"Roads Girdle The Globe" as written by and Andy Partridge....
Am I asleep
Or am I fast
Your every race
You first, you last

Roads girdle the globe
We safe in your concrete robe
Hail mother motor
Hail piston rotor
Hail wheel
Roads girdle the globe

Whoa, oh oh oh
Whoa, oh oh oh

Am I tied in
Or do I turn
Your only incense
You tire burn

Roads girdle the globe
We safe in your concrete robe
Hail mother motor
Hail piston rotor
Hail wheel
Roads girdle the globe

Whoa, oh oh oh
Whoa, oh oh oh

Steer me Anna
Steer me Anna
Steer me Anna
Steer me Anna
Steer me Anna
Steer me Anna
Steer me Anna
Steer me Anna
Steer me Anna
Steer me Anna
Steer me Anna
Steer me Anna
Steer me Anna
Steer me Anna
Steer me Anna
Steer me Anna

Whoa, oh oh oh
Whoa, oh oh oh

Am I get there
When is A, B
Your iron, oil and steel
Your sacred three

Roads girdle the globe
We safe in your concrete robe
Roads girdle the globe
We safe in your concrete robe
Roads girdle the globe
We safe in your concrete robe
Roads girdle the globe
We safe in your concrete robe
Hail mother motor
Hail piston rotor
Hail wheel
Hail mother motor
Hail piston rotor
Hail wheel
Hail mother motor
Hail piston rotor
Hail wheel

    General CommentWhy has nobody written about this song? It's certainly the most interesting on the album. What a bizarre chord progression and driving bassline! Wot u got?

    General CommentWhat a great song, it's a lot more aggressive and punk-oriented than the others on this album. I think it's simply about machines and technology being so widespread that they become part of life.

    Song MeaningAndy Partridge (Who wrote the lyric) said it's an ambiguous hymn to cars and how people worship them.

    I don't recommend worshiping worldly things, It leads to destruction. Rather, Worship Jesus.
