  • And all I see is little dots
    Some are smeared and some are spots
    Feels like a murder but that's alright
    Somebody said there's too much light
    Pull down the shade and it's alright
    It'll be over in a minute or two.

    I'm charged up don't put me down
    Don't feel like talking don't mess around
    I feel mean I feel okay
    I'm charged up electricity

    The boys are making a big mess
    This makes the girls all start to laugh
    I don't know what they're talking about
    The boys are worried, the girls are shocked
    They pick the sound and let it drop
    Nobody know what they're talking about

    I'm charged up I'm kinda wooden
    I'm barely moving I study motion
    I study myself I fooled myself
    I'm charged up it's pretty intense
    I'm charged up don't put me down
    Don't feel like talking don't mess around
    I feel mean I feel okay
    I'm charged up electricity Writer/s: DAVID BYRNE, BRIAN ENO
