"State Of The Art (A.E.I.O.U.)" lyrics - JIM JAMES

"State Of The Art (A.E.I.O.U.)"

Daylight come
Daylight go
How far will it reach?
Ain't nobody know

And when the dawn breaks
The cradle will fall
And down will come baby
Cradle and all

And now I know you need the dark
Just as much as the sun
But you're signing on forever
When you ink it in blood

A.E.I.O.U., A.E.I.O.U.
I use the state of the art
Suppose to make for better living
Are we better human beings?
We got our wires all crossed
The tubes are all tied
And I'm straining to remember
Just what means to be alive

A life worth living
Now you can feel it in your chest
Building like a little birds
Just building up the nest
And you build it up strong
And you fill it up with love
And you pray for good rain
All from the Lord above

A.E.I.O.U., A.E.I.O.U.

I use my state of the art
Now don't you forget it
It ain't using me
'Cause when the power goes out
I got other means
'Cause when the power's goin' out
I hear the power's going out
I mean it the power's going out
I really mean it the power's going out
