slow train to dawn - the the (with great backing vocals by neneh cherry)..although come to think of it apart from the title I don't think it has anything to do with trains

more The The - Boiling Point
 
 "At reflections in
 The subway glass
 Fluorescent lit skin
 Looks harsh
 So best pretend
 To be asleep
 In case you have to
 Give up your seat
 To anyone less fortunate than...
 
 But the train stops
 Beneath the streets
 Shift your legs
 Tap your feet
 Open an eye
 Start to speak
 But the words get stuck
 Between your teeth"

"Bound for Hell" Love and Rockets
 
      I was riding on a train that wasn't bound for glory
      Riding on a train, the train was bound for hell
      Riding on a train that wasn't bound for glory, that's for sure
      Riding on a train that's bound for hell
 
      The engine with human blood was damp
      The headlight was her brimstone lamp
      And then for fuel I shoveled in bones
      and the furnace roared with a thousand groans
 
      The tank was filled with lager beer
      The devil himself was engineer
      The passengers were a mixed up crew
      Churchmen, atheists, Baptists too
 ...
