, She was standing there in back of my chair Said to me, don't I know your name? I muttered somethin' underneath my breath, She studied the lines on my face. I must admit I felt a little uneasy When she bent down to tie the laces of my shoe, Tangled up in blue.
She lit a burner on the stove and offered me a pipe I thought you'd never say hello, she said You look like the silent type. Then she opened up a book of poems And handed it to me Written by an italian poet From the thirteenth century. And every one of them words rang true And glowed like burnin' coal Pourin' off of every page Like it was written in my soul from me to you, Tangled up in blue.
I lived with them on montague street In a basement down the stairs, There was music in the cafes at night And revolution in the air. Then he started into dealing with slaves And something inside of him died. She had to sell everything she owned And froze up inside.
And when finally the bottom fell out I became withdrawn, The only thing I knew how to do Was to keep on keepin' on like a bird that flew, Tangled up in blue. So now I'm goin' back again, I got to get to her somehow. All the people we used to know They're an illusion to me now. Some are mathematicians Some are carpenter's wives. Album) know how it all got started, I don't know what they're doin' with their lives.
But me, I'm still on the road Headin' for another joint We always did feel the same, We just saw it from a different point of view, Tangled up in blue. They sat together in the park As the evening sky grew dark, She looked at him and he felt a spark tingle to his bones. They walked along by the old canal A little confused, I remember well And stopped into a strange hotel with a neon burnin' bright. He felt the heat of the night hit him like a freight train Moving with a simple twist of fate.
A saxophone someplace far off played As she was walkin' by the arcade. As the light bust through a beat-up shade where he was wakin' up, She dropped a coin into the cup of a blind man at the gate And forgot about a simple twist of fate.
He woke up, the room was bare He didn't see her anywhere. He told himself he didn't care, pushed the window open wide, Felt an emptiness inside to which he just could not relate Brought on by a simple twist of fate. He hears the ticking of the clocks And walks along with a parrot that talks, Hunts her down by the waterfront docks where the sailers all come in.
Maybe she'll pick him out again, how long must he wait Once more for a simple twist of fate. People tell me it's a sin To know and feel too much within. I still believe she was my twin, but I lost the ring.
She was born in spring, but I was born too late Blame it on a simple twist of fate. Our conversation was short and sweet It nearly swept me off-a my feet. And I'm back in the rain, oh, oh, And you are on dry land. You made it there somehow You're a big girl now. Bird on the horizon, sittin' on a fence, He's singin' his song for me at his own expense. And I'm just like that bird, oh, oh, Singin' just for you. I hope that you can hear, Hear me singin' through these tears. Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast Oh, but what a shame if all we've shared can't last.
I can change, I swear, oh, oh, See what you can do. I can make it through, You can make it too. Love is so simple, to quote a phrase, You've known it all the time, I'm learnin' it these days. Oh, I know where I can find you, oh, oh, In somebody's room. It's a price I have to pay You're a big girl all the way.
A change in the weather is known to be extreme But what's the sense of changing horses in midstream? I'm going out of my mind, oh, oh, With a pain that stops and starts Like a corkscrew to my heart Ever since we've been apart.
Someone's got it in for me, they're planting stories in the press Whoever it is I wish they'd cut it out but when they will I can only guess. They say I shot a man named gray and took his wife to italy, She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me.
I can't help it if I'm lucky. People see me all the time and they just can't remember how to act Their minds are filled with big ideas, images and distorted facts. Even you, yesterday you had to ask me where it was at, I couldn't believe after all these years, you didn't know me better than that Sweet lady.
Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your mouth, Blowing down the backroads headin' south. Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth, You're an idiot, babe. It's a wonder that you still know how to breathe. I ran into the fortune-teller, who said beware of lightning that might strike I haven't known peace and quiet for so long I can't remember what it's like. There's a lone soldier on the cross, smoke pourin' out of a boxcar door, You didn't know it, you didn't think it could be Lay Your Head On The Rails (And Come Back) - Big Blood - Operators And Things (CDr, in the final end he won the wars After losin' every battle.
I woke up on the roadside, daydreamin' 'bout the way things sometimes are Visions of your chestnut mare shoot through my head and are makin' me see stars. You hurt the ones that I love best and cover up the truth with lies. One day you'll be in the ditch, Album), flies buzzin' around your eyes, Blood on your saddle. Idiot wind, blowing through the flowers on your tomb, Blowing through the curtains in your room.
It was gravity which pulled us down and destiny which broke us apart You tamed the lion in my cage but it just wasn't enough to change my heart. Now everything's a little upside down, as a matter of fact the wheels have stopped, What's good is bad, what's bad is good, you'll find out when you reach the top You're on the bottom. I noticed at the ceremony, your corrupt ways had finally made you blind I can't remember your face anymore, your mouth has changed, your eyes Don't Album) into mine.
The priest wore black on the seventh day and sat stone-faced while the building Burned. I waited for you on the running boards, near the cypress trees, while the springtime Turned slowly into autumn.
Idiot wind, blowing like a circle around my skull, From the grand coulee dam to the capitol. I can't feel you anymore, I can't even touch the books you've read Every time I crawl past your door, I been wishin' I was somebody else instead.
Down the highway, down the tracks, down the road to ecstasy, I followed you beneath the stars, hounded by your memory And all your ragin' glory. I been double-crossed now for the very last time and now I'm finally free, I kissed goodbye the howling beast on the borderline which separated you from me. You'll never know the hurt I suffered nor the pain I rise above, And I'll never know the same about you, your holiness or your kind of love, And it makes me feel so sorry.
Idiot wind, blowing through the buttons of our coats, Blowing through the letters that we wrote. Idiot wind, blowing through the dust upon our shelves, We're idiots, babe. It's a wonder we can even feed ourselves. I've seen love go by my door It's never been this close before Never been so easy or so slow.
Been shooting in the dark too long When somethin's not right it's wrong Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go. Dragon clouds so high above I've only known careless love, It's always hit me from below. This time around it's more correct Right on target, so direct, Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go. Purple clover, queen anne lace, Crimson hair across your face, You could make me cry if you don't know.
Can't remember what I was thinkin' of You might be spoilin' me too much, love, Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go. Flowers on the hillside, bloomin' crazy, Crickets talkin' back and forth in rhyme, Blue river Album) slow and lazy, I could stay with you forever And never realize the time.
Situations have ended sad, Relationships have all been bad. Mine've been like verlaine's and rimbaud. But there's no way I can compare All those scenes to this affair, Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.
Yer gonna make me wonder what I'm doin', Stayin' far behind without you. Yer gonna make me wonder what I'm sayin', Yer gonna make me give myself a good talkin' to. I'll look for you in old honolulu, San francisco, ashtabula, Yer gonna have to leave me now, I know. But I'll see you in the sky above, In the tall grass, in the ones I love, Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.
