Electricity

Album: Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (1979)
  • Our one source of energy
    The ultimate discovery
    Electric blue for me
    Never more to be free
    Electricity
    Nuclear and HEP
    Carbon fuels from the sea
    Wasted electricity

    Our one source of energy
    Electricity
    All we need to live today
    A gift for man to throw away
    The chance to change has nearly gone
    The alternative is only one
    The final source of energy
    Solar electricity

    Electricity
    Electricity
    Electricity
    Electricity
    Electricity
