"Train" as written by and William Gregory....
Plastic brain scar
I want laser
I'm your chauffeur
With high
Gloss highs
Take you where you want

Can't stop, oh, off the train
Train, yeah, yeah, yeah

Wolf lady
Sucks my brain
Apricot
Sunrise came
LA nights
Just roll in

Can't stop, oh, off the train
Train, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can't stop, oh, off the train
Train, yeah, yeah, yeah

Nasal douche
Poolside line
Soft lit tan
What's your sign?
Take my hand
Just roll in

Can't stop, oh, off the train
Train, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can't stop, oh, off the train
Train, yeah, yeah, yeah

Can't stop, oh, off the train
Train, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can't stop, oh, off the train
Train, yeah, yeah, yeah

    General CommentHmm, I really don't think that this song is about just sex. She went to L.A. and witnessed a superficial culture. And it definitely is not just a feel good song. It is on a surface level, but like all Goldfrapp songs you have to delve deeper. There is a strong, dark undercurrent here, one that is critical of this plastic lifestyle. Cosmetic surgery, super-tan's, glossy, glamourous, people. And most of all drugs and promiscuity. DRUGS DRUGS DRUGS. Doing poolside lines of coke and using a nasal douche to keep your nose healthy, the Wolflady sucks her brains, as well as the fact that she is the train, the chauffeur of sex for men. So, practically what goldfrappfan said, just with the dichotomy of a happy, feel easy song with a dark, critical undercurrent.

    General CommentShe wrote this after a trip to L.A. The "plaster brain scar I want laser" is about laser sugery. The song is about sex. Like the rest of the album it has a positve feel.

    General Commenthot music video, she's sexy!!!!
    The songs about club life in L.A. I think, and a train in slang is a ho, everyone gets on and off, right? and nasal douche and poolside lines are slang for coke, and softlit tan, what's your sign obvoiusly flirty messges. Just roll in meaning she's having fun. Plastic brain scar meaning L.A. has changed her and now she wants laser!!! Wolflady sucks her brain and now she's this man stealing sex craving tart terrorizing the Los Angeles streets.
    I love it!!!
