"Train Round The Bend" as written by and Lou Reed....
Train round the bend
Takin me away from my country
I'm sick of the trees
Take me to the city
Train comin' round the bend
Oh train comin' round the bend

Been in the country Oh much too long
Trying to be a farmer
But nothing that I planted never seems to grow
Train comin' round the bend
Train comin' round the bend

Hey I am just a city boy
And really not the country kind
Oh I need the city streets and I need your light
To see bend comin' round the bend
The train comin' round the bend

Allright
Oh Oh

Once
She's going twice
She's going to the loop up and down
She's going twice
She's going the train comin round the bend
You know the train comin round the bend

And I'm out of nowhere
Takin' me back where I belong
I've been here once and I don't take it tonight
For the train comin round the bend
The train comin round the bend
Oh Allright!

    My InterpretationI bet he wrote it when he was living with his parents in the suburbs.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is about how the VU never found commercial success and Lou Reed growing tired of the music industry.

    General CommentI know it's not every song about drugs, but it might be.
    Is like if in the country he's trying to leave his drug adicction, but he finds out that he can't (or don't want to) and returns to the city (to the drugs) where he's sure he belongs.
