    "Down In The Tube Station At Midnight" Lyrics

    Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine

    The distant echo -
    Of faraway voices boarding faraway trains
    To take them home to
    The ones that they love and who love them forever
    The glazed, dirty steps - repeat my own and reflect my thoughts
    Cold and uninviting, partially naked
    Except for toffee wrapers and this mornings paper
    Mr. jones got run down
    Headlines of death and sorrow - they tell of tomorrow
    Madmen on the rampage
    And Im down in the tube station at midnight

    I fumble for change - and pull out the queen
    Smiling, beguiling
    I put in the money and pull out a plum
    Behind me
    Whispers in the shadows - gruff blazing voices
    Hating, waiting
    Hey boy they shout - have you got any money?
    And I said - Ive a little money and a take away curry,
    Im on my way home to my wife.
    Shell be lining up the cutlery,
    You know shes expecting me
    Polishing the glasses and pulling out the cork
    And Im down in the tube station at midnight

    I first felt a fist, and then a kick
    I could now smell their breath
    They smelt of pubs and wormwood scrubs
    And too many right wing meetings

    My life swam around me
    It took a look and drowned me in its own existence
    The smell of brown leather
    It blended in with the weather
    It filled my eyes, ears, nose and mouth
    It blocked all my senses
    Couldnt see, hear, speak any longer
    And Im down in the tube station at midnight
    I said I was down in the tube station at midnight

    The last thing that I saw
    As I lay there on the floor
    Was jesus saves painted by an atheist nutter
    And a british rail poster read have an awayday - a cheap holiday -
    Do it today!
    I glanced back on my life
    And thought about my wife
    cause they took the keys - and she'll think its me
    And Im down in the tube station at midnight
    The wine will be flat and the currys gone cold
    Im down in the tube station at midnight
    Dont want to go down in a tube station at midnight
