*Power* (Lord/M. Rogers)

A5 D5 A5

D5 A5       
It began by 
4 o'clock
Across the block, 
across the state
We lost the calls, 
we lost the lights
Without our sight, 
we didn't wait
First it was our building
Then it was the street
Then it was the city
Then it went complete:

It was half the country

D5 A5       
We began 
the walking down
A second time around, 
we'd done this before
We made it home, 
we could finally act
We could see the fact, 
that it was hardly war
People funneled traffic
Others got supplies
Restaurants offered water
That brought it to our eyes:

No one panicked

E5 A5 E5

A5 E5
So we stayed, 
while the power failed
When the noise derailed, 
without distractions
We didn't hide, 
no more hypnosis
No weekend grosses, 
no blank reactions
We lived beyond the pulsing
Thoughts were let alone
We didn't break or enter
It's nothing so unknown:

We stared the grid down
