The Lyrics

What a pitiful state (hey hey), our railways in this time
and travelling is impossible, in the gen'ral publics mind

It was some time in november, it came off the tracks
Byers said it was impossible, with fingers crossed behind his back
and it was inevitable, so obvious and overall
safe to see the train lines cracked this time
sabotage is ruled out, and we find

What a pitiful state (hey hey), our railways in this time
and travelling is impossible, in the gen'ral publics mind

I was studying a picture, of how points work on tracks
when Jarvis claimed that people - were out there with screwdrivers and jacks
then there was a revelation, that railtrack were useless this time
and when Tony got Alistair Darling, he said don't worry, he's a mate of mine

What a pitiful state (hey hey), our railways in this time
and travelling is impossible, in the gen'ral publics mind

the rail broke after midnight, and the signals were all down upon the ground
But Conservatives were hiding, and New Labour had all gone to ground
"Track redistribution", was the general conclusion
health and safetys compromised, and we're stuck here travelling on the rails

What a pitiful state (hey hey), our railways in this time
and travelling is impossible, in the gen'ral publics mind
What a pitiful state (hey hey), our railways in this time
and travelling is impossible, in the gen'ral publics mind
and travelling is impossible, in the gen'ral publics mind
and travelling is impossible, in the gen'ral publics mind
