The train we are on can't be stopped,
even though we know what is coming,
just not the how or the when.

No brakes to slow down the journey
we pass each other from car to car,
the engine a thing no one ever sees.

Then the lights go out for a second
and some once there just a second ago,
now gone,
there seems to be no rhyme or reason,
at least as far as we can see.

What is feared is when our time comes,
when the lights go out
and when light returns,
we are gone.

Were to we go?
Does anyone care?
Will we when the lights go out?

It is the bad aspect of self awareness and having imagination. We know who we are, we know we are alive, we know we will die. and we do not want to contemplate our end. Death is what happens to others, not us. As you write, the lights flicker and there a life has gone, but it is not ours, so we think of other things to take our mind away from reality.
