St. Vincent – The Power’s Out Lyrics

Advertisement

monday morning subway station pushers pushing racers racing came the message on the station the power’s out across the nation
and ladies and gentleman it seems we’ve got a problem the man on my screen said just as somebody shot him
and the mothers gasped the children cried almost could not believe my eyes
the power’s out and no one can save us no one can blame us now
that the power’s out

it was pouring like a movie every stranger looked like they knew me handsome cowboys praying gothic said I just remembered being happy
and “ladies and gentleman do remember me smiling” the queer on the train said as she jumped off the platform
and some blind folks held the police crying I swear to you I would not lie
the power’s out
the power’s out and no one can save us no one can blame us now
that the power’s out

that’s why I never came home
