Electric Light Orchestra

Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) are a British rock group from Birmingham, England who released eleven studio albums between 1971 and 1986 and another album in 2001. ELO were formed to accommodate Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne's desire to create modern rock and pop songs with classical overtones. After Wood's departure following the band's debut record, Lynne wrote and arranged all of the group's original compositions and produced every album. more »

Listen to me sister, I got news from the governor, 
And he´s heard people shouting from the towers in the city, 
While their babies grow in test tubes over night.

Run and fetch the priest 'cause there´s a light on in the building, 
And there´s sounds blowin out in the music of the night, 
And we should try to get the people out alive.

Movin´ cross the ocean with the flag of death a'flyin', 
The demon butcher pointin' out the message on the tide, 
And the demons light a´sailin' at his side.

Stormin' down the airwaves comes the protest and the prayin', 
And the love that shone down from the sun to the world, 
No longer could support the life it gave.
