lyrics

Electricity flows from his fingertips and his breath makes windmills spin
His gaze is rays of golden sun and they'll burn you if you sin
But when he sees you mining coal he cries tears into hydro dams
He's the energy god of the land

It's his responsibility to supply all the energy
For earth and all that's heavenly for now and all eternity
He runs on his treadmill all day and when he runs it generates
And all the gods clap and say yay and turn on their laptops to play
He wishes he could stop to rest but it's his job, he'll do his best
Power sure makes gods feel blessed but how he wishes they'd use less
At least he looks good in a toga not that any ladies notice
They're too busy reading Vogue and heating rooms for bikram yoga

Electricity flows from his fingertips and his breath makes windmills spin
His gaze is rays of golden sun and they'll burn you if you sin
But when he sees you mining coal he cries tears into hydro dams
He's the energy god of the land

The people down on earth don't see they're using too much energy
And soon he thinks that maybe he will have a heart attack or three
If he drops dead on his feet the energy will fast deplete
And all the people there will bleat and mourn for all their wasted heat
He tries to send them subtle signs that he can't keep up with the times
Global warming gets denied and peak oil covered up with lies
But god is love and love is blind and though he knows his dear mankind
Will kill him one joule at a time for them he'd gladly bleed and die

Electricity flows from his fingertips and his breath makes windmills spin
His gaze is rays of golden sun and they'll burn you if you sin
But when he sees you mining coal he cries tears into hydro dams
He's the energy god of the land
