"Tremblings Of Trails" as written by Henry Dartnall, Thomas Dartnall and Oliver Askew....
We come undone in foreign parts
Our home is heavy in our hearts
But there's a bubble in Karachi
A Puerto Rican Joan and Chachi
The spirit of this place has long gone
In fact I think it never had one
So terrible and out of place
We've got the same decrepit stars

Got my papers and my ticket for the train
To anywhere, anywhere (x2)

Got my papers
Got my papers

We tread with people in their paths
Follow their signs and mystic marks
A mug of tea a cup of Sake
A Virgin Mary with the Marquis
By canoe and coracle
I solely own my carryall
Counting different coloured cars
We've got the same decrepit Stars
My plan has failed
Tremblings of trails
Yearning comforts of the dales

Got my papers
Got my papers
Got my papers
Got my papers and my ticket for the train
To anywhere, anywhere

    General Commentthis song rules, cant understand why it has no comments.
    Its not easy to understand though, obviously something to do with travelling, although the lyrics are at time slightly non sensical: a virigin mary with a marquee???

    General Commenti think this song is about how everything is the same no matter where we go, and how the singer can't escape the bordome he feels. Also, i think he's saying it doesn't matter where he goes because nowhere has anything to offer him, all he will ever truly own is his carryall bag.
