Denizens of Power

by Chris Sorrenti


Oh - I’ve - been - dizzied by the denizens of power – power!
In my brain like a hurricane
Dizzied by the denizens of power – power!
Swept away like a tidal wave
Dizzied by the denizens of power
It could be you and it could be me
Dizzied by the denizens of power
Rushing down the rails like a runaway train
Dizzied by the denizens of power

Dizzy - dazzle - dizzy -
Repeat these words over and over while someone simultaneously saying the line:
dadadadadada – denizens

Having said them several times and continuing to say them,
The lead vocalist then recites the following spoken verse:


We’ve seen them in the papers
We’ve seen them on TV
Dazzling us with their infinite wisdom
Yes it could be you and me
We can use our love as a catapult – catapult!
To get us to the promised land
And with our friends and family by our side
We can call ourselves the denizens of power

And - I’ve - been - dazzled by the denizens of power – power!
Like a ride on a rollercoaster
Dazzled by the denizens of power – power!
Christmas day all year round
Dazzled by the denizens of power
It could be you and it could be me
Dazzled by the denizens of power
Household names in every town and city
Dazzled by the denizens of power
Dazzle dizzy dazzle

Dizzy dazzle dizzy dazzle
Dazzle dizzy dazzle dizzy
Dizzy dazzle dizzy dazzle
Dazzle dizzy dazzle dizzy
Dizzy dazzle dizzy dazzle
Da da da da da da….
Dizzied by the denizens of power

REPEAT 1ST VERSE

CLOSE OFF WITH:

Just don’t try to make sense of the well placed mess
For that power is far beyond you - beyond you - beyond you -
Me and you
Me and you
Me and you…

REPEAT AND FADE
