Shake it, like a ladder to the sun
Makes me feel like a madman on the run
Find me, never, never far gone
So get your leather, leather
Leather on, on, on, on

You're a zero!
What's your name?
No one's gonna ask you
Better find out where they want you to go!

Try and hit the spot
Get to know it in the dark
Get to know it whether you're
Crying, crying, crying, oh oh!
Can you climb, climb, climb higher?

Shake it, like a ladder to the sun
Makes me feel like a madman on the run
No you're never, never far gone
So get your leather, leather
Leather on, on, on, on

You're a zero!
What's your name?
No one's gonna ask you
Better find out where they want you to go!

Try and hit the spot
Get to know it in the dark
Get to know it whether you're
Crying, crying, crying, oh oh!
Can you climb, climb, climb higher?

Was it the cure?
Shell shock!
Was it the cure?
Hope not!
Was it the cure?
Shell shock!
Was it the cure?
What's your name?

You're a zero
What's your name?
No one's gonna ask you
Better find out where they want you to go

Try and hit the spot
Get to know it in the dark
Get to know it whether you're
Crying, crying, crying, oh oh!
Can you climb, climb, climb higher

Was it the cure?
Shell shock!
Was it the cure?
Hope not!
Was it the cure?
Shell shock!
Was it the cure?
Hope not!

What's your name? (x7)

    Instead of "whether you're crying... Oh oh" it should be "whether you're a crime, crime, crime of love". That's what karen o sings, even in the video.

    Oh, and sometimes I think it's "crying, crying, crying alone" instead of "crying oh oh." Either way it makes sense. :)

    Yep, often feel like a zero, and hope to climb higher...

    "Shell shock" is two words.

    I like the song enough, but for me it's not complete without the music video. Love SF!
