Lyrics

These lyrics are transcribed from the performance at Harpa - Norðurljós, Reykjavik, Iceland on 30th December 2017 and are likely to change if this song is recorded and released

As you walk into the cathedral
Hoping that you will feel something
But all you feel is empty
So you think that you are hungry
That's why you're always eating
Frightened in front of famous buildings

And I am always watching
Although you never see me

I see a lot of people
I see a lot of things here
Some people taking photos
Some people eating ice-cream
Some people standing in a line

Some people say that they can see it
Some people say that they can see it
Yeah

Sometimes I am Pharaoh
Sometimes I am Chaplin
Sometimes I'm made of stone
But always out there watching

I sat next to a woman
Who asked if God was like a camera
That automatically took a picture
If you said the words
She took a photo of the altar
Although she knew it was forbidden
She's frightened of damnation
I said "why don't you repent then?"

Then she started crying
Then she started crying

Oh, jump

Everybody in there
I stood still for hours
In front of famous buildings
Then the clouds gathered
And the clouds gathered
And about that time

But then when you least expect it
I...

Jump!
I'll make you jump
I'll make you jump
I'll make you jump
I'll make you jump
I'll make you jump

I think the answer
Lies in the basilica
Eating ???
Down by the ??? ceiling
And suffering ???
A night at the museum

Sometimes I am trembling
And sometimes I'm made of stone
But always I am watching

I'll make you jump
I'll make you jump
I'll make you jump
I'll make you jump
I'll make you
I'll make you...jump
