"World Shut Your Mouth (Julian Cope cover)" as written by and Julian Cope....
She's flying in the face of fashion now
She seems to have a will of her own
She's flying in the face of fashion now
She seems to have it all chromed
The time was going so frequently
She said if I try harder again
She's flying in the face of fashion now
She sells the world annually to a friend

She sings, "World, shut your mouth, shut your mouth
Put your head back in the clouds and shut your mouth
World, shut your mouth, shut your mouth
Put your head back in the clouds and shut your mouth"

She always used to live so secretly
She'd be seen in and out of the sound
She's taking on the role of the four winds now
She's having tea there out in the crowd
She's flying in the face of fashion now
She seems to have a will of her own
In lieu of what you're saying so frequently
She seems to have, it all adds up

She sings, "World, shut your mouth, shut your mouth
Put your head back in the clouds and shut your mouth
World, shut your mouth, shut your mouth
Put your head back in the clouds and shut your mouth"

She sings, "World, shut your mouth, shut your mouth
Put your head back in the clouds and shut your mouth
World, shut your mouth, shut your mouth
Put your head back in the clouds and shut your mouth"

She sings, "World, shut your mouth, shut your mouth
Put your head back in the clouds and shut your mouth
World, shut your mouth, shut your mouth
Put your head back in the clouds and shut your mouth"

"World, shut your mouth, shut your mouth
Put your head back in the clouds and shut your mouth
World, shut your mouth, shut your mouth
Put your head back in the clouds and shut your mouth"

    General CommentI thought this was a very un-death cabish song, but loved it. not quite as much as their original ones, but they do make the song their own. What i don't like about it is it's very boybandish.

    General CommentI have only heard DCFC's cover one time, but I was so impressed that I'd love to hear both versions played "back to back", just for good measure! Great job! =)

    General CommentI like this song a lot, but I don't really get what it means. I just wonder what "flying in the face of fasion" is. I think that "world shut your mouth" means that she just wants everyone to stop talking about her.

    General CommentI think it has something to do with the girl not being well known because it said 'she used to live so secretly' but now that she is known more, she wants the world to mind their own business. Im not really sure it that is actually what it has to do with but that what i heard

    General CommentFlying in the face of fashion: This girl is trying to be herself in a world that doesn't easily accept nonconformists like her.

    World shut your mouth: She just wants the world to leave her alone so she can do what she wants.

    General Commentall i've heard is the DCFC version of this. . .
    and the meaning to me:
    about a girl who is a rebel and just wants to live out her life as she pleases.
    she's out to prove the world wrong.
