"Tube Disasters" as written by Colin Latter and Kevin Biscoe....
I love tube disasters
I wanna marry a tube disaster
I want another one like the last one
'Cause I live for tube disasters, yeah

Build up some speed, don't shut your eyes
Make sure that everyone in the train dies
You don't get no prize, no time to say goodbyes
Just smile everyone, you'll be on TV tonight, that's right

I love tube disasters
I wanna marry a tube disaster
I want another one like the last one
'Cause I live for tube disasters, yeah

Go through a wall, forget about the brake
It's so much easier than the pills you can take
I go through moorgate and I'm wide awake
But no bloody driver's gone and made a mistake, that's yet
Is it me that needs a home?
Not likely, vicarious of living rids your boredom

I love tube disasters
I wanna marry a tube disaster
I want another one like the last one
Cause I live for tube disasters, yeah

    My InterpretationIf you restric the meaning of this song to train wrecks... The line "I wanna mary a tube disaster" doesn't make much sense. What does marriage have to do with train disasters ? Nothing.
    BUT, if you think the singer compares a failed marriage to a tube disaster... Then it all makes sense.
    I think this song song is really about the people who get married and form a family but WITHOUT mesuring the consequences and the responsability for this choice...

    I think the line "It's so much easier than the pills you can take" refers to emergency contraception pills.
    "But no bloody driver's gone and made a mistake, that's yet" is about not taking responsability for the upbringing of your kids and letting society take car of it.
    "Is it me that needs a home?"... Here, the use of the word "home" makes it quite clear that this song is a reference to family (notice the word chosen is "home" and not "house"... Key difference !). And this question seems to be asked by the father who, once the disaster as happened and it's too late, finally wonders if he had kids in order to give life, take care and educate, or if he did it for HIM ? In other words : is he the child that needs to be taken care of ?

    The line "I want another one like the last one" refers to having more and more children... Almost like if a family ressembles a factory, where a child is not considered as an individual but just as "another one like the last one".

    I think the singer specifically chose "tube disaster" and not "airplane crash" or "train wreck" because when you're inside the tube you don't see the world around you. Suggesting that the same thing happens when parents put all their attention on raising a family... Of course this is an exaggerated perception of things but, after all this is a punk song and punk isn't really about diplomacy and precaution, is it ?
