I hold the world between my hands

She feels so light like she might try to escape tonight

She’s so full of helium and she tries to escape

But I catch her on my string

And she will stay another day, just one more day

I look at the world 
I like what I like

Listen to the world I hear noises in the night

Late October in a Berlin bar

There moves an army in a surplus car

We’re playing with fire so we’d better land soon 

We’d better not burn

I look at the world 
I like what I like

Listen to the world I hear explosions in the night

Shellshocked, shellshocked, shellshocked

Shellshocked, shellshocked, shellshocked, shellshocked

I’m the transistor resistor I’m nuclear fear

I think I’ll invest in a movie career

I think I’ll direct yeah that’s just what we need

I’m chasing the clock

I’m racing racing racing

I’m shellshocked

I’m shellshocked

I’m shellshocked

I’m shellshocked

The sky is falling and I’m shellshocked, shellshocked

The earth is shaking and I’m shellshocked, shellshocked

The sky is falling and I’m shellshocked, shellshocked

The floor is moving and I’m shellshocked, shellshocked

Shellshocked, shellshocked, shellshocked shellshocked

Shellshocked, shellshocked, shellshocked, shellshocked

Shellshocked, shellshocked, shellshocked shellshocked

Shellshocked, shellshocked, shellshocked, shellshocked
