The Volt Age
Copyright 1988 The Tic Tok Men

Current. Electricity.
From the power plant
Current. Electricity.
And electric light
Current. Electricity.
From the power plant
Current. Electricity.
Powers my computer

Circuit. Energy. Power.
The Volt Age
Circuit. Energy. Power.
The Volt Age

I had been monitoring
From an outer spiral nebular outpost
Lost in the blue screen
of Ordinator malfunction
From the variegated surface of carbonized rock
Came a signal pulse
I called to the coordinates
There was no answer yet

Had you heard but not heard?
Had you heard but not heard?
Had you heard but not heard
that it was The Volt Age?

The wires go through me
The wires go round me
The wires that hold me
The wires frees me

Then a communiqué
Growing stronger with every orbit
Sent a message of point line to plane & acute angles
Molecular autobahn of alternating currents
I send my regards to the 18th century physicist

The potential of the stars has now been harnessed
The powered-up station awaits your arrival

The wires go through me
The wires go round me
The wires that hold me
The wires frees me

Current. Electricity.
From the power plant
Current. Electricity.
And electric light
Current. Electricity.
From the power plant
Current. Electricity.
Powers my computer

Circuit. Energy. Power.
The Volt Age
Circuit. Energy. Power.
The Volt Age
