Tube Freaks – Written Thursday 2nd November 1995 (Aged 20)

Tube Freaks

tube freaks –
the london underground
plays it play
tube freaks
the distorted tortured people
who seem to ride –
across the zones
it is the only way to survive
tube freaks
leaning on the yellow rail
everyone is here
so how can society fail?
i feel myself melting to the floor
as tube freaks battle for a seat
and to get out of the door
these seem like people –
you never want to meet
you can see them on the tube –
tube freaks
