This song is about the rivalry between Thomas Edison and Nicola Tesla.
Hey! Let me tell you about power.
Two men at war.
Hey man, let me tell you about war son.
Those men at war.
Hey! Let's just talk about power,
and the death it's wrought.
Hey man, let's just talk about war son.
Those men that fought.
"I have a plan and the people will choose when it's done."
"How about this beast?
Come slay this dragon with the sentence we've handed down.
(Step right up)
How about this switch?
Come feel this current and the feeling of witnessing death.
Ditch-digging fool Nicola Tesla,
and his current leads you to doom.
Flowing both ways, killer and menace.
Demonstrated by elephant death."
Thomas! Slaughter the beast for the crowd.
Power! Alternate please for the crowd.
Slaughter the beast for the power.

Certainly a controversial direction for the band, but this album ultimately rests as my favorite from TTNG. The technical mastery of their previous albums is still present here along with some very thought provoking and philosophical lyrics. I may not always agree with the lyrical messaging, but this is an album which rewards careful listening. Syobnaf
