If you're taking a flight At the speed of light You're shaking your heads to the band If you're there on your horse But you're not on the force We're taking this place to the ground
In the heat of the night When you're fists are alight Forged on anvils of steel If your body's on fire About to expire We go to the threshold of pain
[Chorus] Pull your head back Hold your hands high Shake your body If it's too loud And you're burning hot fill your heads With heavy metal thunder Heavy metal thunder
On the wings of an eagle You're hoping to fly Holding your hands to the sky In a blue sea of denim Checkin' the band With your banners and scarves held on high
If you think something more You'll come down to the front Don't sit there and do as they say We're an army of thousands Surrounded by light Tearing this place to the ground

Frank from Osnabrueck, GermanyBiff Byford stated once in an interview for german Rock Hard magazine: "The song was actually slower when we recorded it. Late at night, while we were sleeping, the producer worked alone in the sudio and speeded the whole thing a little up. That´s why my voice sounds a bit weird and very high on that song. We liked the version though and left things that way."
Walk The Moon vocalist Nicholas Petricca got the idea for "Shut Up and Dance" when he and his girlfriend were taking forever to get drinks at a Los Angeles club bar. Petricca was getting frustrated, so his girlfriend told him to, "Shut up and dance with me!'"
