Power Underneath Dispair
by Blue Öyster Cult

You boys are surprised to see me
Never thought I'd get out of jail
Took eight long years to spring me
And two hours to ride the rail

Took only thirty minutes to find you
Asking every snake slithering the street
'Where's the man with the golden tattoo?
The man who let me take the heat?'

You're surprised in your neon lair
By the power underneath despair

Power underneath
Power underneath
Power underneath despair

Power underneath There's a power
Power underneath
Power underneath despair

Power underneath There's a power
Power underneath Yeah the
Power underneath despair

Power underneath There's a power
Power underneath
Power underneath despair

In solitary for two steel years
Thought of you sixty times an hour
Fighting madness and fighting despair
Digging the hidden power

Thought about you in the yard
When your punk slipped me the blade
Thought about you in the hospital ward
When I gave it back to him in trade

And my smile is the last sight you'll see
As you feel the power from inside of me

Power underneath
Power underneath There's a
Power underneath despair

Power underneath
Power underneath
Power underneath despair

Power underneath There's a power
Power underneath
Power underneath despair

Power underneath
Power underneath There's a
Power underneath despair

Power underneath
Power underneath There's a
Power underneath despair

Power underneath
Power underneath
Power underneath despair

Power underneath There's a power
Power underneath
Power underneath despair

Power underneath There's a
Power underneath
Power underneath despair

The hook-and-cross logo was designed by Bill Gawlik in January 1972,and appears on all of the band's albums In Greek mythology,..the hook-and-cross symbol is that of Kronos, the king of the Titans and father of Zeus..and is the alchemical symbol for lead . In Roman mythology, the hook-and-cross symbol represents Saturn, the God of agriculture and fertility.The hook and cross symbol also resembles the sickle, which is associated with both Kronos and Saturn (both the planet and the Roman God).

Can't believe how underrated this album is, it's bloody amazing. Some fantastic tracks on it.

How many killer tracks can one band have... imagine having to put the set list together for one of their shows these days. What a challenge that would be! :)

ajvasta

actually, their set lists are pretty lazy....it's almost as if even THEY don't know how deep their catalog is.

John Houlgate

Shades of Flaming Telepaths. This band hasn't strayed from its roots, it's grown from them. Kick ass song.
