Inspired by travelling on the London Underground (subway), this song deals with attachment to home and detachment from each other.


Rushin' 'round again. Gotta make my train.
No time to attain some peace of mind.
Stop to give some change for the music that he plays.
a pod is not as good as when it's live.

They say "I'm not here for you. Leave me alone."

Be it far from me to pretend that I can see all,
but a story's behind each and every face.
I try to send a smile to the girl just down the aisle.
As our eyes meet, she soon turns her head away.

As if to say "I'm not here for you. Leave me alone."

"I'm not here for you. I'm just trying to get home."


This is what it's like when you're travelling underground.

Oh. Home. Home.

This is what it's like.
When you're travelling underground.



from Twelve, released June 10, 2012
Written and composed by Neil P. Oxtoby.

Neil Oxtoby: vocals, guitars, bass guitar.
