The Power Is Down

This song is by Red Box and appears on the album Motive (1990).

Holy Moses Israel
When are you going to turn the light on?
Boy oh boy the U.S. of A.
Where are all the bold and angry?

What we have is a permanent dark
The motor won't spark
When the power is down
What we have is a permanent freeze
The motor will seize
When the power is down
Power is down
Power is down

So low in the U.K.
No more a guiding light to draw to
No way, no way S.A.
A power surge is crawling up your mainframe

What we have is a permanent dark
The motor won't spark
When the power is down
What we have is a permanent freeze
The motor will seize
When the power is down
Power is down
Power is down

I'm listening for whispers amongst the shouts
I'm searching for, I'm searching for
I'm straining to find even one light house
I'm on receive, on receive
Don't know which half to be
Don't know which half to believe

What we have is a permanent dark
The motor won't spark
When the power is down
What we have is a permanent freeze
The motor will seize
When the power is down
Power is down
Power is down

And I'm never going back
Last call, last call
No, I'm never going back
And I'm ready to pack
