"Shelter" as written by and Shaw....
We`re building a shelter
On the edge of mount Verona
It`s a corrugated palace
With a tree lined avenue

If you`re frightened of the future
And you`re watching o`er your shoulder
If you`re getting kind of anxious and nervous
Come and stay here till it`s through

This a`int no ark of Noah
No mockery of history
A taxi ride to nowhere
Just a drifting boat at sea
Repeat

My sister is working
For every day pleasure
The car in the driveway gleaming
The kids watching MTV

She was born to the Parish
Says there`s no way of leaving
Says her rainbow is slowly fading ... fading

This ain't no ark of Noah
No mockery of history
A taxi ride to nowhere
Just a drifting boat at sea

This ain't no ark of Noah
No mockery of history
A taxi ride to nowhere
Just a drifting boat at
