"Dislocation" as written by Dennis Leigh and William Currie....
Running down an empty street
Perhaps it was a railway station
Smell of ??? cologne
The sound of a celebration

[Chorus]
Oh-oh-oh dislocation
Oh-oh-oh dislocation

Just a swimmer growing dimmer in the glimmer of a summer
Waving gladly, swimming madly, never never going under

[Chorus]

The sun was going down one quiet evening
Someone came into the room while I was half-asleep
We spoke for a while, I couldn't see his face
Later on when he was gone, I realized I didn't catch his name

[Chorus:Repeat x3]

Just a swimmer growing dimmer in the glimmer of a summer
Waving gladly, swimming madly, never never going under

    General CommentIn some parts of the song it seems like he's describing a dream.

    General CommentPerhaps an enterlude of sorts into "Mr. X" on the next album? Searching for that mysterious person he encountered in this song.

    The third line is "Smell of eau de cologne".
