"The Shot Heard 'Round the World" as written by and Martin Johnson....
I used to hideaway and only try to save myself
From falling in love, or staying up on the shelf
I was afraid to walk the streets alone, or by your side
Just waiting up for something that could save my life

There's no way out
Stuck inside my head now
Headed for a break down
When I should be headed for the door

'Cause I found out there's no such thing as
A miracle, a miracle
And I know you can't hide
It's the shot heard 'round the world
Lights out
There's no such thing as
A miracle, a miracle
But, baby, don't cry
It's the shot heard 'round the world

If we could light up every street with our cellular phones
Then maybe we can save ourselves, or maybe we won't
Well, it doesn't even matter if we got no plan
As long as you're holding on to somebody's hand

Because there's no way out
Stuck inside your head now
But I know we can break out
If we can all just step outside the door

'Cause I found out there's no such thing as
A miracle, a miracle
And I know you can't hide
It's the shot heard 'round the world
Lights out
There's no such thing as
A miracle, a miracle
But, baby, don't cry
It's the shot heard 'round the world

I'm gonna kiss the sky tonight
Maybe you should try it
I'm gonna learn to fly tonight
And you're invited
'Cause all the things that we've become
Are making me so fucking numb
And this time I have had enough
Goodbye, and say hello to the end of the world

I found out there's no such thing as
A miracle, a miracle
And I know you can't hide
It's the shot heard 'round the world
Lights out
There's no such thing as
A miracle, a miracle
But, baby, don't cry
It's the shot heard 'round the world

Lights out
There's no such thing as
A miracle, a miracle
But, baby, don't cry
It's the shot heard 'round the world

    General CommentWatching an interview on youtube, and Martin says 'everything had to be perfect'. Followed by John saying 'we spent 2 days on the sound of a snare drum, it had to be perfect' if you listen to this album, it is perfect

    General CommentI agree, this is one of the two or so good songs. Because at least it sounds slightly different!! But hey, when I like one of their songs, I REALLY like it... the only thing is, what's with the maniacal laughter? It's a little too realistic... haha.
