Add your thoughts 41 Comments. As for the title i think i heard it before the london shooting of Jean charles de menezes titled “trains to brazil” on zane lowe’s show on radio1, couldn’t be sure bout this one tho. General Comment I think derekdavies is rigth, the song is a kind social commentary embedded in a kind of tribute to a girl who has been a victim of terrorism. There are so many factors to be brought into why people express grievances over things. And I still think of you on cold winter mornings” seems to be talking bought after the girl has died and people are phonin to console and comfort him, and he reminisces about a time when never would have beleived that our lives could be effected by the “erronous fools”, terrorists. He curses those who live their lives unhappy, “from one day to the next”, and says “let them take you next”, as you should just be thankful to be here on this earth, living this life, as it could be “you tomorrow [or] next year”. I think it’s “prophet and their bombs have had another sucess” rather than “prophets and theri pawns”.

Fyfe seems like a lovely guy so I doubt he intended it that way. Create an account with SongMeanings to post comments, submit lyrics, and more.
Fyfe discusses the ever-present feeling of distrust and suspicion as a result of terrorist attacks, which resulted in the wrongful murder of the aforementioned Brazilian man on the subway last year. I do like the idea of those final lines being a massive rant after losing someone he holds dear. It seems easier to comprehend if grief was playing a major part of it as losing people can tear us down the middle and react in confrontational ways.
It just slightly comes across that way. After this guillemots trains to brazil of event you do tend to be extremely shaken up and adrenaline fuelled and want everyone to make the best of life though, so it evokes it perfectly.
General Comment But that doesn’t make sense with the guillemots trains to brazil of the song, particularly the “they’ll still remind me of when we were at school” bit. The view expressed that it’s aimed at those who don’t want to do anything about their current situation and feel more content to complain without action seems somewhat valid but, even then, it’s not really expressed well through the lyrics.
We do not have any tags for Trains to Brazil lyrics. As a philosophy of life itself it’s something I don’t agree with.
