Song structure and words ------------------------ [Intro 2x] [Over verse progression 4x] What's this hummin' in my head? Was it something that someone said? It's connecting us to them. Electric wires turned on again. [Over chorus progression 2x] It aggravates and it pacifies Hear the power in the lines [Over verse progression 4x] Strung up high on every pole, How can this power be bought and sold? Trying to harness solar rays, Making minutes seem like days. [Over chorus progression 4x] It captivates, as it hypnotize, Hear the power in the lines. [Over outro progression, 4x] Powerline [Repeat intro riff 2x]
