lyrics

I wanna tell you a story about a future vision I once had from an old ancient god
Who sent down an army of machines to take the power from the land, bring it back above

They rode carriages without horses, brought electric light
Called it magnetic motion, lit the sad cafe
When the bullets rang on our doorstep, they'd done it "for the Lord"
Whole towns were mowed over looking for where power was stored

Do you need power?
Do you need power?
Do you need power?
It's in the heart of man

She said, "Don't worry, boy
You've won me over
Just be careful, be on time
And if I shake like a willow, hold me tighter"

And we'll stay up late with our radio
In case the raid comes at night
We'll go down listening to powerful sounds
Making pantomime, blown saxophones wail

Do you need power?
Do you need power?
Do you need power?
It's in the heart of man.

It’s a question that’s been asked from time to time
The answer, not hard to remember
One body who receives the light
Into the heart of man
