"A Subway Called 'You'" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
Here we are
We drift like gas
On someone else's bed
I pay high you know

Here we are
How old are you
It's just a job to me
Here the ladies always ring twice

Thought you'd slip away tonight with me
In a subway I called 'you'
Hello you no more this talk of
'My boys will be yours'
No more 'I'

This conversation drains
My patience dry.
Here the business always rings twice
No relaxing for the boys tonight

In a subway I called 'you'
Here the tension always slows twice
Shed one tear it's just routine for now
In a subway I called 'you'

    General CommentI always thought this song was pretty clearly written about a prostitute. The imagery Numan uses paints a seedy and sad portait and the music nicely slides and glides around the words. I also like how Numan depicts (his) emotional detachment.

    General CommentI definitely agree.. a subway cause it's cheap and easy. "shed one tear" though? maybe the whole idea of it is just sad..
