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]
