"the power is on" as written by and Ian Parton....
Watch who's comin' at you
Why? who's got the power?
Watch who's comin' at you
If you might allow her
Watch who's comin' at you
Why? who's comin' through?
One, a bit right then we got two
Watch who's comin' at you
But don't fuss
Watch who's gonna get you back on the bus
Watch you change your light bulb
Then you take a shower
Watch who's comin' at you
Why? who's got the power?

If you hear us say "come USA"
There ain't no way the gangstas say
Why hello, hello, H-E-L-L-O
Well I need you I want you to know its A-OK

Falcons, falcons, falcons, falcons
Blood stripe falcons

"I woke up this morning out the door,
I told the guy who's at the door,
I took the morning to read the paper,
See if the news was all okay"

Watch who's comin' at you
Why? who's got the power?
Watch who's comin' at you
If you might allow her
Watch who's comin' at you
Why? who's comin' through?
One, a bit right then we got two
Watch who's comin' at you
But don't fuss
Watch who's gonna get you back on the bus
Watch you change your light bulb
Then you take a shower
Watch who's comin' at you
Why? who's got the power?

Lets go
Lets go
Lets go
Watch who's.
Got the.
Power.

Lets go
Lets go
Lets go
Watch who's.
Got the.
Power.

Falcons, falcons, falcons, falcons
Blood stripe falcons.

    General Commentno, this song definitely has something to do with the american government.. 'blood stripe falcons', and talking about power, being watched when you go about your daily life, 'but don't fuss'- because the government will bring you down, just watch who's coming at you, because the leaders of america have the power, not you.

    General Commenti love this band... these lyrics might just not mean anything at all... i think its all about how the song sounds like, the cheerleading-like voices in the background are no more than just another sound added to the song, i like it, this is an intresting and certainly catchy song, thats all

    General CommentI don't think these lyrics are correct at all. That's not what it sounds like to me. Where did they come from?

    General CommentThe lyrics are unintelligible as far as I'm concerned, even if you can make them out. I just prefer listening to how awesome the words sound.

    General CommentI could never make out the lyrics on any their songs, but I kind of love them. First picked up them in '07 when I heard Universal Speech streaming on KSCU. I had never heard them before and had no idea who they were. I didn't even catch their name or the song name. It wasn't until I saw "Whip It!" about 2 years later that I discovered who they were...when I heard this song.
