"The Cry/The Electric Co." (live from St. Goarshausen)

Somebody cry, somebody cry
Somebody cry
Won't somebody try, somebody try
Somebody try something quick
Don't you look back, don't you look back
Don't you look back
Will somebody cry, somebody cry
Somebody cry

Well, I can't see why or what for
What for, what for
Break it up

Boy, stupid boy
Don't sit at the table until you're able to
Toy, broken toy
You shout and shout till you're inside out

If you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.
Alright

Red, running red
You play for real, take your feel
Hold your head
You don't shout, you're spoon fed

Till you don't know
Electric Co.
Till you don't know
Electric Co.

Break it up
I love the crowd
Lift me up

If you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.
