A song about a week-end in Reading in 1996

lyrics

All jacked up and out of cash
Got nothing left to do
Been robbed of all my stash
Had to utilise the glue
I feel a steam-train rushing through my brain
I don't know if I'll ever be the same
I'm gonna take this train to oblivion

Might just blow my J S A
Down at Mandy's on the way
To the Turtle, grab a beer
Divide my presence – disappear
A tsunami of delusion floods my brains
I don't know if I'll ever be the same
I'm gonna ride this wave to Oblivion

Claire plays the slotty up the Junction,
Trading hearts with the beautiful sunken
Joey's had a few, and now he reckons he's playing down the
After Dark with PJ & Duncan – well he would
But he don't care, why should he?
We don't care, why should we?
Do one, do or die
It's the night time
It's the right time
Come alive time
It's all right time

Woke up in another day
And everything's the same
The picture never leaves its frame
I've got no-one else to blame

I feel a steam-train rushing through my brain
I don't know if I'll ever be the same
I'm on the train to oblivion

A tsunami of delusion floods my brains
I don't know if I'll ever be the same
I'm gonna ride this wave to oblivion
