Treasure Island

The Tube


The tube

A carriage full of hearts
And a truck load of souls
A track a direction
It’s all that we need
Fixed speed
No controls
Passive cargo
Manners embargo
Rush hour frenzy feed
Strap hangin chain gang
Don’t look
Bad luck -to read the next page
of another mans book
Stand on the right on the right way to survival
And the next station is
The next station is
None of my business sorry
We’re sorry to announce
All change
All change any change mate all change
Mind the gap
Is in the
Mind
The gap
Is in your
Mind the gap is in the all change
Mind the gap is in your head
