  • East London's not a bomb site
    It is a treasure chest
    We use our penguin costumes
    More than our evening dress
    She said I should come over
    Though the music's not my type
    Don't you know I'd chop a limb off
    Just to have a good time

    Shut up and move with me, move with me, or, or get out of my face
    I didn't queue for an hour to leave straight away
    Shut up and stay with me, stay with me, or, or let go of my hand
    The lasers fill our minds with empty plans
    I never knew I was a techno fan

    This is not a weird weekend
    It's an angry wormhole
    I'm talking like a city boy
    And drinking with a northern soul
    She said I should come over
    Though it's carnage at times
    It still seems I'd chop a limb off
    Before I put up a fight

    Shut up and move with me, move with me, or, or get out of my face
    I didn't queue for an hour to leave straight away
    Shut up and stay with me, stay with me, or, or let go of my hand
    The lasers fill our minds with empty plans
    I never knew I was a techno

    We are the 1980s
    We are the Detroit lights
    And I never wanna, I never wanna see this stop
    I'm in debt to you
    But don't feed me plant food

    Shut up and move with me, move with me, or, or get out of my face
    I didn't spend 20 sheets and not cut a shape
    Shut up and stay with me, stay with me, or, or let go of my hand
    The lasers fill our minds with empty plans
    I never knew I was a techno fan
    I never knew I was a techno fan
    I never knew I was a techno fan Writer/s: DANIEL JOSEPH HAGGIS, MATTHEW EDWARD MURPHY, TORD OEVERLAND KNUDSEN
