The Tube
(Karsten Ries)

I’ve stumbled into the underground
Blinded by the light
I turn around
Where to go?
Inside of me there’s raging a fight

I hear the tube train is coming near
Through the darkness of the maze
What can I do?
What will be?
Will I stand the speed of the race?

Tube, tube, take me away
Take me to another, better place
Oh tube, tube, stop it’s me
Where are you taking me?

Doors slam, I am caught inside
Eyes staring at my face
I wanna escape but I can’t get out
I don’t wanna fit in this place

Pinstripe suit with briefcase brown
I don’t wanna end up like that
I put on a mask, a smiling face
To hide away my tears

Tube, tube, take me away
Take me to another, better place
Tube, tube, stop it’s me
Where are you taking me?

See the graffiti on the wall
A small piece of innocence
I don’t wanna go
The curtain lifts to start the show

Tube, tube, you take me away
Take me to another, better place
Tube, tube, stop it’s me
Where are you taking me?
