Our one source of energy
The ultimate discovery
Electric blue for me
Never more to be free
Nuclear and HEP
Carbon fuels from the sea
Wasted electricity

Our one source of energy
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

    General CommentFantastic song, I have loved it for 20 years, but interestingly, for Australia, it could be totally true, what with climate change and peak oil.

    The Chance to Change has nearly gone!

    General CommentIf this was a They Might Be Giants song, we would take the lyrics at face value and conclude it's simply a song about ... Electricity! No deeper hidden meaning, no ulterior motive. Just a bit of fun talking about the movement of electrons. Why should OMD be held to a different standard? Unless there's a verified statement from OMD to the opposite, I say this song is nothing more than a simple song about electricity. (For what it's worth, I can totally envision a TMBG song with these exact lyrics.)

    MemoryA fantastic song, I first heard this before I even knew it was them at a fairground, they played the song to these puppets dancing, in a box, & I loved the song at first hearing, then when I got home it was on the radio, that's when I found out it was omd, I've been hooked ever since!
