"Bicycles" as written by Shepherd Rupert Alexander J. Jarvis, Robert Dylan Thomas, Orlando Thomas Penhale Weeks, Felix White and Hugo White....
Service is suspended
Service shall resume
Service running late again
Service running smooth
Space becomes so lonely, with these feeling of mistrust
Because the monster in the cupboard has made us feel we must

Spot the train, train
Spot a hole
Spot the train, spot the monster

And everyone's buying bicycles

Cities looking empty
Cities running scared
Cities got new friends
That they cities really cared
The looks are trifle shifty, and their not about to change
Cos no one likes what they are not, and slowly we're strange

Spot the train, train
Spot a hole
Spot the train, spot the monster

The quickest route to paradise
Is a short commute to paradise
And a sharp salute to paradise

And everyone's buying bicycles

    My InterpretationMost definately related to terrorism.
    "The quickest route to paradise
    Is a short commute to paradise
    And a sharp salute to paradise" Muslim extremist terrorism is based around the idea that once they have martyred themselves to kill the 'infidels' they will be sent to paradise where there are 72 virgins....waheyyy! (u probably all knew that...just wanted to make sure.

    My interpretation which i feel quite confident about is that it is an attack on the terrorism and saying how it has affected london.
    "Space becomes so lonely, with these feeling of mistrust
    Because the monster in the cupboard has made us feel we must"
    This talks about how we don't speak on the trains because there is so much mistrust due to bombers.

    General CommentPretty obvious- but this one's about being fed up with public transport (trains namely), and everyone buying bicycles.

    General Commentthis song, i think, is about the london bombings...
    "spot the train, spot the monster" referring to the terrorists
    basically just refers to what i think are the 7/7 bombings all the way through the song

    General Commenti think its that everyone nowadays is so pararnoid about everything. things are so unpredictable (first verse) meaning that no one trusts anything anymore: "cause no one likes what they're not"
    maybe the paranoia stems from the bombing, but i think now its just become second nature for people not to trust anyone anymore because of society in general.
    the first time it says stop the monster not spot but i dont know why
    and im pretty sure it does say trainspotter ooooooh, thats the best bit :)

    General Commentit's about drug use...trainspotting refers to finding the vein and what not...and a trainspotter is one who uses the veins in order to get their fix
