"I Travel" as written by Derek Forbes, James Kerr, Michael Joseph Macneil, Brian Mcgee and Charles Burchill....
Cities, buildings falling down
Ideal homes falling down
These pictures I see on the wall
Timeless leaders stand so tall
Assassin in a hit and run
Asia steals a new born son
Evacuees and refugees
Presidents and monarchies

Travel round
I travel round
Decadence and pleasure towns
Tragedies, luxuries, statues, parks and galleries

Europe has a language problem
Talk, talk, talk, talk, talking on
In central Europe
Men are marching
Marching on and marching on
Love songs playing in the restaurants
Airport playing "Bi Some Lo"

Travel round
I travel round
Decadence and pleasure towns
Tragedies, luxuries, statues, parks and galleries

Europe has a language problem

Europe has a language problem
America has a language problem
I Travel
Euro-Bureau-Interpol
Making love to the criminals
Asia has a language problem
I Travel
And on and on and on and on and on and on and on

    General CommentNever heard anything like I Travel before or after either, totally unique sound. Krautrock on speed.

    Touring with a rock and roll band, you see a lot of things, good and bad. Here in a frantic pace change is coming fast, buildings falling down, men are marching and language is a problem. Communication is the problem. How to understand each other.

    General CommentIts about the people & places of Europe. Their lyrics did not go downhill after this song!

    General CommentThe second verse lyric is 'Airport playing Brian Eno', a reference to Eno's ambient album 'Music For Airports'.

    Artistically, with regards to lyrics, it was all downhill for this band after this. Musically, they were superb until Mick MacNeil's departure.
