No Power

10 Sept 1987




In New York, one night, in 1965
The lights went out
No electricity had triggered true anarchy

People caught in a city;
“Oh, my God. no electricity!“

People caught in a city;
Running around, it's anarchy.

Did people loot. no!
No authority;
They were free without electricity.

Lending out helping hands
And they were free, unwatched citizens.

A news poll was taken from several papers
and magazines. Many people actually
enjoyed the situation. Others had even said
that they had wished that it would never
have ended.

People caught in a city;
Helping each other; ,
No electricity.

The crime rate had actually gone down;
And there were no cops
Standing around;
It seems that the police were busy with
elevators.

People caught in a city
Enjoy the taste of anarchy;

No authority to store you into action. '
Just ordinary people who co-operated.
Naturally.

Unfortunately, people still hold on to the old idea that
government is needed Even with the proof that two peace is
available, mankind still clings to the superficial security
blanket known as government.
