Power Failure Lyrics
by Gary Brooker, Keith Reid
Copyright 1971 Bluebeard Music Ltd., controlled in the U.S.A.
and Canada by Chrysalis Music Corp./ASCAP
recorded by Leo Kottke on:
1975 "Chewing Pine" (Capitol)
1978 "Leo Kottke The Best" (Capitol)
Climbing out of open windows,
Crashing down from broken stairs,
Keeping watch on smoking cinders,
Falling over burning chairs.
Tossed and crossed, and screwed in transit.
Broken, splintered, bruised and thrown.
Badly shattered, gale forced frighty,
Rushed across and shown alone.
Speech reduced by poor relations
Strung from weeks of self-abused,
Chopped up, churned out, weeks of greazy
Spark plugs burnt up power's fused
