"Shake a Fist" as written by and Joseph/taylor Goddard....
I'm ready to try this
The center's a sea pit
I could be wealthy
With nothing to stop me

I'm ready to try this
(I move underwater)
The center's a sea pit
(I eat water slaughter)
I could be wealthy
(Inside a moon and palace)
With nothing to stop me
(Let's rain another chalice)

[Chorus]
Out and out and out
Out and out and out
Shake a fist
And let's breathe it in without

[Chorus x3]

You said if I tried this
(I'd be teleported)
But when you first tried this
(Your mind de-contorted)
And if this is heaven
(I might have to tell you)
I'm gonna give hell, just
(A quick one's over)

[Chorus x4]

"Before we go any further
I'd like to show you all a game I made up.
This game is called 'Sounds of the Studio'.
And it can be played with any record
Including this one. You may be surprised!
Now if you have a pair of headphones
You better get 'em out and get 'em cranked up
'Cause they're really gonna help you"

That's a pure solution
That's my magic potion
That's the incantation

That's a pure solution
That's my magic potion
That's the incantation

Bahhhh

[Chorus x4]

You said if I tried this
(I'd be teleported)
But when you first tried this
(Your mind de-contorted)
And if this is heaven
(I might have to tell you)
I'm gonna give hell, just
(A quick one's over)

I'm ready to try this
(I move underwater)
The center's a sea pit
(I eat water slaughter)
I could be wealthy
(Inside a moon and palace)
With nothing to stop me
(Let's rain another chalice)

    Lyric Correctionjesus, what a nonsensical attempt at transcription this is. here are the ACTUAL lyrics to the song. you know, ones that make sense.

    I'm ready to try this
    There's so much to see here
    I could be wealthy
    With nothing to stop me

    I'm ready to try this
    (I move underwater)
    There's so much to see here
    (I eat what I slaughter)
    I could be wealthy
    (Inside a moon and palace)
    With nothing to stop me
    (Let's raise another chalice)

    Out and out and out
    Out and out and out
    Shake a fist
    And let's breathe within without

    You said if I tried this
    (I'd be teleported)
    But when you first tried this
    (Your body contorted)
    And if this is heaven
    (I might have to tell you)
    I'm gonna give hell, just
    (A quick once over)

    Out and out and out
    Out and out and out
    Shake a fist
    And let's breathe within without

    "Before we go any further
    I'd like to show you all a game I made up
    This game is called 'Sounds of the Studio'
    And it can be played with any record
    Including this one. You may be surprised!
    Now if you have a pair of headphones
    You better get 'em out and get 'em cranked up
    'Cause they're really gonna help you with this one"

    That's a pure solution
    That's my magic potion
    That's the incantation

    Out and out and out
    Out and out and out
    Shake a fist
    And let's breathe within without

    You said if I tried this
    (I'd be teleported)
