Life, monotony, holding your breath and coming up for air ................


In A Shell 1983 & 88

Take a ride on a plane or a train or a
drain going down in the ground just to get away
Put the world that you have in a sack on your back
get around outta town ‘fore you go insane
Do your thing everyday
Time stands still for no-one whatever they say

We’re in a shell
I can you feel it breaking
It’s how’d you say
‘Voulez vous’

Take a walk take run in the sun
you’re the one who got it wrong no-one else to blame
What you want you don’t know what you don’t is a role
Work a week, sleep, ’til you’re there again
All you say is ‘it’s a mess’ everyday
You can stay where you stand in a dream

You’re in a shell
Can’t you feel it breaking
Like I say
‘Voulez vous’

Safe in your shell
‘Til the walls start breaking, cracking, falling
It’s how’d you say
‘Voulez vous’
