"Outside the Trains Don't Run on Time" as written by Dave Allen, Hugo H. Burnham, Andrew Gill and Jon King....
He's become nostalgic
Wants to own tomorrow
Discipline, is his passion
Now, he says there's none

Outside the trains don't run on time
He believes it's no coincidence
He thinks sunblock will track him down
Home, it's no castle
He wants his wife to run, and fetch
Order, he's obsessed with order, order

Discipline, is his passion
Now, he says there's none
Order, his obsession
Order, his obsession
Now, he says there's none

Outside the trains don't run on time
He believes it's no coincidence
He thinks sunblock will track him down
Home, it's no castle
He wants his wife, to run, and fetch
Order
The trains don't run on time

Nostalgia
Discipline
Is his passion
Now, he says there's none

Outside the trains don't run on time

    General Commenthe's become nostalgic
    wants to own tomorrow
    discipline - is his passion
    now he says there's none

    outside the trains don't run on time
    he believes it's not coincidence
    he thinks some ?? will drag him down

    home - it's no castle
    he wants his wife to run and fetch
    order - he's obsessed with order, order

    discipline - is his passion
    now he says there's none
    order - his obsession
    order - his obsession
    now he says there's none

    outside the trains don't run on time
    he believes it's not coincidence
    he thinks some ?? will drag him down

    home - it's no castle
    he wants his wife to run and fetch
    order - the trains don't run on time

    General CommentThis is a song about Fascists. "Keeping up nostalgic/Discipline is his passion", "He's obsessed with order".
    Furthermore "When Mussolini was here, the trains used to run on time" is a phrase often used by people who are nostalgic for Fascism.
