"Electricty" as written by Elton John and Lee Hall....
I'm running here
Every focus is splintered
Every attempt he can afford
Rendered pointless and it's streaming down
Senses together they move cleaner than transit will allow
And sometimes I want to move cleaner than transit will allow to be


Now in between
Leaving and arriving
I can try to digest this sequence of events
Again I draw it out
And again I get delayed reaction
I get splinters
I watch the people and their cars
It's slow motion
They're beautiful like breaking glass
Not yet broken
My motion is silver on the point
Of a moment, splinter, moment
My vision, the colour of


Moment, splinter, moment
Splinter into colour
And let me be

    General Commentthe notion of eletricity is about wanting to speed up your current life. i'm not referring to wanting to top yourself or anything but instead wishing things would move a bit faster than they were currently moving. this has a great clip.

    General Commenti think it's interesting that there are several "green" references in the song. The whole concept of wanting to "move cleaner than transit will allow" and in contrast the second verse is "I watch the people and the cars, it's slow motion they're beautiful like breaking glass, not yet broken." I'm not saying this was their intention, but it could be seen as an "environmentally friendly" song
