"..the song came to me
on a beautiful hazy morning in may
i'd been reading some fritz leiber and
was doodling jimmy webb's 'wichita lineman'
on the piano
then I went for a long walk along the river
and up to the power station on faerie lane
as I passed beneath the overhead cables
they began to hum and buzz and
the ground shook
the pylons sparked and sparkled furiously
and words appeared in my head
..I realized that the electricity
was communicating with me..."
