"Enfilade" as written by and Cedric/hinojos Bixler....
This could last us all a lifetime
Limbs intact, untouched
On the screen of a video tape
Confined to bedposts
We wait as lepers
Upheld at knife's reach
We covet all the status quo
This syringe will take a lifespan
It's filled with bait and tackle
Try and catch us if you can

[Chorus:]
Sacrifice on railroad tracks
Freight train coming [Repeat: x2]
Unconscious tied and gagged
Freight train coming [Repeat: x2]
Sacrifice on railroad tracks
Freight train coming [Repeat: x2]

Meet us at the corner
Of fifth and Pontiac
Make sure that no one else is with you
If you wish to see them alive again
Then humor me with this request
Humor me with this request
In basements we will hide
Amnesia in our alibis

[Chorus]
Sacrifice on railroad tracks
Freight train coming [Repeat: x2]
Unconscious tied and gagged
Freight train coming [Repeat: x2]
Sacrifice on railroad tracks
Freight train coming [Repeat: x2]

They kept a close eye, on your get well incentive [Repeat: x2]

[Chorus x2]
Sacrifice on railroad tracks
Freight train coming [Repeat: x2]
Unconscious tied and gagged
Freight train coming [Repeat: x2]
Sacrifice on railroad tracks
Freight train coming [Repeat: x2]

    General CommentYeah but also drugs - 'This syringe will take a lifespan
    It's filled with bait and tackle
    Try and catch us if you can'.

    General CommentI always thought it said "at leisure in our alibis" which to me sounds better and makes more sense IMO "/

    General CommentThe meaning of the song is totally clear. He is obviously talking about a kidnapping and a ransom. the beginning of the song totally gives it away. if you have the cd youll know what i mean.

    General Commentthis song seems to be about kidnappers or kidnapping, at the beginning of the song there is a ransom phone call, and the lyrics "Make sure that no one else is with you If you wish to see them alive again" and "Sacrifice on railroad tracks Freight train coming" are dead give-aways.

    General CommentOK u guys seriously listen up, ATD-I uses imagery. So it SEEMS to be about kidnapping, most likely a person, now figure out wut they are kidnapping by arranging the words in simpler phrases. Just like i did with quarantined. ATD-I always has deeper meaning.

    General Commentis that Iggy Pop speaking at the start - see his name is on the cd inlay card but he doesn't sing on any songs...
